Our Favourite Itineraries
In our Client's Words...
The support in the planning was incredible - always available for phone calls and emails - and with their own experience of the country it was so much more helpful. The internal transfers were slick and we felt so well looked after whilst we were in Borneo. Bushbaby listen to you and have the experience and patience to create a holiday that won't disappoint. I can't thank them enough, teenagers are hard to please and family time is precious, they have created memories that will last forever.

The Malaysian peninsula is home to the ever-expanding metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, misty tea plantations and idyllic beaches that seem to have been made for relaxation.
Just off the northern tip of the peninsula, with Sumatra to the west and Thailand close by to the north, Langkawi is a gentle tropical island paradise surrounded by an emerald sea. A mixture of picturesque paddy fields, sheer craggy limestone mountains, impenetrable jungle and mangrove swamps, it boasts the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, Asia’s first Unesco Geopark.
Dominated by towering Mount Kinabulu, Malaysian Borneo hosts wild jungles of orangutans and jagged granite peaks. Its remote tribes go about their lives much as they have always done, in sync with their pristine surroundings.

When to go
Malaysia has a classic equatorial climate with high temperatures and rainfall throughout the year. Temperatures at sea level are generally in the late 20s, whilst at higher elevations, it is much cooler. The wet season in the west generally runs from April-October and brings thunderstorms in the afternoons, which are usually brief and help clear the humidity. The east coast, however, tends to have a heavier wet season and is best avoided during the rainy period of November-February.
Flights: Malaysian Airlines offer direct flights to Kuala Lumpur, taking approximately 13 hours, with other airlines also flying non-direct.
Typical carbon emissions for a return flight (Economy) per person: 760 kg.
