We have done several tours with Borneo Adventure during our stay in Kuching. They have all been fantastic and run like clockwork.
The guides are fantastic, brilliant English and so knowledgeable about their country, it’s history, wildlife and environment.
Our trips included overnight in Bako National Park, frogging at Kubah national park and Orangutans at the rehabilitation centre.
All tours included pick up from hotels with safe drivers, clean and air conditioned mini buses.

Borneo Adventure Organised 3 tours for me, all via email before I travelled to Borneo. I gave them dates and rough locations and they booked 3 tours for me - all of which were excellent. In Sabah I went to Sepilok, spent a couple of days on the Kinabatgan river and then went to Tabin. This covered about 6 days. In Sarawak they organised a 3 night tour to Lubok Kasai. This tour is not for the faint-hearted as I spent 2 nights in the middle of the rainforest with no electricity and no internet. It was great!
The guides on all the events were very friendly, well-organised and informative.
A big thank you to Susan who organised this form me based on a request of "I know nothing about the country, please organise something for me"!

Susan from Borneo Adventure booked our tour. She gave accurate information and all logistics were well organized. We booked private transport and guide, would recommend this option if you have kids. Driver, Arwan (sp ?) spotted 2 orangutans on our 2.5hrs drive from Lahad Datu airport. Also saw red leaf monkey, serpent eagle and monkey tailed macaques.
At Borneo Rainforest Lodge felt like glamping: comfortable beds, fan and A/C, decent food and fabulous guide, Farah. We spotted gibbons, orangutans, long tailed macaques, civets, snake, mouse deers, flying squirrels and tons of birds and insects.
Teenager enjoyed tubing down the river and swimming in waterfall with nibbling fish. Hubby enjoyed longer hike up to great lookout with view of primary rainforest. Apes were my highlight.
Felt a bit overpriced for the few fleeting glimpses of the apes, but still happy with our trip. Truly once in a lifetime moment to see completely wild orangutans.

We spent a fantastic three days at Tanjung Datu National Park, and loved every minute. Good forest on a beautiful beach, we watched turtles lay eggs in the sand, and got to release baby turtles via the conservation rangers there. Our excellent guide Karjan took us through the forest and was full of knowledge re the plants and animals of his home world. I would recommend this trip to anyone with a few days while in Kuching. And go during the week- we had the whole park to ourselves!

I can highly recommend Borneo Adventures to anyone. Disney was very helpful in making our booking and Teddy our guide went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day. Teddy is extremely knowledgeable and without him we would not have come away with the understanding of the history and culture that we did. What we gained from our tour set is up to learn even more as our holiday continued. We will definitely book another tour on our next visit. This tour took us to see the Orangutan’s and to the Annah Rais Longhouse in Kuching.

2 days 1 night tour. Great organisation from booking to finish. Agnes was brilliant with arranging and then when we arrived in Sandakan everything went smoothly and far surpassed expectation. Great to see the orangutuans and sunbears in the sanctuary. The Riverside Lodge overnight stop was amazing…especially the river cruises-guide was great and we saw loads of wildlife in their own habitat including proboscis monkeys and a 4m long crocodile !!!
Thank you to all the team at Borneo Adventure. Brilliant

We did two trips with Borneo Adventure while we were away, both were amazing ( Mulu Showcaves 2D1N and Tanjung Datu 3D2N) and highly recommended. The caves and wildlife at Mulu were amazing and our guide Nelson was really great and really knowledgeable.

Tanjung Datu is just a special place. Again our guide Lemon was amazing who our made the trip with his cooking, knowledge and conversation. We would use them again 100%.

Disney the coordinator was very responsible. Freda the guide was amazingly enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had such a wonderful time in Bako. It’s very worth it to stay for 1 night to go on the night hike.

We went with another couple on a 5 day guided tour to watch for Orangutans. Our Guide Edgar was very resourceful and knew his way around the reinforrest. Told us lots about animals and plants there. We even got to see Orangutans on 3 out of 5 days. The lodge is very beautiful. The Camp provides basic shelter. Und you are always provided with plenty enough and very good food and drinking water.
