The Best of Borneo Overview

Travel to the stunning island of Borneo and enjoy fantastic activities, breath-taking landscapes and amazing wildlife. On this family holiday, you'll enjoy snorkelling along coral reefs, mountain biking, jungle rafting, visiting wildlife sanctuaries and trekking through the jungle. All of the activities and internal flights are included.

Few places can compete with Borneo when it comes to adventures, activities, and wildlife. The Malaysian Sabah region is the base for our Activities Abroad family holiday adventure and the itinerary has been designed to ensure you see the very best that Borneo has to offer. All activities are included in the holiday price.

Your family adventure starts in and around Kota Kinabalu. Here you will enjoy taking a boat ride past tropical islands, snorkelling along coral reefs, flying on an inter-island zip wire, white-water rafting and jungle trekking, and sampling some wonderful accommodation and delicious food.

Next, it’s into the tropical rainforests for memorable encounters with some of the world’s most endangered species which are indigenous to Borneo’s rainforests. You’ll have the chance to get close to proboscis monkeys, sun bears, and orangutans at their respective sanctuaries before searching for them in the wild. There will be rainforest boat trips where you are almost certain to encounter some of the abundant wildlife, as well as a visit to the spectacular Gomantong Caves, famous as a nesting ground for swifts and some 27 species of bat.

Back in Kota Kinabalu, you’ll have the chance to scuba dive with our local experts and then go mountain biking prior to travelling home with some wonderful memories of your family tropical adventure.
