Malaysia & Borneo Holidays
It was another intoxicating day in Malaysia's Taman Negara National Park: steamy, exotic and wriggling with life - and that's exactly why A&K's highly professional guide came into his own. One minute he was helping our guests search for the crab-eating macaque and Malayan Peacock Pheasant, the next he had calmly slipped off his shoes and handed them to one of the group.
Clad only in a bikini and towel, she needed to escape a swarm of rampaging honeybees. Emergency over, without a sting in sight, he collected her spilt possessions from the jungle floor, before, with barefoot nonchalance, returning to identify the prolific wildlife for the fascinated guests.
Expecting the unexpected is nothing new for our highly qualified guides. They're the frontline of our large regional team, that has built up a formidable reputation over three decades and can seamlessly link your Abercrombie & Kent luxury Malaysia and Borneo holiday with surrounding destinations. It's a key reason we've hosted an impressive portfolio of guests, including the organisation representing the world's top 8,000 CEOs.
Marauding insects aren't the only thrill on a tour of the country, of course. You can kick back on the peachy beaches of Penang and Langkawi, where sumptuous resorts are swaddled by verdant hills. Alternatively, we can take you inland to the sticky jungle of Taman Negara - the oldest tropical rainforest on the planet - and the cooler Cameron Highlands with its tea estates, orchards and golf courses, or buzzing Kuala Lumpur with its splendid shopping.
Head east across the South China Sea and you'll embark on an A&K Borneo tour. The Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah offer diving over reefs teeming with blizzards multicoloured tropical fish, the famous orangutan sanctuary and canopy walks above the rainforest's ecological wonderland. Just watch out for those rampant honeybees.
