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.

  • 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.

Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Borneo

This expansive area of dipterocarp rainforest in the eastern part of Sabah, shelters an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna.

Declared a wildlife reserve in 1984 due to the diversity of animals inhabiting its forest, Tabin plays an important role in preserving Sabah's most endangered species.

Wildlife of the Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Tabin has several mud volcanoes and salt-water springs that are high in minerals and attract a variety of wildlife seeking these nutrients. These are great locations for viewing the forest inhabitants, that can also be seen on treks and night drives. Orang-utans, civet and leopard cats, hornbills, pygmy elephants and, if you are extremely lucky, western tarsiers can all be spotted.

Accommodation at the Tabin River Lodge is in 20 simple but comfortable bungalows located either along the river or on the hillside overlooking the rainforest.
