This unforgettable 9-night adventure offers a dreamy escape from urban life as you head into the luscious jungles and captivating wilderness of Borneo. Along the way, you’ll have ample opportunity to behold the region’s incredible wildlife, from guided treks through enchanting, misty rainforests and spectacular UNESCO-Listed national parks, to sailing excursions along serene rivers in search of monkeys, wild orangutans, crocodiles, elephants and exotic bird species. You’ll also observe those learning to live in the wild again within wonderful sanctuaries and rescue centres, including the famous Sepliok Orangutan Sanctuary and Bornean Sun Bear Conservation.
You’ll have the chance to explore so many aspects of Borneo throughout this tour; take a glimpse into the local traditions and culture of indigenous villages nestled into the countryside, and soak up the bustling atmosphere of riverside markets and modern city life in Kota Kinabalu. After six phenomenal days of exploring, we think the perfect way to round off your trip is with two days spent on the serene, picturesque archipelago of Manukan Island, where you can spend as much time as you like relaxing on the beaches and snorkelling the clear, tropical waters teeming with exotic marine life and breath-taking coral reefs (INT).
