- Stay in a local village
- Spot playful Orang-utans
- Soak in the Poring Hot Springs
Borneo is an amazing tropical paradise. Get up close to Borneo's 'wild-men' at Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Project and to big-nosed Proboscis monkeys at Labuk Bay Sanctuary. Enjoy an idyllic island getaway and snorkel among colourful fish and sea turtles. From our jungle camp we'll head out by longboat and on foot in search of wild macaques and crocodiles. There's time too, for exploring the trails in Kinabalu National Park, and for relaxing in the thermal pools of Poring Hot Springs.
What makes this trip responsible?
The Bornean Jungle has long been subject to the devastating effects of logging and palm plantations, however as the value of eco-tourism is being realised, areas of land are starting to be preserved and granted National Park status, and it is the hope that the pace of deforestation will begin to slow.
Borno is home to many endemic and endangered species, including Orang-utans, Proboscis monkeys, the Western tarsier and Pygmy elephants. On this trip we visit both the Sepilok Orang-utan Rahabilitation Centre and the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary - the entrance fees and donations that our visitors pay go toward the upkeep of these vital projects. We also spend a number of nights in locally-owned accommodation, often in rural settings which ensures that a significant proportion of the money we spend goes directly to the local people.
