The jungles of Borneo have evolved over 100 million years. They are the oldest on Earth and provide a unique opportunity to experience an ancient ecosystem along with the tribal cultures that inhabit them. A rugged land of caves, peaks, rivers and forests, Borneo is an irresistible paradise for adventure travelers.

Beginning in the old colonial city of Kuching, we have a city tour and an interesting cultural visit. We start our jungle experience by flying to world-renowned Mulu National Park. Here we explore one of the world's largest cave passages and oldest rainforests, from the base of our comfortable lodge.

We fly to Sabah in the far north of Borneo, where we enjoy easy hikes at the base of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Southeast Asia. Mt. Kinabalu houses celebrated biological diversity, including the rafflesia, the world's largest flower. We visit the tropical islands of Gaya and Manukan. Enjoy 3 days in the remote interior jungle of the Danum Valley. Traveling via Sandakan, we take a boat to Selingan Island to observe sea turtles as they come ashore nightly to lay their eggs.

At the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, we arrive in time for the orphan orangutans' afternoon feeding. The tour winds down on the tranquil Kinabatangan River, where we go on a river safari in search of proboscis monkeys, hornbills and wild elephants.
