Responsible tourism: Borneo nature tour, Brunei and Sabah


We promise to cultivate knowledge and love for the environment. Tours, stays and programs expose visitors to the rainforest, its flora and fauna. Guest will learn how locals utilize the rainforest as their supermarket. At Sumbiling Eco Village, we promise to preserve the surrounding by utilizing small, wooden basic structures, forbidding major construction designs and providing no air-conditioning or excessive comforts in setups near or in the rainforest. Our tour van operates on a non-diesel fuel.

Throughout the tour we operate on our 3 Rís. We ensure rubbish is sorted and eventual non-use of plastic bags/bottle. We aim to promote opting for natural alternatives such as rattan/bamboo instead of nylon/plastic. We also promote local handicrafts made out of rattan which can be used as bags and accessories. A huge portion of the proceeding will go to the local villages. Our office operates on a strict recycled paper only policy as most transactions are done via electronic.

A portion of the money spend for the tour packages will go directly into conservation funds such as BruWild, a dedicated NGO with the goal to protect the flora and fauna within Brunei and educate pupils and students about topics such as deforestation, global warming and environmental awareness.


Brunei is a country full of religious and cultural customs. The tour guide will brief visitors on these Islamic values especially during mosque visits. Visitors are required to cover up modestly and remove their shoes. There are also to respect people who are praying by not making irrelevant noises. During trips to the Water Village, we promise visitors are aware of local customs and traditions of visiting houses. The hotel is managed locally and employs vastly local people.
The Sumbiling Eco Village promises to build self-esteem of local community through their involvement and achievements. All the residents of the village are involved in decision making processes and they are the key player in operations. The village only employs local residents from tour guides, trail leaders to cooks. This builds pride in their indigenous culture & local way of life as they get to showcase the culture and heritage to the visitors.

The tour provider also promises to empower the people in the community by providing jobs and volunteering opportunities to locals with in-house training.
