An active exploration of rainforest trails, caves, and an ascent of Mt Kinabalu
The great rainforests of Borneo offer the active and adventurous the chance to participate in a multitude of exciting activities. We journey into the depths of the equatorial rainforest at Mulu National Park where we explore the largest caves on earth, and trek through the jungle on the Headhunter's Trail, used in years gone by Kayan warriors.
We meet the loveable Orang-utans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre and spend two days at a lodge in the Kinabatanagan Wildlife Reserve where Orang-utans, elephants, Proboscis monkeys and hornbills are frequently seen.
A fitting end to this Borneo adventure holiday is a climb of Mt Kinabalu (4095m), the highest mountain in South East Asia. We take the quieter and more interesting Mesilau Trail, allowing us to fully appreciate the walk and spectacular scenery.
The summit gives panoramic views across the foothills and out to the Sulu Sea. This is a great place to see the sunrise before time at the beach.
What makes this trip responsible?
Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company.
In Mulu N.P. the Penans, and others are employed by the park thereby generating income for their families and improving their economies. The staff are encouraged to provide cultural entertainment (traditional dances and music) helping to preserve their culture. The boats used in the park are all owned and operated by the local people.
