Borneo Highlights

The depths of Borneo are laden with rugged wilderness, fascinating sites and seriously welcoming people, so meander your way through the lush countryside on a ten-day tribes and wildlife tour of Sarawak and Sabah. Visit vibrant Kuching, learning the cultural heritage and tasting the regional specialties, and head all the way to the natural wonder of the Kinabatangan River and the waterfront splendour of Sandakan. Throw in some market tours, jungle safari, and a typical homestay experience, and you’ve got a true taste of what Malaysia’s Borneo is really like, and gosh, it’s delightful.
