Borneo Holidays

No matter how well travelled you are, you won’t have been anywhere quite like Borneo. The third largest island in the world has become best known for its orang-utans, the most charming primate in the animal kingdom. But there is so much more to this hotspot of eco-tourism than its monkey business. Book a Borneo holiday with us and discover some of the oldest undisturbed rainforest on the planet, rare wildlife around every corner and one of the most diverse cultures in South East Asia.

The people of the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak share a total of 156 dialects and a huge variety of religions, so travelling through this region is a real eye-opener. You can expect to travel by traditional longtail boat, stay in tribal longhouses and jungle lodges, hike nature trails rich in flora and fauna, observe pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and rhinos in their natural habitat, enjoy lazy days on idyllic beaches, dive the spectacular South China Sea and spend time with indigenous tribes getting to know their ancient cultures. And that’s before you’ve even caught a glimpse of the Pongo pygmaeus, better known as the orang-utan – Malay for “man of the forest” and the star attraction of any Borneo holiday.

Our tailor-made Borneo holiday specialists have travelled extensively in Borneo and across Asia, researching the best hotels, sites and activities. Book a tailor-made Borneo holiday to this up-and-coming destination and we’ll show you the best bits of this unspoilt haven that is literally bursting with eco-treasures.
