Wild and exotic Borneo is full of natural wonders. The island has some of the world’s most species-rich equatorial rainforests, with wildlife sanctuaries dedicated to the rescue and conservation of the endangered Bornean orangutans. It’s a perfect destination for a trip of a lifetime!

The world’s third largest non-continental island brings together a surprising array of cultures, religions and languages. It’s divided into three countries: Indonesia (Kalimantan) across the south and central region, Malaysia (Sabah, Sarawak) in the north and Brunei on the north-western coast. Everywhere you go, you’ll encounter the warmth and unforced friendliness of local people.
