Orangutan and tribal villages
With some of the world’s most species-rich rainforests, turquoise-fringed beaches and striking mountain peaks, Borneo is a nature lover’s dream. The Sabah rainforests are particularly spectacular, the vast canopies are pulsing with tropical birds and primates, and it is home to some of the largest plants in the world.
Borneo is comprised of the two Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah. Sabah is located on the northern point of the island and, although small, it certainly packs a punch. Around 55 per cent of the region is rainforest, home to a menagerie of primates, leopard, crocodile and more. Here the landscape is flushed with colour, both on land and off the island’s golden shores. Colourful reefs, shimmering with exotic marine life, surround the palm-lined beaches.
And then there’s Sarawak. Close to Kuching, the island’s most dynamic city, you can immerse yourself in the delightful traditions of the Bornease culture. Venture into the rainforest on your Borneo holiday to discover the world’s largest flower, the Rafflesia.
