Group Size
Limited to 12 Travelers / 9 Travelers on Photo Departures
A very important feature of our Borneo safari is the limited group size of just 12 travelers, as nature encounters are best experienced away from crowds within the intimate setting of a small group. Our photo trips include just nine travelers per departure.

Take this trip on a private basis, traveling exclusively with your immediate family, multi-generational family or group of friends. Click here for details and pricing.

Physical Requirements
Moderate
Travelers must be able to walk unassisted (without the use of walking aids) for a minimum of 2 miles over uneven ground at a steady pace, as well as tolerate daily active excursions in extremely hot and humid rain forest conditions, in order to participate in this trip. The itinerary involves a number of medium- to longer-length walks (typically 2-3 miles each) over a variety of terrain, including boardwalks and unpaved forest trails that can be rough, muddy, slippery and uneven with roots, with some steep inclines. These walks can be quite taxing in the hot and humid climate. Shorter walks are available in some areas in place of more strenuous activities for those who choose. We also travel by vehicle and boat over variable conditions that can sometimes be quite bumpy. Those with back problems or other health issues that could be exacerbated by such conditions should take this into consideration. For those guests who choose, there is an optional opportunity to participate in snorkeling from the beach during our stay at Selingan Turtle Island. Please note that some travel days can be long with multiple flights, and internal flights may require guests to climb up and down several sets of stairs.

On custom or private departures with smaller groups, our ability to accommodate varying levels of physical abilities or interests is limited, since these trips are staffed with a single Expedition Leader who may be assisted, pending availability, by local guides.
Important Information About This Trip
Most of our guests travel to Borneo for encounters with the island’s wildlife. While the nature experiences here are indeed remarkable, there is a fundamental difference between a safari in the Bornean jungle and a typical safari in Africa. At times, guests lured to Borneo by tourist brochures promising “jungle safaris” can be disappointed to see fewer animals than they expected, or at least fewer than they might normally see in Africa. It is not that the surviving jungles are thinly populated with wildlife, but, similar to places like Costa Rica where the forest is thick with vegetation, the creatures have mastered the art of camouflage and deception and can be difficult to spot. At Nat Hab we design our itineraries to capitalize on the best conditions to spot orangutans and other wildlife. But various factors can affect potential sightings, including the occurrence of inclement weather. The secret to a successful Borneo nature adventure lies with the expertise of our Expedition Leaders and local guides, as well as knowing what to expect, and in understanding that the privilege of stepping into a wild and untouched natural realm is a reward in itself.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Please arrive in Kuching by 8 am on Day 1 in order to meet your group at 10 am for an orientation and lunch, which will be followed by afternoon guided activities. You are free to depart Kota Kinabalu at any time on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
