13 DAYS/14 NIGHTS
On this all-encompassing tour you can work towards the conservation of orangutans and experience traditional tribal life, all whilst exploring the riches of the Bornean rainforest.
On this orangutan tour, you will take unforgettable jungle treks through Borneo's rainforests and get the chance to experience the beauty of orangutans in the wild.
This tour also features two visits to the region's orangutan centres – the award winning Matang Wildlife Centre and the Semenggoh Nature Reserve, as well as three breath-taking national parks – Bako, Kubah and Batang Ai. Both Bornean orangutan sanctuaries and all three national parks are managed by the Sarawak Forestry Corporation, who play an active role in the ongoing conservation of the area's orangutans.
This incredible tour is designed to raise awareness of the conservation efforts made in Sarawak and to restore the harmony between people and orangutans that has become strained in recent years.
Embark on a voyage of discovery for all of the travellers whom take part, giving them access to the rehabilitation efforts at Matang Wildlife Centre, the released, semi-wild orangutans of Semenggoh Nature Reserve, the seven different habitats of Borneo in the amazing Bako National Park and a one week trip into the rainforest.
This tour will also involve meeting the descendants of the legendary Borneo head-hunters – the Iban tribe – who are now the custodians of the wild orangutans of Batang Ai.
This will be an experience you certainly won't forget in a hurry!
This is the perfect opportunity for anyone who has always wanted to see orangutans, go in search of them in the wild and aid their conservation.
***Please note this tour is not escorted by Borneo Ethical Adventures guides. You will volunteer and travel with local guides and volunteers selected by Project Orangutan
