A Holiday to Borneo promises world-famous wildlife, teeming jungles and exquisite beaches View All Borneo Holidays

Malaysian Borneo stretches out to cover the northern half of the world’s third-largest island, laying claim to dramatic coastlines and a vast expanse of thick virgin rainforest – some of the oldest rainforest in the world.

Our collection of Borneo experiences includes:

  • Group tours designed to get first-time visitors under the skin of the country,
  • Tailor-made itinerary suggestions which can be tweaked to suit your interests, and
  • Honeymoon ideas which combine once-in-a-lifetime wildlife interactions with relaxing breaks at private romantic beach resorts.

From trekking the muddy jungle trails of the remote Danum Valley Conservation Area to snorkelling the turquoise seas along the pristine white sand beaches of Gaya Island, Borneo holidays are an immersion in the beautiful natural environments which call the country home.


A vibrant cultural melting pot, Borneo is home to charismatic people with a unique blend of traditional native forest communities, romantic Asian roots and European Colonial ties.

Here, the irresistible lure of beaches and exotic jungle heaving with indigenous wildlife – including endangered orangutans – entices visitors from all corners of the globe.


If you are looking to visit Borneo to see Orangutans you are not alone. For many visitors, this is the number one reason for a holiday to Borneo.

These beautiful animals live freely in their natural habitat and are a protected species. And we hope that it will always be that way. There are a number of Borneo holidays that allow you to see the Orangutans first hand, sometimes at very close range, without disturbing their living environment.

We’re proud to work with Orangutan Appeal UK. This is a charity associated with Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre which rehabilitates and provides medical care to orphaned orangutans.

Active travellers shouldn’t miss the opportunity to climb Mount Kinabalu – it’s the perfect finale to an incredible holiday spent searching for wildlife in the jungles. Whilst it might not be a technically challenging climb, the route certainly offers a physical challenge. But then, standing at 4,000m to watch the sun rise over the ocean and gaze across the rainforest from above, it’s so worth it and an experience you’ll never forget.

Stefanie's Tips
In Kota Kinabalu jump on the North Borneo railway – a colonial-era steam train that chuggs through the countryside.
Take a trip down the Kinabatangan river on the look-out for proboscis monkeys, macaques, pygmy elephants, snakes and crocodiles.
Join the locals at the bustling “Top Spot” food hall in Kuching, where the seafood is plentiful, delicious and great value.
