Borneo – An adventurer’s paradise

2nd December 2009 Print

The Malaysian State of Sarawak on the island of Borneo is one of South East Asia's best-kept secrets and a true adventurer's paradise.

Trek through the lowland forest known as the Headhunters Trail, originally used by warriors to invade the Limbang region and look for the local wildlife in the Bako National Park after exploring some of the spectacular cave systems by longboat in Mulu and staying a night as guests of the Iban tribe.

Although once feared due to their practice of headhunting, the Iban people now live peacefully living off the land and are more likely to bring examples of modern living back from their travels rather than heads!

The nine day ‘Amazing Sarawak’ trip starts from £675 per person including eight nights accommodation (one night longhouse, one night jungle shelter, four nights hotel, two nights jungle lodge), most meals, internal transport (bus, longboat, domestic plane), and the services of an experienced tour leader. Flights are available on request.
