Blanketed with some of the richest equatorial rainforest in the world, Borneo shelters rare species and indigenous tribes and claims dramatic scenery. Our Borneo specialists have journeyed along the rivers and trekked jungle trails so they can advise on the most authentic experiences and remote jungle lodges the country has to offer. Encouraging you to get off the beaten path, we can tailor-make a Borneo vacation to match your interests, employing specialist guides and arranging stays at enviable hotels.
The island is divided between three countries: the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak in the north, the Indonesian state of Kalimantan to the south, and the tiny sultanate of Brunei. Orangutans, pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and clouded leopards thrive in Borneo’s conservation areas, while, off the coast, reefs teem with tropical fish and turtles. Adventures range from climbing Mount Kinabalu to exploring cave networks, visiting the longhouses of the local Iban tribe or cruising the Kinabatangan River.
