Why Borneo is South East Asia's best-kept secret
Borneo: even the name is evocative, conjuring up images of jungle, headhunters, and up-close-and-personal wildlife encounters amongst the forests' lush canopy. Most people who come here do so to get away from modern day trappings and, as you interact with orangutans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre, take a boat trip at dusk up river, stay in a traditional longhouse with the indigenous Iban people, signs of the twenty first century are few and far between.
It's an amazing country, part of the world's third largest island, the majority of which (including Borneo) belongs to Indonesia, but also to Malaysia and Brunei. The rainforest itself is amongst the oldest and most pristine in the world. During this 18 day quite luxurious getaway, you'll also climb the highest point in the island, Mt Kinabalu, which is actually in Sabah, for epic summit views. Forest camps; following a former headhunting trail and relaxing in a sea-side oasis, it's not surprising that this is one of the most popular trips we offer in South East Asia.
