Borneo

For those with a passion for beautiful wildlife, intriguing culture and pristine beaches, then Malaysian Borneo is the perfect destination.

Sabah is renowned for its lush rainforest, which is home to an incredible variety of wildlife in the Danum Valley and Kinabatangan including the comedic proboscis monkey and the iconic, gentle giant of the forest, the Orangutan. There is also South East Asia’s highest peak, Mount Kinabalu, whose walkable slopes are the perfect challenge for the adventurous, whilst the glorious beaches and islands of the northern archipelagos such as Gaya Island are the ideal place to relax and enjoy some world class snorkelling and scuba diving.

Trek in the Danum Valley

Orang Utan

Borneo Rainforest Lodge is located in the Danum Valley, deep in the jungle surrounded by more than 275 species of bird and 110 species of mammals, including the Asian elephant and wild orang-utan.

Learn about the incredible diversity and complexity of the rainforest and today’s conservation realities.

Borneo’s beautiful primary rainforest is one of the oldest in the world and one of the few unspoilt areas of rainforest left. The sheer magnificence of it will keep you in awe as you trek along its trails, swim in its rock pools and get a bird’s eye view of the forest from the canopied suspension bridge.

Traditional Longhouse Visit

I ban Home Stay

Drive through the marvellous countryside of the Borneo Highlands and visit a traditional tribe in their longhouse, the former headhunters of Borneo.

The family will guide you around their village to see how some of their traditions are still alive and how in other parts they have adapted themselves to present day. Enjoy a traditional lunch cooked in bamboo and even stay overnight if you’re feeling adventurous!

The best time to visit Borneo is between March and October.
