The mysterious island of Borneo blends the influence of Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia which is reflected in its amazingly diverse cuisine - while its secret jungles and remote wild places are home to some of the rarest and most endangered creatures on the planet.
Living alongside these exotic animals, and equally hidden away are tribes like the Dayaks still living in longhouses, following ancient traditions, living in harmony with and protecting the rainforest. An enchanting island of pristine sands, exotic plants and animals, plus exceptional mountain landscapes, it has great appeal for aspiring zoologists, botanists and beach lovers alike.
Live the Dream...
Borneo is one of the few remaining strongholds of wild orang-utans but the best way to see these wonderfully engaging apes is the Sepilok Sanctuary where orphans are cared for. Other rare species await discovery in Sukau Rainforest, carved in two by the winding Kinabatangan River and roamed by pygmy elephants, sun bears, the Sumatran rhino and the exquisite clouded leopard. Energetic explorers can climb Mount Kinabalu or head to Gunung Mulu National Park, a UNESCO heritage site where jagged limestone shards jut out of the rainforest while below them stretches the dramatic cathedrals of the Mulu Caves.
Marvel at the Borneo's marine life by snorkelling straight off the jetty in the waters of Gaya Island, while at night take a boat ride through the dazzling firefly displays.
