This exciting safari delves into the vibrant depths of Borneo, seeking out its most unusual and wild inhabitants, and exploring some of the most amazing vistas. Starting off by visiting endangered animal sanctuaries, your journey only gets more exciting as you move on to the Kinabatangan River. Here you can spot everything from wild orangutans and proboscis monkeys, to pygmy elephants, tree snakes and civets. From here you head to the wilds of the Tabin Wildlife Reserve and Danum Valley – home to some of the oldest jungle in the world – before finishing your trip on the idyllic Gaya Island, where you can dive beneath the waves on the search for marine life or simply kick back on the sand.
