Borneo is home to some of the most diverse and beautiful wildlife in the whole of South East Asia. Starting with a visit to majestic Mt Kinabalu, we then continue to one of the trip highlights - the pristine Danum Valley. A nature lover's paradise, whose beauty and animals are equalled only by Sarawak and the World Heritage Mulu National Park with its immense cave system and the oldest rainforest in the world. We come face to face with Orang-utans at the Sepilok sanctuary, stay at a bamboo longhouse in Sabah on a tea plantation, and finish the trip in the historic port town of Sandakan.

Expand All
icon Day 1 : Start Kuching
Location:

  Kuching


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Hotel Lime Tree or similar


Meals Included:

  No Meals


The capital of Sarawak, Kuching, is a vibrant riverside city full of
different ethnic groups who have migrated from the surrounding forests. With
a great museum and a well preserved colonial centre there is much to do in
this fascinating cultural hot spot.
Those arriving using their own arrangements can arrive at any time. There
will be a group briefing this evening at 6pm with your tour leader after
which we can have dinner at the hawkers stalls on the waterfront.

icon Day trip to Bako N.P. famous for Proboscis monkeys
Location:

  Bako National Park


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Hotel Lime Tree or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Our first foray into Borneo’s amazing nature as we head to nearby Bako
National Park famous for its Proboscis monkeys. This is where the rainforest
meets the sea and the only way to get to the park is by boat (after a 1hr
drive out of the city). It has abundant wildlife, jungle streams, waterfalls,
interesting plant life, secluded beaches and trekking trails. Despite being
the smallest National Park in Sarawak, Bako contains almost every type of
vegetation found in Borneo.
Please note that as Bako NP is only accessible by boat, our time there is
often dictated by tides and weather conditions. Our leader will inform us of
the details the previous day.
We return to Kuching for the night.

icon Day 3 : Fly to Mulu N.P.; sunset walk to Deer Cave for bat exodus
Location:

  Mulu National Park


Accommodation:

  Mulu National Park Garden Cottages or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


We leave the city behind and fly to Mulu National park (schedules for this
flight often vary). After checking-in at the Park HQ, we will be introduced
to the park guides and head through the forest to Deer Cave. Some of the
caves have been mapped by occasional expeditions; they have their own
ecosystems with plants and animals living in the cave chambers.

Deer Cave, the largest cave passage in the world, is home to millions of bats
and swifts that live side by side on the roof of the cave. The cave floor has
a raised platform, though that is no escape from the smell of the 'guano' –
the excrement from millions of birds and bats. Close-by is Lang's Cave, which
though much smaller, has some excellent stalactites and stalagmites and other
cave formations. The forest around the caves is spectacular and there is
plenty of time to examine it closely.
The walk to Deer Cave is 3kms (each way) along boardwalks and there are
wooden steps leading to different viewing platforms inside the show caves.
We will arrive at Deer Cave in time for dusk which is when the bats leave the
comfort of the cave to feed on insects (as long as it is not raining). This
is a sight to behold with the bats leaving the cave in a long line snaking
across the sky for quite some time. Dependent on the timings of the day we
may visit the caves tomorrow instead.
Please note that due to flight schedules there isn’t much time for lunch
between the time we arrive at Mulu NP and the time we depart for the caves.
You should buy something at the airport to have later.

icon Day 4 : Full day exploring Mulu N.P.
Location:

  Mulu National Park Entrance, Sarawak.


Accommodation:

  Mulu National Park Garden Cottages or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Today is a day for exploring this stunning park with a local guide. In the
morning we visit two of the 'show caves' including Clearwater where a picnic
(not included) lunch can be had in the gorgeous riverside location. The park
has some incredible statistics; It has over 3,500 plant species, 8,000
different types of fungi and 170 species of orchid. Over 100 new plant
species were discovered between 1960 and 1973, and many are still being
added. There are 262 species of bird, almost 300 species of butterflies and
many reptiles and mammals.

Members of the Penan tribe live within the park. They are a small population
of nomadic forest dwellers who live as hunter-gatherers. There has been
fierce international opposition to the Malaysian government who tried to
settle them in permanent longhouses and indeed the Penan themselves have also
resisted. In 1994 they were granted an area of the forest where they could
continue their traditional lifestyle. Although you are unlikely to meet these
elusive people, you occasionally see their fishing shelters or areas in the
forest where they have recently visited.

This afternoon simply relax in the park and listen to the weird and wonderful
creatures that call it home or explore self-guided trails within the park.

Those with a head for heights can try the optional canopy walkway. This
480-metre skywalk takes approximately 2 hours to complete. Along the way,
visitors may be able to see macaque monkeys, hornbills, flying lizards,
squirrels and a variety of rainforest birds. However, time slots to do the
canopy walk can be limited and may subject to availability during busy
periods.

