For many people, the Southeast Asian island of Borneo is synonymous with adventure, exotic wildlife and indigenous culture—and rightly so. In this trip you will travel to Sarawak and Sabah, the two provinces that comprise the Malaysian side of this tropical island, and learn a few survival basics while staying in a jungle camp.
You'll also visit remote local villages and search for proboscis monkeys, macaques and lemurs in Bako National Park. Stop by an orangutan rehabilitation centre (Team Outpost did when we toured Malaysia; an incredible experience! See our July-August 2014 issue). And end your trip by relaxing on beautiful Beringgis Beach.
