Experience Travel Group says
Its pristine white sand beaches are some of the most appealing in all of Asia. However, Borneo is so much more than a “fly and flop” destination. In addition to a superb coastline, it also boasts lush tropical jungles, a fascinating cultural heritage, engaging wildlife experiences and exciting adventure activities.
Whilst our knowledgeable team here in the UK travels there regularly, we have partnered with Borneo’s best local “fixers” – appointed by us because they are at the forefront of responsible travel and they provide exceptional guides including wildlife experts. They allow our clients to have access to places and experiences that other travel companies simply can’t provide.
Each of our holidays is tailor-made to match your personal wish-list, but to give you an idea of the sort of itineraries we offer, here are some examples.
Ultimate Borneo includes time in Sarawak and Sabah and is the perfect choice if you want to get under the skin of Borneo and enjoy getting up close and personal with its wildlife.
Our Off The Beaten Track in Borneo trip will take you deep into the most remote region of Sabah, homeland to the indigenous Murat people, where you’ll see the remarkable Batu Punggul.
We offer a highly curated range of accommodation options from luxury resorts to tribal homesteads. We will discuss with you which might work best for your tastes, budget and itinerary. We often have special offers at the popular Gaya Island Resort, for example, and we highly recommend The Marian in Kuching.
Borneo offers a wealth of unique experiences and adventurous activities – to give you a taste of what we can arrange for you, discover more about white-water rafting or trekking, a boat trip for the chance to see pygmy elephants or explore unique cave systems.
