I fell in love with Borneo on my first adventure when I scaled the awe-inspiring Mount Kinabalu. I just had to go back and see more of this vast island! It’s got so much to offer from its delicious food, to its unique wildlife and jungle experiences, and not to mention its idyllic beaches.
Borneo is one of my absolute favourite places in the world, I love the relaxed pace of life in Sarawak and jungle adventures in Sabah, not to mention the best sunsets in the world! From the auburn-haired orangutans swinging through the rain-forest, the peaceful turtles laying their eggs on tranquil islands, to the clouds of bats hovering in the skies of Mulu – it’s a nature lover’s paradise.
I have always loved wildlife and to see any species in its natural habitat is something that I really get excited about. My time in Borneo was spent exploring the lush green jungle on the Kinabatangan River and visiting the orangutans at Sepilok Orangutan Reserve. It’s a trip that I’ll always remember and I’m just waiting for the chance to return!
