Borneo is the world’s third largest island and conjures up images of a wild forest paradise where Orangutans, gibbons and colourful birds roam the Bornean jungle. On our Borneo photography tour, we will visit some of Borneo’s most famous wildlife sites including Sepilok, the Kinabatangan River, Tabin Wildlife Reserve and Danum Valley – the latter protecting a piece of one of the oldest and tallest tropical rainforests in the world!
A rich mix of highly sought-after mammals and birds can be expected on this trip, and we have designed this fabulous tour to maximize time in the best areas. Our main photographic targets will include Bornean Pygmy Elephant, Bornean Orangutan and several smaller species of primate including Proboscis Monkey, Red Leaf Monkey, Bornean Gibbon and the adorable Western Tarsier, Leopard Cat and various other predators, with a chance even for the gorgeous Sunda Clouded Leopard, and rainforest birds.
