Borneo

Borneo Rainforest & Beach 10 days

Kick things off by staying on a coral island just off the coast, relaxing and snorkelling in the surrounding Marine National Park. What a great start!

After three nights return to the mainland, visit the Sepilok Orang-utan Sanctuary and witness the remarkable conservation efforts being made. Your wildlife discovery continues as you head to Danum Valley Conservation Area where you will explore primary rainforest and conquer the amazing canopy walk. There's a good chance of spotting wild orang-utan as well as a huge number of other plant and animal species.

Finally, it's back to the beach. Put your feet up and chill out with a three night stay at one of Borneo's beach resorts.

As with all our holidays, we have created lots of free time for you to enjoy as you please. If you would prefer a more ‘complete’ travel programme, we will be happy to oblige. We can also tailor this holiday to meet your exact needs - your holiday, your way.

Highlights

  • Witness orang-utans breakfasting at Sepilok Orang-utan Sanctuary.
  • Immerse yourself in Danum Valley’s ancient pristine rainforest.
  • Explore the underwater world & abundance of marine life surrounding Gaya Island.

We only provide privately guided holidays - meaning that you will not be expected to share guides or transport for the duration of your visit. You can also start on any day you choose.

Please click on the hotel category buttons below to view hotel details. These are recommended properties only - we have many alternative options for you to choose from if you would prefer. You can mix hotel categories throughout your holiday.
