This amazing 10-day journey through the magnificent island of Borneo begins with snorkelling and beach activities on Manukan and Sapi Islands.  From here, it’s time to travel to the agricultural town of Papar, and be immersed within the local community. 

Staying with a local family, cooking and trying traditional foods, to tapping rubber, and going on a buffalo ride, this is an experience you’ll not forget.  Once you say goodbye to your ‘local family’, it’s off to learn how orang-utan’s are rehabilitated back into the wild.  From here you’ll experience wildlife river excursions in search of wildlife such as the proboscis monkeys, orangutans, langguars and the beautiful Borneo pygmy elephants.
