International Traveller: Borneo’s wildlife – up close and personal

Sink into the spirit of Asia’s largest island, Borneo; the perfect place for nature lovers to get up-close and personal with the rainforest locals.

Asia’s largest island is a veritable technicolour playground for nature lovers.

Home to around six per cent of the world’s biodiversity, Borneo is bursting with beautiful wildlife that will take your breath away – regardless of your activity levels.

Adventure buffs can get their thrills at the World Heritage-listed Kinabalu Park (think trekking, rock climbing and paragliding), while the less agile can simply admire the dramatic peak of Mt Kinabalu.

Animal lovers will delight in meeting orphaned orang-utans during feeding time at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where you can’t help but feel intimately connected to these magnificent creatures.

Sukau Rainforest Lodge, nestled on the Kinabatangan River, is the perfect place to sink into the spirit of Borneo.
