Ultimate Borneo

  • 4 Weeks

On this grand tour of Borneo tackle the island’s top five treks and enjoy some world-class diving and snorkelling plus encounters with endangered wildlife.

From Kuching explore the local longhouses and Bako National Park. Fly to Miri, which is the base for trips to the impressive Niah National Park; Gunung Mulu National Park for more caves, the heart-pumping trek to the Pinnacles and along the Headhunters Trail; and Bario, in the vine-draped Kelabit Highlands.

Travel overland to Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei’s friendly capital. Also schedule in the sultanate’s Ulu Temburong National Park, a pristine sliver of primary rainforest.

Chill out in Kota Kinabalu before setting your sights on Mt Kinabalu. Catch some ape love at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, followed by a layover in historic Sandakan. The mighty Sungai Kinabatangan offers wildlife enthusiasts plenty of photo fodder. If you’ve got the time (and the dime), head deep into Sabah’s green interior for a trek through the Danum Valley Conservation Area. The magnificent dive sites of the Semporna Archipelago accessed from Semporna provide an ideal climax.