In the evening there is an optional night walk or we can try the local Mulu
'firewater', Tuak.

We aim to catch the morning flight out of Mulu and on to Kota Kinabalu via
Miri though delays are not uncommon. Depending on what time we fly out of
Mulu there may be some time to walk along self-guided trails or at the
visitor’s centre.
Known as KK to the locals, the capital of Sabah is a now a modern
multi-cultural city. The evening is free to relax, explore the bustling
Filipino markets or enjoy a sundowner on the waterfront.

Location:

  Kota Kinabalu


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

Today you are free to enjoy some of the many activities Kota Kinabalu has to
offer. A popular option is to visit one of the tropical islands in the marine
park, a 15 minute boat journey from the city and offering excellent
snorkelling and diving opportunities. Here you can never be bored whether you
are relaxing on the white sand, snorkelling or just swimming in the warm
South China Sea.
There is some good birdwatching opportunities in the wetlands not far from KK
as well as a cultural village in Mari Mari for an insight into the different
cultures of Sabah. Your tour leader can help organise any of these options.

Transfer about 2 hours and explore World Heritage Site; Mount Kinabalu
National Park, home to the highest mountain in South East Asia, Mount
Kinabalu at 4,095m. This impressive peak of huge granite walls can be viewed
from the Crocker mountain range which we pass over, with panoramic views of
the countryside and soaring hills. The lower mountain slopes are covered in
thick vegetation and it is well known for its diverse botanical and
biological species. En route, we stop at Nabalu market where villagers come
to sell their produce and handicraft. It’s possible to walk through the
plantation on your own if you want this afternoon. Tea, medicinal herbs,
fruit and vegetables are just some of the things produced locally. From the
plantation, the sunrise with a view of Mount Kinabalu is often spectacular.
If we are lucky it may be possible to view the spectacular rafflesia in
flower nearby or en route to the plantation.

Location:

  Labuk Bay (platform B)


Accommodation:

  Hotel

We visit the tea factory before we leave the plantation behind and continue
our journey to Eastern Sabah. Our destination is Sepilok, a well-known
destination for its Orang-utan Sanctuary. The journey time is about 5 hours
and we will make a stop at the Labuk Bay Proboscis monkey sanctuary. Here you
can get an up close look at this extraordinary animal which is only found in
Borneo. We continue on to our lodge in Sepilok. This evening, as dusk
approaches we will head to the nearby Rainforest Discovery Centre. The centre
can have fantastic bird watching opportunities (though luck does play a role)
as hornbills and the Borneo bristlehead are often seen and there is an array
of displays which highlights the island’s diverse flora. Orang-utans can
also be spotted during the fruiting season and there is an impressive canopy
walkway as well as some easy walking trails.

Location:

  Sepilok (Orang Utan Sanctuary)


Accommodation:

  Resort, ResortSepilok Jungle Resort


Meals Included:

Up early we return to the Rainforest Discovery Centre for some more bird and
wildlife viewing before returning to our lodge for breakfast. We then visit
Sepilok Orang-utan Centre, the largest orang-utan sanctuary in the world.
Here rehabilitated orphans and captured orang-utans are cared for until they
are ready to be released into the wild. We get the opportunity to see these
incredible relations of ours close-up and learn about the very real threats
to their continued existence. You will have the chance to visit both morning
and afternoon feedings. There is also an orang-utan nursery where youngsters
are trained in climbing skills with the aim of reintroduction to the wild. We
will have the chance to view the youngsters from a special viewing platform
that sits behind one-way glass so as not to disturb or influence them.
There is the option of visiting the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre
which works with rescuing and rehabilitating captured bears as well as
research and providing education to the community.


icon Day 10 : To Gomantong Caves; onto Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary
Location:

  Gomantong Caves


Accommodation:

  Lodge, Nature Lodge Kinabatangan or similar


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning we journey (2-3 hours) to the Kinabatangan River, stopping at
the bizarre Gomantong caves along the way.

The caves are a major source of the swiftlet bird nests that are a Chinese
delicacy. Every day, when in season, workers climb large ladders up to 400
feet up to the roof of the caves to collect the valuable nests. It is also a
good place for bird watching and spotting wild Orang-utans.

