Experience Sarawak

If Borneo is a nature lover’s dream (and it is), this fantastic six-day adventure is that dream come to life. Beginning in the dazzling city of Kuching, you’ll venture deep into the wondrous Bako National Park — home to odd-looking proboscis monkeys and the carnivorous pitcher plant. Next, it’s on to Batang Ai to spend the night in a fascinating Iban longhouse for an eye-opening glimpse into how Borneo's indigenous peoples live deep in the heart of the jungle. Sarawak is an amazingly out-there place. Come join us to discover how and why.
