1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Seeing a large male Orangutan and watching him for an hour.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Avoid the Bungraya resort at the end, all the others were great but this
resort is full of scam and con.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Yes we benefited locals (except at Bungraya which is Dutch) and we supported conversation. The guides were very involved with conversation and we supported them directly.

Great. We loved the trip.

Many thanks for your review. We are delighted you had a fantastic holiday - it is an amazing country. Many thanks for your comments on Bungraya. I am going to private email you as we would like some further information . As you know Bungraya is the beach extension element and there are limited offerings with good snorkelling however we would not recommend them if there were problems.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
On this tour we support a number of wildlife sanctuaries. You will have the opportunity to visit the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, where orphaned and rescued Orangutans receive medical care and are reintroduced to 'wild' living as much as possible.
The brand new Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, takes care of the cutest bear in the world. Be part of this solution by adopting one of them as we did! Labuk Bay Proboscic monkeys Sanctuary 400 plus acres of mangrove forest initially bought for commercial development, but the plan was quickly dropped so that these monkeys could continue to survive there without fear of losing their natural habitat.
The accommodation that is provided in this tour is green and eco-friendly. Some use solar power as main energy resource and Eco-treatment for wasted water.
PeopleVOLUNTEERING & CHARITY
Volunteering and charity work is really important to us. We ensure to do both equally. We support a key volunteering project giving them visibility throughout our distribution channel and showing to people their ‘modus operandi’. Every year we support and visit an orphanage house where we ensure that we spend a lot of important time together playing with kids, donating. organizing and fundraising. This is something we make sure of doing each year - a promise to them.
A FAIR DEAL
We support the local community and notably the majority of our staff is made up of local people. Some examples: Barshall our operation manager comes from Iban tribe in Sarawak, as does Rosa our senior reservation. Venissa – reservation executive comes from Kadazan tribe in Telupid – Sabah Petronella- account is a Dusun and come from Tuaran town in Sabah, also Rex, Rijan, Charles, Zaedi are all Malaysian are all from different area of Malaysia and comes from different ethnic group. We see this as being very important as local knowledge is very important. We 100% support the community.
