Home to never ending rainforests and stunning vistas, Borneo is the ideal destination for a family wildlife holiday. Remaining relatively untouched, it has so much to offer including the shy orang-utans in Malaysian Borneo, jungle treks, canopy walks and diving excursions for people of all ability and age.
Not for the faint hearted, be prepared to stay in lodges in the depths of the rainforest, take a boat out to Turtle Island to watch the endangered creatures laying their eggs at night or trek jungle trails to try to catch glimpses of pygmy elephants, lemurs, Sumatran rhino herds and numerous other rare species.
Sabah,in the north east corner of Borneo, is perfect for adventure – from mountain biking to rock climbing. The coastline of Sabah is also stunning with many long stretches of pristine beach and stunning reefs to explore with snorkels or to dive to.
