Specifically for 18-29 year olds, Intrepid’s Real Borneo experience immerses you in a wildlife-rich but little-visited region of Sabah. It’s truly a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of jungle hikes, river cruises and sea snorkelling activities to keep you busy. Each action-packed day will introduce you to an array of Borneo’s incredible wildlife, from spotting pygmy elephants and proboscis monkeys on the banks of the Kinabatangan River, to swimming alongside sea turtles around Pandan Pandan Island. You’ll also visit conservation and rehabilitation centres for sun bears and orangutans, learning the vital work they do to rescue, nurture, and reintroduce these extraordinary mammals into their natural environment. What’s more, you’ll also get to mingle with locals and gain an understanding of the important Indigenous cultures of the region.
