Holidays to Borneo promise incredible wildlife viewing, beautiful unspoilt beaches and a rich cultural heritage.
Borneo’s rainforests have a biodiversity to rival the Amazon and, combined with the sheer density of animals and birds, puts it on a par with the Masai Mara and Serengeti for viewing wildlife. Orangutans are the star attraction but there is also an abundance of other wildlife for visitors to enjoy; Borneo gibbons, turtles, pygmy elephants, Sumatran rhino, proboscis monkeys and hundreds of species of extravagantly coloured birdlife.
The beaches of Borneo are just magnificent, tranquil stretches of golden sands often backed by lush tropical vegetation and offering superb snorkelling opportunities. They are a great addition to any Borneo holiday or a perfect choice for a holiday in their own right.
Trailfinders helps thousands of people a year plan their holidays to Borneo. Our experienced, well-travelled consultants will help you choose how you’d like to get around, where you’d like to stay and how you’d like to experience the attractions and then put it all together for you seamlessly.

WHERE TO GO IN BORNEO
Borneo boasts a rich treasure trove of parks and reserves, each with its own particular attractions. Sepilok is famous for its Orangutans, Tabin its pygmy elephants and the Kinabatangan River its proboscis monkeys but each also hosts an astonishing variety of bird and wildlife besides. Your Trailfinders consultant will help you choose which to visit.
It’s not all just about the wildlife though. Kuching and Kota Kinabalu are fascinating cities with colourful histories and well worth a day or two’s exploration. Mount Kinabalu National Park offers a host of scenic walking trails and the chance to scale Malaysia’s highest peak. For a real taste of the unusual, venture deep into Borneo’s interior to see the Iban people; Sarawak’s largest ethnic tribe, once renowned as head hunters!
