This adventurous tour of Borneo's culture and wildlife includes a challenging 6-day expedition deep into Sarawak's interior to explore pristine rainforests and experience your tribal hosts' way of life. Starting in Kuching, visit the Semonggoh orangutan sanctuary and take in this historic riverside city. The expedition starts from the coastal town of Miri with a flight to the Long Lellang airstrip close to the border with Kalimantan, where you will spend the next 6 days with the semi-nomadic Penan tribe trekking in the rainforests and learning their forest skills. The second part of this tour is spent in Sabah, home to Borneo's highest concentration of wildlife, to explore waterways which attract orangutans, elephants, crocodiles, proboscis monkeys and a great variety of colourful and rare birds.
