Why Borneo

National Geographic and BBC documentaries have crammed the imagination of wildlife adventurers with iconic images of Borneo, particularly of the Sabah region – primordial jungles, heavy with heat and humidity, teeming with wildlife large and small. First and foremost among these is the orangutan – enigmatic primates whose intelligence, inquisitiveness and languid approach to life seem particular familiar.

But there are also the rather uniquely featured proboscis monkeys, as well as gibbons, macaques, sun bears, pygmy elephants, crocodiles, mouse deer, tarsiers, civets and even, if you are really lucky, clouded leopards! Plus a plethora of exotic birds, bejewelled snakes, colourful frogs and peculiar insects.

The rainforests of Sabah are some of the oldest virgin forests on the planet, with a towering canopy of old growth trees, soaring over a jungle of ferns and vines and foliage so lush it is almost impenetrable. Yet the wilderness here is home to some of the most luxurious jungle lodges in south-east Asia. And getting here, and exploring in style and comfort is unexpectedly easy to achieve for discerning adventure travellers.
