Borneo, Malaysia

Borneo, the third largest island in the world, has become best known for its gentle orang-utans or 'man of the forest', but it's also home to the oldest undisturbed rainforest on the planet and some truly unique wildlife such as pygmy elephants and proboscis monkeys, even rhinos! It's not only the animal inhabitants of the dense jungle that is varied. The population of Sabah and Sarawak share 156 dialects and a wide range of religions and some villages follow the same way of life as they have for hundreds of years. We recommend heading to Gaya Island, off the shores of Kota Kinabalu, for a perfect beach finish to your adventure.
