Our style of travel is all about seeing the authentic side of the destinations we sell. While exploring Borneo why not take the time to learn the traditions of the Iban tribe during our Batang Ai National Park trip. You’ll spend the night in a rustic jungle lodge, while spending the day getting an insight into the culture of the tribe which dates back centuries.
Wherever possible we try to use small-scale, locally run accommodation in Borneo to make your trip even more unique and full of local flavour. Whether it is city hotels or remote jungle lodges we want to support local people and their communities during our trips.
Our Local Project in Borneo
In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Borneo we have chosen the Borneo organisation – Reef Guardian, who help to preserve the beautiful and endangered marine life off the east coast of Sabah and ensure the safe return to the sea for the newborn turtles.
Our Local Partner in Borneo
In Borneo we work alongside a local partner who shares our values and passion for meaningful travel. They work closely with our Borneo Product Manager to discover new and enriching experiences that benefit the local population. We use local guides and drivers so you benefit from their knowledge and expertise and the communities benefit from tourism.
Our Borneo Travel Specialists
Our specialists love Borneo and they want to share their passion and knowledge with you. From personal experience they can help you plan and book your Borneo adventure and advise where you can give back to the local communities you will be staying in. They’re full of top tips, favourite places and plenty of advice which they love to share with anyone who’ll listen.
