Family Adventures in Borneo
Originally published 10 January 2011
Our recent holiday to Borneo with Audley turned out to be the trip of a lifetime for all sorts of reasons.
Both Wayne and Jonathan, our guides on different parts of the trip, were wonderful – helpful, informative and fun – and although the orang-utan were by far the stars in animal terms, we all agreed that the highlight of our trip was staying with the Iban tribe in their traditional longhouse.
It was a fantastic experience, we were made so welcome and stayed up late learning riddles and card games from our hosts and then taught them some of ours. One of the girls from the tribe tweaked my nose as forfeit in one of their games!
We learned so much about their way of life and had such an amazing time that we have lots of wonderful memories to take away and cherish from our trip.
Itinerary Ideas in Malaysian Borneo
This is a great trip for those wanting to get off the beaten track. A mix of history, culture, wildlife and jungle, there is also plenty of trekking to be done for the more active traveller. Starting in the colonial city of Kuching, you will then be thrown into the heart of the jungle and the legendary ‘Headhunter’ territory before relaxing on a beautiful island for a well earned rest!View Itinerary
