Heart of Borneo by Borneo Eco Tours invites adventure seekers and curious travellers to a unique community-based ecotourism experience that combines the richness of culture, nature and adventure.

The Heart of Borneo is the world’s largest remaining transboundary rainforest where forests still remain intact on the vast island. Being the third largest island in the world, Borneo’s lush rainforests holds approximately 6% of global biodiversity and is home to some of the world’s rarest and unique flora and fauna, including the iconic giant Rafflesia flowers and pitcher plants, Borneo Pygmy Elephants, Orangutans, and Proboscis Monkeys among many others.

In 2007, a programme called the Heart of Borneo (HoB) initiative was established. HoB Initiative is a unique government-led and NGO-supported programme, a joint Declaration initiated by the governments of Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The programme aims to conserve the rich biodiversity of the Heart of Borneo for the good and benefit of people who rely upon its lands through a network of protected areas, sustainable management of forests as well as other sustainable land uses.

Our Heart of Borneo tours are aimed to protect and conserve Borneo’s rainforests and its people’s culture through ecotourism efforts and partnerships. Presently, our HoB tours cover Sarawak as its destination but will further expand to destinations in East Kalimantan, Sabah as well as Brunei.


  
Nestled in the heart of Borneo's world renowned and oldest tropical rainforests, Ba’Kelalan is blessed with sub-tropical all day cool and amazingly fresh weather. The Lun Bawang tribes that inhabit the area are likewise unique in their culture and traditions. It is a land of the friendly smiles from the young and the old. Ba’Kelalan is reachable either by Maswings Twin Otter on regular weekly flights OR by driving on 4WD through a timber road. This is one of the most beautiful place, peaceful with all its hidden treasures.
