Search for a huge variety of charismatic species, including orangutans, Bornean pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, clouded leopards, great argus pheasants, eight species of hornbills, and the bizarre Bornean bristlehead on this classic expedition led by naturalists Michael Moore and Rich Pagen.
Borneo, a rugged island in Southeast Asia’s Malay Archipelago which lies across the equator in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, is truly an animal-lover’s paradise. It is best known for its beaches and biodiverse rainforest, which is home to a variety of wildlife including orangutans, elephants, clouded leopards, and proboscis monkeys, as well as numerous bird species and fish. Meet the “man of the forest”—the orangutan—at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center, and search for wildlife while floating down the river at the Lower Kinabtangan River Sanctuary. Explore the equatorial rainforest of Danum Valley and hear the laughter of the helmeted hornbill or see a mouse deer scamper silently through the leaves.
