Highlights of Borneo

Highlights of Borneo - Hero

Independent Tours

Experience a wild adventure as you travel through Sabah and seek out Borneo’s mountains, rivers, and wildlife-filled forests. This private tour takes you into some of the most biodiverse environments on the planet. Travelling overland through Sabah, you’ll witness how the city streets of the state capital merge into the hot and humid jungle surrounding Mount Kinabalu. Therapeutic hot springs, tropical butterfly gardens and rainforest walkways await in Poring, before you board a boat and head along the Kinabatangan River. Staying for two nights in a riverside lodge surrounded by rainforest is bound to be one to tell the grandkids about. For most folk, the opportunity to observe animals in the wild will be an absolute thrill. Unfortunately, Borneo’s wildlife has long suffered at the hands of humans. Visiting Sepilok orangutan centre and the sun bear sanctuary gives you a chance to learn more about rehabilitation and reforesting projects. You’ll also get to see these wonderful animals close up, but without disturbing their normal patterns of behaviour as they learn to rewild. From bat caves and proboscis monkeys to vibrant local markets and sombre WWII monuments; this thought-provoking trip will unveil Borneo’s highlights one step at a time.
