WHO ARE WE?

Join us for meaningful adventures in Malaysian Borneo!

WHY TRAVEL WITH US?

TAILOR-MADE TRIPS
Low-impact travel with us means smaller, more focused markets, including private departures for couples, family getaways, and small group requests. Itineraries based on your specific interests and travel style, our assigned travel consultants will build your itinerary start to finish to customize your ideal Borneo adventure.
NICHE TRAVEL
Looking to see Borneo’s endemic birds, or photograph the stunning wildlife in Malaysian Borneo’s conversation areas? Our team has the capacity to cover a wide range of special interests and build programs from birding to botany, and entomology to mammalogy. We know the best way to help you experience wild Borneo.
EXPERT KNOWLEDGE
Our team has traveled extensively throughout Borneo providing you knowledge based on personal experience. By exploring new areas we keep our adventures unique and fulfilling. Along with having fun, we strive to engage conscious travellers and offer educational ways to experience Borneo through our private network of conservation organizations.
RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL
We’re built on the philosophy of responsible tourism. We understand the delicate balance between tourism and conservation, and promote adventures that appeal to the socially conscious traveler. We engage in environmental conservation with local conservation groups, advocate for the preservation of local cultures, and partner with operators that have similar ethics and values to ensure that our adventures are meaningful and memorable.
GIVE BACK
Along with the classic Borneo trips, we also pledge to continuously promote community-based tourism initiatives that identify small-scale tourism as alternative livelihoods for rural or remote communities. We provide travellers with an intimate way to experience Borneo - not just seeing the sights, but getting a taste of the local culture.
