Intro

Whether you want to cruise along meandering rivers, traverse jagged valleys in search of proboscis monkeys, Sumatran rhinos, elephants and orangutans, or experience longhouse tribal culture, Borneo has it all. Go rafting or hiking, explore vast cave complexes, dive world-class coral reefs and discover pristine wilderness. 

Part Malaysia, part Indonesia and part Brunei, Borneo has a unique geography, teeming with endemic species of mammal, bird and marine life - and incredible rainforests. Its culture is also extremely rich and diverse with ethnic Malay and Chinese living alongside former headhunters such as the Iban, Kenyah and Penan. Our tours cover the Malaysian part of Borneo which consists of Sarawak in the West and Sabah in the East, each offering a different perspective on the island. Sarawak is where the majority of the tribal people are to be found and Sabah has a greater wealth of wildlife.
