Borneo is home to some of the most pristine and oldest rainforests on Earth with a vast array of plants and the world’s rarest and most impressive wildlife. It is a country steeped in culture with its many tribes and rich history.
Borneo is a fantastic destination to learn about conservation and environmental issues. The vast rainforests are teeming with exotic wildlife including proboscis monkeys, macaques, sun bears, pygmy elephants, and orangutans. Students can interact with orangutans at the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary which assists injured and orphaned orangutans to be rehabilitated in a natural habitat. A highlight is always a special visit to the Orangutan Nursery. Students will also visit the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, which manages and improves the living conditions of rescued sun bears.
Remote rivers and jungle trails cut paths through untouched and unspoiled wilderness, leading to peaceful villages where your students can have an immersive experience with vibrant indigenous cultures. With an unforgettable stay in a rainforest lodge, students will wake up to the sound of the jungle.
Students can connect with the poignant Australian war history and learn the stories of the heroic events of World War II, with a visit to the Sandakan Australian War memorial.
They can develop new skills and leadership qualities through teamwork and get involved in tree planting projects. With trekking challenges and rain forest treks, students will be immersed in the natural environments and eco systems and gain a deep appreciation for their surroundings and the natural beauty of Borneo.
