Fantastic - the wildlife was amazing; watching elephants bathing in the river, snorkelling with turtles, scuba diving with sharks (small ones thankfully!), and the odd orangtan and probocis monkey! The people were extremely friendly and proud of their country. (more)Anna Davies

Borneo tour, Great Apes and Beach escapes
From
£1,535
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were too many memorable moments to pick just one. Watching the wild Orang Utans high in the trees, walking along the gangway following a juvenile Orang Utan in the Sepilok santuary, the orchids, Lankayan, watching the turtles and releasing the hatchlings, swimming with reef sharks and more. Tips? On the return trip we had a half day stopover at the lodges at Sandakan. A short taxi fare gives you a few more hours at the Orang Utan santuary, well worth it. Local... (more)Tony Warren

From
£1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were many exciting wildlife sightings but the most memorable part of the holiday was being with Mark, the project leader, who was highly knowledgeable about the natural world as well as organising a varied and interesting programme. Tips? To be prepared to engage fully with all the activities arranged. A pair of binoculars would also be helpful Local benefits? It definitely supported conservation and maybe made the village more aware of the importance... (more)Tessa Milne-Day

From
£2,535
including UK flights
It was an amazing wildlife adventure - I feel very fortunate to have seen freshly hatched baby green turtles and wild orangutans. (more)Claire Onody
There were many memorable moments. Too few to fully list out! One destination was the Gomantong Birdnest Caves. The main cave tests all your senses. Certainly a location for the next Indiana Jones film, not for flip-flop wearing tourists! (more)Jonathan Reed-Lethbridge
Indonesia holidays, tailor made, Orangutans & Komodo dragons
From
£3,785
including UK flights
Fantastic! It was incredible to have everything pre-arranged and all the logistics sorted out for us, so relaxing and just what we needed after a hectic wedding! Most memorable was staying with the Iban tribe and seeing the orangutans in Sarawak, and Borobudur at sunset in Java. (more)Portia Lloyd
Really brilliant - it was our honeymoon and we really had a fabulous time. It was so well organised by the operator which took a lot of the stress out of travelling which was exactly what we needed with such a complicated itinerary. The hotels we stayed in were second to none - really fabulous and we were spoilt rotten! (more)Erin Bunting
Seeing the orang-utans at Tanjung Puting National Park was the highlight, followed closely by the couple of days spent on board the boat to Komodo Island. The orang-utans were a joy to watch and we felt privileged to see these animals in their natural habitat. (more)Kathryn White

10 out of 10...the most memorable moment was seeing the Pygmy elephants on the banks of the Kinabatangan river playing, tugging up plants and placing them on their head. (more)Gill Bowles
We really enjoyed it and it lived up to expectations. (more)Steve Jameson
The most memorable part of the holiday was 100 pygmy elephants on the bank of the Kinabatangan River...Brilliant. Would do it again, and spend more time in each place. (more)Katie Southgate

(more)Chris Turner
Seeing animals in their natural environment and seeing an orangutan in the wild so close for the first time....Don't hesitate GO. (more)Yvonne Jones
It was all amazing but the highlight was staying at Rain Forest lodge in the Danum valley... it was a magical place in a superb location. Be prepared to be walking in extremely hot & humid environments, it is quite challenging at times but well worth it. (more)Jennifer Hares

From

excluding flights
Unbelievable, fantastic, amazing etc. EVERY day was perfect. It was our honeymoon and so many little touches and extra effort was made for us. It really was magical. Thank you. (more)Ross Smith
The climb up Mount Kinabalu probably stands out as the best bit. An incredibly tough assent followed by a somewhat painful descent but what a sense of achievement and sat at the summit watching the sunrise having made the climb took away what little breath we had left! (more)Alexandra Glenn
Lots of it was exciting but seeing the Orangutans in the wild has to be the best bit. (more)Phil Pinchen

From
£760
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Defiantly my most memorable part was the interaction with the local people, especially the kidís classes. The animals were great, however itís the people that made it special. Tips? If you enjoy a beer after a hard day's work, make sure you organize in advance! You can get beer but itís in town and about a 15min drive, so suggest being organized. Local benefits? I defiantly feel that we made great progress with the local people. We are still in regular contact... (more)Lauchlan Leishman

It was a fantastic holiday and I felt that we were away for much longer than we actually were. We got to visit amazing places and it felt like an adventure but at all times it was stress-free and safe (which really helps when travelling with young children). (more)Emma Beeston

Borneo family holiday, wildlife and beaches
From
£1,850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Staying at the Kinabatangan River - the wildlife was amazing and the people were wonderful, so friendly and welcoming. We saw several different types of monkeys and birds, pygmy elephants and crocodiles and the kids loved it. Tips? I wouldn't necessarily recommend staying in the longhouse at this stage, we didn't feel it was very authentic. We would highly recommend hiring an English speaking guide. It really helped us to identify the different wildlife, he took... (more)Lucinda Townsley

Memorable parts? Early morning river boat experience viewing 100+ pygmy elephants (with their calves) swim across the river roughly 50 m in front of us. Closely followed by close-up view (from the boat) of salt -water crocodiles -they are very fast! Tips? Do not over-pack on the luggage. It's hot & humid (but bearable) and opportunities to wash clothes during the trip. Make sure you have a good torch (& spare batteries) with you. Must be reasonably fit (and plenty stamina)to get the... (more)Alastair Neilson
