Borneo’s rainforests have a biodiversity to rival the Amazon and Madagascar and, combined with the sheer density of animals and birds, puts it on a par with the great African savannahs of the Serengeti and Masai Mara for viewing wildlife.
Orangutans are the star attraction but there is also an abundance of other wildlife for visitors to enjoy, Borneo gibbons in Danum Valley, macaques in Bako National Park, turtles off of Sandakan, pygmy elephants on the Kinabatangan River..... the list goes on and on.
The relaxed but refined capital of Kuching has a rich cultural heart, attractive colonial buildings and a popular waterfront, all combining to create a tranquil and easy going ambience that makes the city a great place to spend a few days.
Mount Kinabalu National Park offers a host of scenic walking trails, a dazzling array of flora and fauna and a host of natural attractions that includes waterfalls and hot springs. 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!
