Last Call: Borneo Birding and Wildlife Tour

Last Call for Borneo: The window of opportunity to sign up for the Borneo tour will be ending in a few weeks, so now is the time to sign up!

We are offering a very special trip to Sarawak, Borneo and this is definitely a trip of a lifetime! On this trip we will be traveling via boat and boots deep into the Borneo jungle to see and experience pristine rainforest habitat abundant with flora and fauna. Borneo is one of the last areas that is home to wild orangutans. This trip will be an adventure and all participants need to be in good hiking shape. The trails are slippery, muddy, rocky and we will be crossing and traveling through numerous creeks and rivers. There are plenty of insects, including leaches and so everyone will need to be prepared to handle this true adventure. During days of travel from one camp to another, you will need to be able to carry your basic gear in a backpack. This trip will make you feel like a real explorer and we are only taking four people for this very special trip!

The island of Borneo is about the size of Texas. The island is home to three separate countries: Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. Sarawak is located on the northern part of Borneo and is a state of Malaysia. Sarawak is rich in tropical rainforest, mountains and stunning coastal areas. Sarawak is lightly larger than the state of Florida and maintains 30 national Parks to protect distinct habitats and life zones for 185 species of mammals, 530 species of birds, 166 species of snakes, 104 species of lizards, and 113 species of amphibians including coral reefs and marine life. Sarawak in an excellent place to view Orangutans in the wild and the Rhinoceros Hornbill is the national bird. There will be time for cultural activities and we will be visiting three main National Parks: Santubong National Park, Batang Ai National Park, Kubah National Park and many other reserves and wetlands for birds and wildlife viewing. Our bird and wildlife tour, led by experienced and knowledgeable local guides, starts in the city of Kuching, where we will visit beautiful wetlands full of birds and wildlife.  

Special offer:   Included with your trip (one per room) is a copy of the field guide “Birds of Borneo: Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak, and Kalimantan” (Princeton Field Guides) by Susan Myers. You will receive this when you reserve your trip so you will have time to study and know the beautiful birds of Sarawak. 
The guides and trackers on this trip will be from local communities including the Iban Tribe. On this trip you will get to know the history and culture of the Iban people and learn how to travel through the rainforest wilderness.
