Borneo beach


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.