Our river lodge is located on the mighty Kinabatangan River, the 3rd longest
river in Borneo. The area is home to an astonishing array of wildlife
including ten species of primates, four of which are endemic to Borneo. It
has one of the highest concentrations of proboscis monkeys and orang-utans in
Malaysian Borneo. Other wildlife includes Bornean gibbon, long tailed
macaques, sun bears, and barking deer. The Asian pygmy elephant and clouded
leopard also inhabit this area, but sightings can be rare.* *There are also
over 200 species of birds including hornbills, eagles, herons, kingfishers,
oriental darters, night jars, flowerpeckers and spider hunters. Later this
afternoon we take our first river cruise.

icon Day 12 : To Danum Valley Conservation Centre; jungle walk and nocturnal safari
Location:

  Danum Valley Conservation Area


Accommodation:

  Borneo Rainforest Lodge


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


We drive to Lahad Datu approximately 2-3 hours where we change vehicles and
drive off road into Danum Valley conservation area (approx. 3 hours), the
largest protected lowland dipterocarp forest in Borneo. It is one of the last
remaining pockets of primary lowland rainforest in Asia. Danum Valley is at
the forefront of tropical rainforest research, and home to many rare and
endangered species of mammals and birds – it is a real privilege to spend 2
nights here in the comforts of the Borneo Rainforest Lodge.

Danum Valley is probably the very best place in Malaysia to see wild
orang-utans in their pristine habitat. Apart from orang-utans, it has just
about the complete range of Bornean wildlife and great trails. After settling
in, there is an afternoon jungle nature trek to try and spot the elusive
orang-utan, and after dinner a night drive is possible to spot many of the
shy and retiring creatures of the forest. We will spend our time here with
very experienced guides who accompany us on all our walks. One night drive
and one night walk is included during our stay.

icon Day 13 : Full day guided walk in Danum Valley
Location:

  Danum Valley Conservation Area


Accommodation:

  Borneo Rainforest Lodge

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


We will spend a full day with our very experienced guides. We will have an
opportunity to explore the trails, the canopy walkway and waterfalls whilst
searching for wildlife in this remarkable place. The trek to a look out point
over the Danum Valley takes approximately 1.5 hours each way. Danum is home
to over 275 bird species, 110 species of mammals including orang-utans, five
species of deer, giant flying squirrels, gibbons, bearded wild boars, flying
frogs and the Asian elephant.

  Sandakan


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Accommodation Name:

  Sabah Hotel or similar

Sandakan War Memorial. Sandakan was once a huge logging centre (it first
exported wood in the late 1880s to supply the building of the Temple of
Heaven in Beijing) and is home to many Chinese and Filipinos. The waterfront
is a good place to take an evening walk and the roof top restaurant at the
Nak hotel is a great place to sip a cocktail or two.

icon Day 15 : End Sandakan
Location:

  Sandakan


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


There may be some free time to enjoy the hotel’s pool or explore Sandakan
some more before those on the group flights are transferred to the airport

What's Included

  • Flights from London (if booking incl. flights)

  • 14 breakfasts, 4 lunches and 4 dinners

  • All accommodation

  • Tour leader throughout

  • All transport and listed activities

What's Not Included

  • Visas or vaccinations

  • Travel insurance

Accommodation

You will spend 13 nights in comfortable/standard hotels and lodges. All of which are en suite. There’s also 1 night in a basic longhouse, with twin share rooms and a shared bathroom. The longhouse is a reconstruction of a local Rungus longhouse and is made entirely of wood with rattan walls dividing the rooms. Rooms are simple with mattresses on the ground, Mosquito nets and ceiling fans. Bathroom facilities are shared with hot showers available. The Borneo Rainforest Lodge is a comfortable luxury jungle lodge resort in the midst of teeming primary jungle. In 2021 & 2022, the lodge will be carrying out expansion works (additional wing of villas) at the far end of the property. Works on the new wing will be conducted during the day at specific times only when groups are out on their morning/afternoon activities. We choose to stay at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge primarily because of its prime location, their responsible tourism practices, continued positive feedback and the renowned wildlife viewing opportunities available in the area whilst staying at this award-winning lodge. Single rooms are available (subject to availability) for a supplement for 10 hotel/lodge nights only (singles are not available in Mulu NP or the Danum Valley). Please advise the sales team at the time of booking if you would like to request a single supplement.

Food

All breakfasts, 4 lunches and 4 dinners are included. You should allow about GBP 100-150/ USD 130-200 for food not included. If you fancy a few drinks then you may want to bring a little more as beer and other alcoholic drinks are expensive and you should expect to pay western prices. Malaysia is renowned for its culinary excellence however food can often be relatively unexciting and limited in the lodges and for hotel breakfasts.  Meals will be more varied for everyone in cities and seafood is widely available on the coast. In the bigger hotels and cities the full range of Western and local foods are available. We also suggest you take snack food with you, as it is not freely available. Most meals will be basic based around rice and noodles although most accommodation does offer a western breakfast of beans, toast and eggs. You can generally avoid the spicier food if you wish. Vegetarians will find the food choice limited but are well catered for. Please inform us before departure of any special dietary requests. Please note that in Borneo the availability of certain products is minimal or non-existent, for example wheat or dairy-free, please be prepared for this and you may need to bring these from home.

