Borneo

The rainforest of Borneo is 130 million years old, making it the oldest in the world. It is also disappearing faster than any rainforest on earth, so it's at the very top of our "see it while you can" list. Borneo is the center of evolution for many rare and endemic species, and one of the only remaining natural habitats for endangered orangutans, proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants and Sumatran rhinoceros. Like the Galapagos, many species on Borneo evolved in unique ways. A prime example of this is Borneo's incredible "gliders" - a group of mammals, reptiles and amphibians that have evolved to "fly" amongst the ancient trees.

The Ultimate "Weird and Wonderful Wildlife" Safari

Our Weird & Wonderful Wildlife program starts with a visit to an Orangutan sanctuary, and includes the best opportunities available in Borneo to track these most human of all primates in the wild throughout the trip. A combination of rainforest hiking and eco-responsible river cruises in electric boats allows you to get up close to the Orangutans, and also offer prime sightings of many of Borneo's most exciting wildlife, including Bornean gibbons, pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, bearded pigs, clouded leopards, marble cats and more.

Special expeditions - a signature of Wild Planet Adventures - include excursions to see Borneo's famous flying lemurs, gliding frogs and lizards, and nocturnal hikes to see slow loris and tarsiers, two of the world's smallest - and cutest - primates. Relax on a tropical island bungalow in the turquoise-blue waters of the Celebes Sea - one of the top 5 dive & snorkel sites in the world - at the end of your trip. No other Borneo itinerary offers more wildlife or more natural wonder!
