Run by: Selective Asia
Reference number: Borneo: Beyond The Ordinary
If you dream of adventure deep in Borneo’s legendary rainforest, Borneo: Beyond The Ordinary is for you.
After a couple of leisurely days in Kuching, the adventure begins! Heading deep into Sarawak’s wilderness you will spend three days enjoying the hospitality of the Iban ‘headhunters’, staying overnight in the longhouse, mingling with the community and learning about their traditional lifestyle.
Return to the (relative) bright lights of Kuching for a night, followed by a night in Kota Kinabalu, where we recommend you make the most of the hotel facilities, before four days exploring Sabah’s Lost World - the Maliau Basin. Facilities are basic and the trekking is challenging, but this is a once in a lifetime experience and the stuff that memories are made of.
The trip concludes at one of Kota Kinabalu’s beach resorts, where there is time to recuperate and reflect on your experiences.
