Overview

  • If Borneo is a nature lover’s dream (and it is), this fantastic six-day adventure is that dream come to life.
  • Beginning in the dazzling city of Kuching, you’ll venture deep into the wondrous Bako National Park — home to odd-looking proboscis monkeys and the carnivorous pitcher plant.
  • Next, it’s on to Batang Ai to spend the night in a fascinating Iban longhouse for an eye-opening glimpse into how Borneo's indigenous peoples live deep in the heart of the jungle.
  • Sarawak is an amazingly out-there place.
  • Come join us to discover how and why.

What to Take

You will be on the move a good deal, so pack as lightly as possible (under 10 kg/22lb). It is to your advantage as you are expected to carry your own luggage, though distances are never great. We do not allow the use of video cameras when staying in the villages as it can be perceived by the local people as highly obtrusive. Most travellers carry their luggage in a pack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice. Suitcases are not appropriate for this particular trip! You need to bring your main piece of luggage as well as a small to medium backpack for overnight trips (30-35 litres/8-9 gallons). In this you will need to carry a change of clothes, torch/flashlight, toiletries, warm clothes and any other essentials.
