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.
PlanetOn 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.
Trekking in primary jungle and cruise safari on river gives more chances to spot wildlife like Pygmy elephants, gibbons, Orang Utan, Clouded Leopard, Leaf Monkey. Proboscis Monkeys, Hornbills, Crocodile, Eagles and many more.

PeopleVolunteering 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.
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 support the community 100%