I went to Borneo because I wanted to see Orang Utans in their natural environment, but I knew little else about the country.

I saw Orang Utans in the rehabilitation centres and in the wild, but I also saw Sun Bears, dolphins, Macaque and Proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants - every day had a WOW moment.

The jungle trekking was tough going at times but our excellent guides made sure they were still enjoyable treks, willingly sharing their knowledge and pointing out things of interest to our group.

I learned so much about the local culture from visits to various centres, but also by chatting to our group leader Manuel.

The accommodation was excellent and the transport provided was very safe.

All activities were enjoyable and interesting - the camera was always in use! This holiday was intended to be a once in a life time trip, but now I want to go again.

The holiday was everything I had hoped for and so much more.

If you want to see the best of Borneo this trip's for you.

Beautiful country, great food, lovely friendly people and oh boy did we see wildlife! So many highlights.

The incredible proboscis monkeys were hilarious and so much fun to watch, silver leaf langurs including a mum and baby, red leaf langurs, long tailed and pig tailed macaques, pit vipers, monitor lizards, orang utans (of course) in Sepilok and also in the wild (very special moments), Bornean sun bears at their rescue centre (definitely worth a visit), mouse deer, Northern Bornean gibbon family in the wild (utterly brilliant to watch), Bornean colugo (flying lemur - which isn't a lemur), red giant flying squirrel which we watched flying with a beautiful sunset backdrop - really special, slow loris, leopard cat - what a find! - sambar deer, loads of frogs, lizards, the most amazing insects ever, a huge 3m long salt water crocodile, baby salt water crocodile, flying lizard, bats galore in the most amazing caves at Mulu and Gomantong which also has the swiftlet nests and of course the bat exodus from Deer cave at sundown, had the most amazing experience watching Borneo pygmy elephants swimming in convoy across a river, young ones too with trunks up, heard them trumpeting and watched two mums with young ones feeding right at the water's edge - so special.

Then there's the birds! Hornbills galore, eagles, hawks, Buffy fish owls, sunbirds, kingfishers, broadbills, storks, egrets, flycatchers, bee eaters, flowerpeckers, bulbuls, kites, sandpipers, herons, doves, mynas and more.

The bird watchers were very happy.

Night walks and the night drive were a revelation, so much comes out at night from scorpions to stick insects.

Not scary at all just fascinating.

Boat trips were excellent, saw so many birds and monkeys in the trees.

Loved staying in the longhouse, an experience not to be missed.

The Borneo Rainforest Lodge in the Danum Valley was exquisite, 5* in every way; the rooms, the food, the attentive staff, the massage, the local guides, the drivers who also spotted wildlife and the red leaf monkeys in the forest having their breakfast at the same time as us.

A superb trip visiting some of Borneo's national Parks and remaining rainforests.

Every day a different highlight.

We saw some amazing flora and fauna from the big (elephants) to the small (lots of frogs).

In between we saw wild orangutans, at least 70 different species of birds topped by 7 different hornbills, reptiles (yes crocodiles), lizards and beautiful butterflies.

And, of course, stunning rainforest.

India

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

Angkor Wat

Cambodia

What do you love most about Angkor Wat?

"You'll feel mesmerised by the ancient designs and each temple has a unique story. I loved exploring the forests to get to each temple. It felt like an adventure on its own. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Angkor Wat

"There are many tour guides at each temple waiting to give you a tour on a tuk-tuk. You can explore by yourself too. Rent a bicycle to get around easily. I'd recommend a motorbike, it's faster!"

Must pack items for Angkor Wat

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

@tiffanyswindow's Top Tips

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."

"Visit the Giraffe centre to hand feed giraffes, watch baby elephants during feeding time at David Sheldrick, feed wild monkeys in the park, eat at Nairobi street kitchen and party at K1 Clubhouse. "

Do I book in advance?

"If you're not on a tour, it's important to book places like David Sheldrick in advance as they are a true sanctuary and only open to the public for 1hr each day to limited numbers. It can book up weeks in advance."

What can I do at night?

"Nairobi has a lot of restaurants and bars. My favourite is K1 Clubhouse with regular DJs, life music, an outdoor beer garden and club vibes! Great drinks, food and atmosphere!"

What do you love most about Nairobi?

"I love Nairobi so much because the people are so welcoming. Locals have always been so kind and helpful and of course, Kenya is so beautiful it keeps me coming back for more!"
