If you want to immerse yourself in Borneo's incredible wildlife and beaches but don’t fancy too much road travel or rushing around, then a holiday like this one could be ideal.
This suggested itinerary takes in Sepilok, the Kinabatangan River and Danum Valley. With astonishing biodiversity, these are the best places to see most of Borneo’s native species, including the iconic orangutan, pygmy elephants and many lesser-known exotic creatures.

After exploring the jungle, you’ll head to Gaya Island where you can enjoy five days in idyllic surroundings at the beach. Here you have the chance to relax, explore jungle trails or swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters inhabited by a wealth of marine life.
