2018..And that's a wrap

Our Borneo tours are growing with you...

A big thumbs up to everyone that chose to travel ethically and with purpose in 2018. It's been an honour and a privilege to help travellers connect, contribute and explore the wonders of Sarawak, Borneo.

Here's some of the highlights and fantastic travel memories on tour with Borneo Ethical Adventures travellers this year.




1. Clearwater Cave, Mulu World Heritage Area

I love the colours in this photo. It was just beginning to rain and sunlight filtering through the rainforest canopy was so wonderfully surreal.

2. Longboats of Mulu World Heritage Area, Sarawak Borneo

Another love..Mulu's cafe overlooks the longboats queuing for the morning passengers. It's not unusual to watch birds, butterflies and the tiny pigmy squirrel jumping across the branches in the foreground.

2. Paku Trail, Mulu World Heritage Area, Sarawak

Dwarfed by the buttress trees along the Paku River this easy, self-guided walk is a great start to the day and the rewards of a refreshing dip at Paku Waterfall make it all the more worthwhile.

3. Rajah Brookes Birdwing Butterfly, Sarawak, Borneo

A standout crowd pleaser in the jungles of Borneo. The brilliant iridescent green pattern is created by minute scales 20 x 250 microns..

4. Langur Monkeys, Bako National Park, Sarawak

A lucky day spotting the mother Langur and her juvenile at Bako National Park. The infant starts life with orange natal hair which changes to grey over the first 3 to 4 months of life.

5. Kuching Waterfront, Kuching, Sarawak

Kuching's waterfront has to be one of the most lay back, safe and relatively unpolluted riversides in all of Asia. Wander the cobblestone promenade at night to eat ice cream with the locals, listen to buskers and watch the light show on the new pedestrian bridge across the river.

6. Longboat Ride, Mentawai, Sarawak, Borneo

Exploring Borneo by longboat provides a chance to sit back and watch the jungle unfold around you. It's a chance to spot a Rhinoceros Hornbill, broadbills and the variety of butterfly and dragonfly species that cruise along side you as you journey into the heart of Borneo.
