Start in Kuching and end in Sepilok, the Borneo Adventure trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 14 days. You will travel through Nanga Sumpa, Sungai Mawang, Sandakan and 5 other destinations in Malaysia. Borneo Adventure is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A real Borneo adventure. Trek rainforest and jungle trails in search of wildlife such as Orangutan, ascend limestone pinnacles and climb Mt Kinabalu. Sarawak and Sabah, located in the north of Malaysian Borneo, offer the ideal base for exploration of indigenous cultures, limestone formations, jungles, forests and an array of wildlife. Sarawak is home to amazing limestone caves, headhunter trails and the razor sharp Pinnacles. Sabah is covered in impenetrable tropical rainforest where the rafflesia – the world’s largest flowering plant, thrives together with an eclectic mix of other unusual plants. However, it is the wildlife for which Sabah is best known and we will wander trails through the forest reserves. Our adventure continues where we ascend high above the jungle canopy to the summit of Mount Kinabalu. It is unlikely that you could find a trip with more diversity and adventure.

“Daniel is an outstanding guide with an abundance of experience and knowledge of kayaking, the galaxy, history and sealife. He always went over and above our expectations with his superb cooking and little surprises . We could all see his passion and enjoyment, complimenting our enjoyment. The Yasawas is an extraordinary treasure of the pacific and I appreciated so much the opportunity to experience to kayak the ming blue waters, observe and swim with the prolific sea life, camp on the palm fringed beaches and meet the people who live there. Its a unique experience that will be treasured always. The great group of active individuals who participated in this adventure within this paradise made this trip unforgettable.”
