Private Expedition: Borneo

Misty mountains and jungle-shrouded rivers, spectacular cave systems and rain forests teeming with rare species: few places on Earth offer such a bounty of natural wonders as Borneo. Uncover the rich biodiversity of Malaysian Borneo on a journey to the wild interiors of Sarawak and Sabah. Explore the world’s largest underground cave chamber in Gunung Mulu National Park, and meet members of the hunter-gatherer Penan people. Stay in jungle lodges nestled within wildlife reserves, surrounded by canopy walkways suspended through the treetops. Set out on day and night hikes and river safaris to search for orangutans, proboscis monkeys, leopard cats, and much more.
