Highlights

Head into the verdant wilds of the Borneo jungle to encounter its most emblematic ginger-furred apes and other wildlife on a 9 day Borneo tour.

The lush jungle of Borneo is one of the world’s last remaining landscapes of its kind. Thanks to ongoing conservation projects, wildlife preservation programs and eco-tourism efforts, this jungle is one of the oldest and most biodiverse on the planet. It is also one of the only places where you can see incredible orangutans in their natural habitat – a promise that nature-loving travellers will find hard to pass up.

Visit the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and feel your breath catch as these majestic apes swing through the forest onto feeding platforms for their breakfast and dinner. Head to the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre to catch a sighting of the Malayan sun bear – the smallest bear species in the world. Wander through a local village on Libaran Island and learn about turtle conservation in the area ahead of a stop at a hatchery. You might even have opportunity to release some of the hatchlings back into the Sulu Sea!

Spend time along the banks of the Kinabatangan River and hop onto a scenic cruise along the water – not forgetting to keep your eyes trained on the jungle canopies for glimpses of wild orangutan. Gain an appreciation for this ecosystem on a guided jungle walk, and have free time in Sandakan to reflect on your tour’s encounters and all of the breathtaking sights you’ve taken in while in beautiful Borneo.
