why travel solo to borneo?
Borneo. Your opportunity to get back to nature, channel your inner explorer and dive head-first into a vast and complex ecosystem.
Travel through Borneo and you’ll immediately feel a sense of adventure. Its impenetrable rainforest, rich in wildlife and flora, it’s winding rivers that hide giant crocodiles and feed colourful birds – everything about this island is geared towards exploration.
Orangutans are Borneo’s most recognised inhabitants – and the thrill of seeing one of these endangered creatures in the wild is hard to describe. There are pygmy elephants, too, kingfishers and vine snakes – all to be spotted from a river safari or an inland trek. Your adventure might also see you wild-swimming in waterfalls, cave exploring in the World Heritage Site of Gunung Mulu National Park and hopping over to Kota Kinabalu for a bit of R&R, South China Sea-side.
The best of Borneo? It’s not hard to find.
