Focus on the enchanting wildlife of Malaysian Borneo, including orangutan and sun bear rehabilitation centres, the bat exodus from Mulu caves, against a backdrop of tropical jungle
Travellers have been enticed by this region’s riches for centuries, whether spices, silk or silver. Today, their beaches, beauty, wildlife and culture make them popular with backpackers and honeymooners alike. Come with us and fall in love with this tropical paradise, too.
The island of Borneo is split between Malaysia in the north and Indonesia in the south, with Brunei nestled in between. It is home to some of the oldest rainforests in the world, many of which have been incorporated into national parks. They create dramatic backdrops for the island’s pristine beaches and shelter active volcanoes, remote tribes and a wide variety of wildlife, including the orangutan.
Sabah is home to the world's oldest jungles, sandy beaches, Kota Kinabulu and the fascinating Kinabatangan River area which has a concentration of 10 primate species, with some of the most satisfying to spot being the Proboscis monkey.
As well as a wild natural world to explore, you’ll have the opportunity to visit Sarawak, the one-time outpost of the ‘White Rajahs’, Kuching’s museums, temples and classic architecture, and the Mulu caves – the largest cave complex in the world.
