Borneo’S Rare Mammals

From: £Contact us

Visiting some of Borneo’s best mammal watching nature reserves and national parks, this small group tour provides opportunities to see a host of rare mammals including the elusive Sunda clouded leopard.

The itinerary begins in Sepilok where we have the opportunity to visit the world renowned orangutan rehabilitation centre before moving on to the Kinabatangan River. Here, we explore the river in search of proboscis monkeys, silvery langur, and, if we are lucky, Asian elephant.

We continue to Deramakot Forest Reserve for a seven night stay and with good reason – this is the best location for seeing many of Borneo's rarest mammals such as binturong, marbled cat, Sunda clouded leopard, slow loris and Malay sun bear. However, the highlight of Deramakot is to spot the Sunda clouded leopard – one of the world's rarest cats. Despite being elusive and endangered, these cats are seen regularly in this reserve.
