Highlights

 

To truly experience Borneo is to immerse yourself in the stunning lush jungle home to some of the world’s most exquisite wildlife. Thanks to ongoing conservation projects, mostly funded by tourism, a lot of Borneo’s magical jungles remained untouched and offer some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth. 

Borneo is a melting pot of religions, cuisines, cultures, languages and species and there is little not to be completely enchanted by if you are lucky enough to visit. If thoughts of pristine nature, cultural riches and incredible orangutans in their natural environment isn’t enough to convince you to see this captivating country, knowing that your entire trip is taken care of by us is sure to. 

 Extend your trip with a fabulous Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Cameron Highlands & Penang pre-tour extension!
