Reasons to Visit Borneo

  • Diving & snorkelling

    Simply grab your snorkelling gear and jump in to the warm turquoise waters awash with life! Coral reefs, turtles and brightly coloured fish can be seen all over the east coast. For keener divers, several islands off the east coast are considered amongst the world's best locations.

  • Indigenous peoples

    The times of headhunting in Borneo are behind us now but even up until the 1960's this was common practice in the interior of the country. Today you can still visit the riverside tribal longhouses and enjoy a glass of rice wine with the elders of the village.

    Indigenous peoples
  • Orang-utan

    Critically endangered, orang-utan are now found on only two islands in the world, Borneo being one of them. There are three main areas where you can see these fantastic creatures: the Kinabatangan River, the Danum Valley and the Tabin Wildlife Reserve.

  • Trekking

    Climbing Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Southeast Asia, is top of many people's list when they come to Borneo. The five day Headhunters Trail takes you through longhouses and forest camps. In Maliau Basin you can experience a unique Lost World rarely visited by anyone other than researchers. In Danum Valley you can explore the jungle on the look out for wildlife.

  • Wildlife

    Taking a boat through the jungles of Borneo gives you an amazing opportunity for a close-up view of pygmy elephants, proboscis monkey, crocodile and dozens of bird species, such as native hornbills. If you prefer to explore by land then you can trek through pristine rainforests on the look out for monkeys swinging through the trees - and of course there are orang-utan.

Tailor-made holidays to Borneo

Borneo’s sheer, jagged valleys shelter a rich variety of creatures, such as elephants, proboscis monkeys and, of course, orang-utan. Among them, tribes still practice ancient ways of life in harmony with their pristine surroundings, and lazy rivers snake through the jungle past stunning caves, before finding the South China Sea at idyllic beaches.
