Borneo’S Orangutans

From: £Contact us

Journey to Malaysian Borneo on this specially designed small group tour where we visit the best locations to encounter the magnificent orangutan in its natural habitat.

Closely related to humans, the remarkable Bornean orangutan is among the world's most endearing animals. They are highly endangered animals, but there are still locations where they can be sighted regularly in the wild and we visit the finest of these on this itinerary.

Among the best sites for tracking, watching and photographing wild Bornean orangutans, are Danum Valley and the Kinabatangan River. We spend plenty of time at both of these locations to observe wild individuals as well as an incredible array of other wildlife, much of it found nowhere else.

As an introduction to the remarkable Bornean orangutan, we begin our tour at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where hundreds of rescued apes have been helped return to life in the forest.
