Welcome to Borneo


Borneo is the world's third largest island after Greenland and Papua New Guinea. It is strategically located in South East Asia and is linked with numerous international and domestic flights. Borneo is occupied by 3 countries, with the largest portion part of Indonesia (Kalimantan), followed by Malaysia (Sabah and Sarawak) and finally Brunei. Borneo is renowned for its untouched rainforests that are home to a myriad of rare and endangered wildlife species.

The biggest highlight in Sabah for most of our guests is a visit to Sukau Rainforest Lodge, winner of Sabah's Best Nature Lodge in addition to numerous other international awards. It is here that you will get to experience and if you're lucky, come face to face with Sabah's endangered wildlife such as the Orang Utan and the Borneo Pygmy elephant in the wild. Indulge yourself by staying three nights here and you'll be glad you did. Sukau is by far the easiest place to view animals in the wild and is a must visit for wildlife enthusiasts, nature lovers and families alike. Check out our new Documentary-Video section for a thorough introduction to Sabah, our new Photo Gallery and Travel Articles section.

For nature lovers, our personal recommendations are tours to Selingan, Danum Valley and Tabin. Hardy adventure travellers would also love our custom designed treks to Maliau Basin and the Crocker Range.
