Travel in a small group of up to 15 like-minded people on a Borneo Rainforest Adventure to search for wildlife and discover rare flora and fauna. This Saga active explorer holiday is specially designed to appeal to animal lovers with a taste for adventure.

No visit to Borneo would be complete without seeing the orang-utans and Saga guests will be able to visit the Sepilok Orang-utan centre, in Sandakan, which returns orphaned orang-utans to the wild.

There will also be a trip to a sun bear conservation centre and a bird-watching boat ride on the Kinabatangan River.

Discovery Centre before taking to the rainforest canopy walkway and visiting the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.
En route to Kinabatangan, there will be a stop at the Gomantong Caves where edible birds’ nests are collected by local people. Spend two nights’ full-board at the Proboscis Lodge Bukit Melapi (2Q) and listen to the unique sound of monkeys, tropical birds and insects in the rainforest.
