Brilliant Borneo holidays

All explorers need their down time. Combine inviting white beaches with jungle exploration on holidays in Borneo and make discoveries worth writing home about: from Sumatran rhinos to tiny tree frogs.

Book flights to Borneo to see its wild places – your world will be changed forever. In Kota Kinabalu venture to the peak of the highest mountain in Malaysia, or enjoy its surrounding botanic gardens. Soak up the mineral-rich Poring hot springs. Visit limestone caves where three million bats take part in an eerie display every night. Borneo’s special residents, its orangutans, proboscis monkeys and sun bears all have rehabilitation centres in Sepilok, a four-hour journey away. Here you have the best chance of interacting with endangered species.

Sandakan

Sandankan is a great base for seeing Borneo’s amazing animals. In the town of Sandankan itself you can visit a very prim and proper English tea house. Just an hour’s drive out of the city, people flock to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where orangutans are reintroduced to the wild.
