A haven of biodiversity in Southeast Asia

See intelligent orangutans, adorable pygmy elephants and hundreds of brightly coloured, fascinating bird species on this densely forested island.

For wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers, Borneo is a dream destination. This lush island, shared by Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei, is a haven of biodiversity and unique animal encounters. A wildlife holiday in Borneo promises an adventure like no other.

Borneo is renowned for its orangutan population. The island is one of the last strongholds for these magnificent creatures. Visiting orangutan sanctuaries like Sepilok allows you to observe these gentle giants up close and learn about their conservation.

The proboscis monkeys, with their comical, long-nosed appearance, are another highlight of Borneo's wildlife. You can spot these unique primates along the riverbanks of Borneo's lush jungles.

Borneo is home to the Bornean pygmy elephant, the smallest elephant species in the world. Take a river safari along the Kinabatangan River to observe these gentle giants in their natural habitat.

Borneo boasts over 600 bird species, making it a paradise for birdwatchers. Look out for the rhinoceros hornbill, blue-headed pitta, and other colourful avian species as you explore the rainforests.

If you're interested in marine life, Borneo offers a chance to witness sea turtles nesting and hatching. Sipadan Island, a world-renowned diving spot, is home to various species of sea turtles.

Borneo's dense rainforests offer endless opportunities for exploration. Trek through the Danum Valley Conservation Area, traverse canopy walkways, and experience the thrill of discovering hidden waterfalls.

Borneo is a focal point for wildlife conservation, with numerous organizations dedicated to preserving its unique ecosystems. Your visit can contribute to these efforts and support the protection of Borneo's remarkable wildlife.
