If you’re looking for a rainforest adventure with exotic wildlife and incredible natural landscape then this is the trip for you. Borneo is renowned for its wonderful unspoilt rainforest, and of course, the famous orangutans. Combine this with adventures in giant limestone caves, followed by a week relaxing on a tropical beach and you’ve got a holiday of a lifetime!

UK – Kuala Lumpur/Singapore: Your holiday will start with a direct flight from your chosen UK airport to either Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. If you would like to, you can stay a couple of nights to explore the city first before taking a flight on to Kuching. Both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore have so much to see and do; there are temples, skyscrapers and night markets – and not forgetting the fantastic local cuisine to enjoy!

Kuala Lumpur – Kuching: We will then fly you on to Kuching on Malaysian Borneo, from here you can choose to either stay in the state capital of Kuching or in the Permai Rainforest for four nights. Staying in colourful Kuching means that you can visit the orangutan sanctuaries on day trips to the rainforest as well as explore the city’s colonial roots, temples and museums. Or if you prefer, you can stay in the heart of the jungle at the Permai Rainforest eco resort. There are endless exciting activities to take part in; take a guided trek through the jungle to have your eyes opened to the tropical flora and fauna, catch a glimpse of an orangutan swinging through the jungle canopy, visit the hospitable indigenous people in their longhouse communities or even spot an Irrawaddy dolphin in the South China Sea.

Kuching – Gunung Mulu: You will then take a short flight on to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Gunung Mulu National Park close to the Malaysian / Brunei border. With three nights here you will have time to explore the park famous for its spectacular limestone caves and karsts. With boat trips down rivers and treks across bamboo bridges and along plank walkways, reaching the magnificent caves is a jungle adventure in itself. Inside each cave is different; some with clear water and others with giant stalagmites and stalactites and, without a doubt these are some of the most incredible caves in the world.

Gunung Mulu – Kota Kinabalu: Flying onto Kota Kinabalu, further east in Borneo, you will then have seven nights staying on the white powder-soft sandy shores of the stunning South China Sea. Here you can enjoy a week of wonderful beach relaxation before flying back to the UK, either via Singapore or Kuala Lumpur.
