Home to some of the world’s richest ecosystems, the island of Borneo is split between three countries – Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.
Sabah and Sarawak are the two states that make up Malaysian Borneo and they are packed to bursting with culture, wildlife, jungle and beaches. As captivating a destination as Borneo is, it remains wonderfully off-the-beaten-track meaning that it has managed to remain relatively pristine.
You can enjoy the cosmopolitan charms of the cities of Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, relax on the softest white sand, explore easily accessible tracts of virgin rainforest, discover the world’s largest caves and meet the ‘old men of the forest’ – orangutans. On top of all this Borneo is home to half of all the known plant and animal species in the world and to a fascinating ancient tribal culture (Headhunters anyone?) that is still very much alive. For a truly memorable adventure, Borneo is the place to go!
