- More Diverse Wildlife Viewing in Widely Varied Settings
This is a comprehensive nature survey of Borneo, encompassing diverse ecosystems: the jungle sanctuaries of Sepilok, Semenggoh and Kinabatangan, mangroves in Bako National Park, and virgin
rain forestin the Danum Valley. In these contrasting locales, we explore from sunrise and don't stop until after nightfall, searching for the endangered orangutan, pygmy elephant, Bornean bearded pig, smooth-coated otter, long- and pig-tailed macaques, monitor lizard, proboscismonkey, rhinoceros hornbill, silvered leaf monkey, numerous tropical bird species, and an array of nocturnal creatures.
- Visit Two Different Orangutan Sanctuaries
A chance to see orangutans is a big reason for coming to Borneo. We maximize your opportunities in two different locations: Sepilok and Semenggoh nature reserves. Semenggoh focuses on the study of orangutan biology and behavior while providing a safe and natural haven for dozens of semi-wild orangutans that are graduates of its original rehabilitation program.
- A Private Guided Tour of the Bornean Sun Bear Center
An inspiring conservation success story, the center provides care, rehabilitation and release of orphaned and captive Malayan sun bears. Its mission is also to increase awareness about the plight of this little-known endangered bear, the world's smallest. We have a private tour of the center either with founder Dr. Wong Siew Te or one of his close conservation colleagues.
- Explore One of the World's Oldest & Tallest Rain Forests
The Danum Valley is a special inclusion on our adventure—to truly experience the primeval biodiversity of Borneo's deepest rain forest recesses, the Danum Valley is an essential stop—and not all itineraries include it.
- A Small Group Ensures More
Wildlife encounters happen most meaningfully in an intimate context. Our groups are limited to just 12 travelers—and only nine guests on photo departures—enabling a quiet, low-impact experience.
- Internal Flights Enhance Comfort & More Time
Rather than subject you
tolong, winding, often bumpy drives, we use air transfers for comfort and efficiency. Two internal flights get you between destinations faster, giving you more time with nature and wildlife.
- From Riverside to Rain Forest, Stay Closer to Borneo's Wildlife
Our accommodations are selected for their quality, atmosphere and secluded locations, getting you as close as possible to nature in the most comfortable settings. From our eco-resort near an orangutan sanctuary to a remote eco
lodgeon the Kinabatangan River and our lodge in Danum Valley that overlooks primary growth rain forest, you are immersed in wild Borneo.
