Borneo boasts both the oldest Rainforest in the world and also the region with the highest Biodiversity density in the world, home to a myriad of rare and endangered wildlife species. Check out our Documentary-Video section for a thorough introduction to Sabah and our Travel Articles to get you started.

The biggest highlight in Sabah for most of our guests is a visit to Sukau Rainforest Lodge, recognised by National Geographic as a Unique Lodge of the World and 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.

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

Devoted birdwatchers will be thrilled by the many endemic species of Bornean birds found in their natural habitats.

Apart from the rainforests, Sabah is a haven for ardent divers. Numerous diving locations such as the world renowned Sipadan Island and the surrounding islands and also Langkayan Island provides a diving experience that has been repeatedly rated one of the best dive spots in the world. As for the adventurers, climbing Mount Kinabalu is a must do activity in Sabah. Mount Kinabalu is the highest peak between the Himalayas and Papua New Guinea and stands at 4095m tall with breathtakingly gorgeous sunrises and serenely beautiful when shrouded in clouds.

Surrounded by azure and crystal clear oceans, Sabah is blessed with long white sandy beaches and a warm pleasant climate. Numerous white sandy islands dot the coast, amongst them the famous Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Marine Park which is just a stone throw away from Kota Kinabalu or stay at any one of our 5 star Beach Resorts.

Borneo is also home to the largest cave system,the Mulu National Park in Sarawak. If you're thinking of conquering the pinnacles here, be prepared physically as this trek and climb, though but a day's trip, will challenge you to your limits.

From the moment you land in Borneo, you will be enamored by the locals and their unique cultures. Borneo is home to various indigenous peoples and you will get to experience some of their culture when you visit the tribal long houses in Lemanak, Sarawak and Kudat in Sabah. You can also experience the rich cultural heritage of Brunei as hallmarked by its Royal Palaces, majestic mosques and its charming Water Villages. You will find the people of Borneo very kind and polite, taking great delight in welcoming you, our guests and make you feel at home amongst us. Rest assured that Borneo, though diverse and somewhat exotic, is a place that is harmonious and peaceful.

Besides these remarkable destinations Borneo is offering, you can also take part in many other exciting and memorable trips such as white water rafting, riding an antique train, cycling along pristine beaches and in local villages, visiting tea plantations and agricultural parks as well as sampling the sumptious local food and beverages on offer. In short, Borneo has what it takes to be your favorite holiday destination.

    Cindy and I emailed backwards and forwards extensively prior to booking, and again after. She answered all my queries and addressed my last minute changes promptly, and always made me feel comfortable rather than a fussy client Our tour guide around Sepilok and up the kinabatang river was Toe who was amazing - he has an incredible amount of knowledge about everything, and always has a smile. Thanks for giving us such a great experience.

    From our arrival at the various lodges, to our rooms and the dinning, not to mention our numerous guides...I can't say enough!!! Both Sukau Rainforest Lodge (an adult camp feel) & Borneo Rainforest Lodge (an upscale romantic feel) were unique and truly wonderful. We could not have been treated better, nor could we have experienced and seen more amazing wildlife & nature!! We did a 6d/5n split between the two and I would only say I'd wish we'd done 7/6 so as to have ..(read more)

    We did the 2N / 3D tour from Sandakan, with Joy as our guide. The tour was great value, and although the food at the Sakau Lodge leaves much to be desired, the lodge itself, and the rooms were good, and the staff, excellent. Joy has the eyes of an eagle, and spotted a fabulous number of animals for us to enjoy in the wild, but even she couldn't find us an elusive Pygmy elephant. All the main sights of Sandakan were included, but always the Sepliok Orangantan centre will remain a fa ..(read more)

    From the point of being picked up at Kota Kinabalu airport by Osman right through to being dropped off at Sandakan airport to return to KK everything was perfect. The area around the foothills of Mt Kinabalu is stunning with amazing wildlife to be seen. Selingan Island was a magical experience! Watching a turtle laying eggs was incredibly special. What really struck me was the care and attention staff at the Island give to the whole process. Finally, my time at Sukau lodge was an absolute del ..
