On our tour of Malaysian Borneo venture into some of the world's oldest rainforests, teeming with a wild array of exotic flora and fauna as well as canopy walkways and mysterious cave systems. One of the largest islands in the world, Borneo offers a fantastic combination of nature, culture and beaches.

After exploring the Kinabatangan River to spot wildlife, travel to Kota Kinabalu, one of the most unique and biologically diverse areas in the world, where there is the opportunity to trek inside Kinabalu National Park before you travel back home.
