Borneo: Spectacular Biodiversity & Orang-utans

Borneo is one of the most exciting destinations on earth for the nature lover. Here, we can find peculiar animal and plant inhabitants in some of the most inspiring settings. Our journey takes us into some of the oldest and most diverse forests on the planet and includes the fantastic habitats at Mount Kinabalu, a UNESCO World Heritage site. These magnificent forests shelter and nurture one of the world’s richest collections of wildlife and plants. Here we can find a stunning array of exotic birds, including pheasants and parakeets, hornbills and broadbills, cuckoos and kingfishers. Borneo’s fauna notably includes several species that “fly” (glide, really) across forest canopy gaps including the Flying Lizard, Colugo (Flying Lemur) and the flying frogs…that we’ll look to see in action! Other distinctive fauna we have observed on past tours include the Bornean Pygmy Elephant and the Bristlehead, Borneo’s most distinctive endemic bird. Primates will be perhaps the most exciting finds; we might see various species such as the pot-bellied and comic-looking Proboscis Monkey, the Pig-tailed Macaque, the Red Leaf Monkey, the Bornean Gibbon and one of the most endearing animals on earth: the Bornean Orang-utan. Borneo’s fauna will be complemented by its marvelous flora, among which we should see some of the Nepenthes – the giant pitcher plants that are sometimes large enough to capture small vertebrates – as well as the huge and parasitic Rafflesias, the world’s largest flowers. Our outstanding experience will include stays in secluded rainforest lodges and travel by boat through virgin mangrove stands. Join us in 2018 as we return to discover Borneo’s primeval habitats once more! After our wonderful adventures in Borneo’s wild habitats, we invite our travellers to experience the heights of relaxation by enjoying our optional 3-night extension to Gaya Island.
