The Island Paradise of Borneo
In February of 2018, Wild Wonders led a small group of animal lovers into Borneo for a two week trip into the beauty and tranquility of the rainforest.
Below, you’ll find photographs from each of our destinations.
Our first stop was at Sepilok. It is home to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre as well as Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre and we spent a day at each. These two facilities are on front lines to save both of these endangered species from extinction.
The group’s accommodations were at the Sukau Rainforest Lodge, reachable only by boat. This location, which is designated by National Geographic as one of the “Unique Lodges of the World”, provided a peaceful and luxurious base from which we ventured out to see some of the many rainforest residents.
The photo below shows just a few of the Primates we saw: a Proboscis monkey, a macaque, and an orangutan.
Borneo Rainforest Lodge
The Borneo Rainforest Lodge is located in Danum Valley – a true biological hotspot. The lush jungle is home to diverse species from the smallest insects to pygmy elephants and spectacular hornbills. Here we enjoyed canopy walks and night walks.
This beautiful resort is located between rainforests and the China Sea. It was the last stop of our adventure, and afforded great rest and relaxation after our jungle treks. The over the water bungalows were a real treat, and the local waters provided great snorkeling and diving.
Below you can see some of the many inquisitive macaques, a Bornean bearded pig, and some of the sea life.
Here are some comments from people on the tour:
