Travel by plane, boat, local bus and on foot to experience a family adventure holiday in Borneo. You will spend 11 days seeing the sights, exploring the jungle, snorkelling the tropical waters and relaxing on the beach. But what Borneo is most well-known for is its wildlife, making it a fantastic holiday destination to see orangutans in a rehabilitation centre and visit a money sanctuary, giving you and the kids the opportunity to learn and understand how these wonderful creatures exist on this tropical island through the various conservation projects.

This family adventure holiday is ideal for children from the age of 5 years and groups are never more than 16, and although some days include a fair amount of travelling, the excitement that awaits in each new location, the travel time will fly!
