A Thrilling Adventure

Borneo Adventure Travel – this is Borneo luxury at its best. Join Ker & Downey on a thrilling nine-day journey by private helicopter, over — and into — wild Borneo’s jungles and beaches. One island encompassing three countries, luxury travel to Borneo is a tropical paradise for the adventurous soul. You will find encounters with orangutans, traditional tribes, and stunning natural beauty during your private helicopter tour.

This luxury adventure through Malaysia Borneo features exclusive rainforest lodges and secluded beach resorts, all accessed by private helicopter. Our Borneo adventure tours begin in Sandakan at Sepilok Forest Eco Resort. From there you'll have easy access to the Rainforest Discovery Center and the 82-foot high canopy walkway that gives you eye-level views of the rainforest and the giant red flying squirrels that live there. The next day, visit the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center and Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, two organizations working to rehabilitate two of the country's most loved creatures. 

Continue on your journey to Sukau Rainforest Lodge along the Kinabatangan River, named one of the world's most unique lodges by National Geographic. Later that afternoon, take a river cruise in search of orangutans in their natural environment, as well as other wildlife such as the Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Bearded Pig, and Proboscis Monkey.

Your luxury Borneo adventure travel continues as your chopper carries you to the Danum Valley, a conservation area occupying 43,800 hectares of pristine and undisturbed jungle. After settling into your lavish riverside accommodations at the eco-friendly Borneo Rainforest Lodge, set out on a nature walk and a private night safari to gain a deeper understanding of one of the oldest virgin rainforests in the world. You will also have the opportunity to climb one of the earth's tallest tropical trees, assisted by a professional team.

Next, board your helicopter and retreat to Bungaraya Island Resort, located on the hillsides of Polish Bay on Gaya Island. The area is yours to explore with sea kayaks, stand up paddleboards, or snorkels. On your last evening, set out on a sunset cruise through the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, stopping along the way for diving and snorkeling.
