What to Expect on a Tailored Borneo Nature Tour??

Our bespoke Borneo nature tours ensure unique encounters with the wild—with the added assurance of eco-friendly, low-impact sightseeing and accommodation, from orangutan sanctuaries and forest reserves to green floating bungalows deep in the jungle. Learn and explore responsibly on your tailored Borneo nature tour with Backyard Travel.


Nature tours of Borneo wouldn’t be complete without morning hikes, afternoon cruises, and night safaris. If that’s not enough, go kayaking down jungle rivers or mountain biking on forest trails.


One of the most biodiverse spots in the world, Borneo bursts with animal and plant life: gibbons, macaques, hornbills, bearded pigs, and the brilliant red rafflesia, the world’s largest flower.


From impenetrable rainforests to the peak of Mount Kinabalu, from the sandy shores of the South China Sea to the yawning caverns of Deer Cave, the scenery provides the ideal setting for exploration.


Ecologically sensitive guides ensure you have a safe, enjoyable, low-impact holiday in the wilds of Borneo. Learn about the island’s flora and fauna from the pros working at the sanctuaries.


Meet the locals who make these wild lands their home. Work with communities that care for and preserve the region’s delicate ecosystems. Participate in a tree-planting project. Enjoy a homestay with a welcoming family.
