Meet the Orangutans
Borneo's most famous indigenous species

The intelligent and gentle fuzzy creature we know as orangutans are one of Borneo's most iconic sights and a popular draw-card for many visitors. Visiting Sabah you'll get the chance to come face-to-face with these loveable primates at the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Sepilok with a viewing gallery where you can watch them feast on milk and bananas during feeding time.

To start putting together your dream holiday to Borneo, consider focusing on these must-see destinations from wild national parks to charming cities and rugged mountain peaks.

The-Astana-in-Kuching-Borneo
Cat City

Kuching

With a distinct Chinese flavour, Kuching is arguably one of Borneo’s most sophisticated and indeed stylish cities. A tasteful blend of modern structures and classic old world charm is evident throughout with bustling streets, Chinese temples, a beautifully landscaped riverfront park as well as the kitschy cat statues that appear throughout the city – because Kuching actually means cat!

Bako-National-Park-Top-Spots-Borneo
Wonderful Wilderness

Bako National Park

The oldest national park in Sarawak, Bako National Park has a peninsula that is filled with beautiful inlet beaches, rugged cliffs and endless mangrove swamp. Inside the park you’ll be greeted with tranquil streams, thundering waterfalls and a fine range of ecosystems. The park is popular for hiking, picturesque boat rides, beach relaxing as well as fantastic wildlife spotting!

Borneo-orangutans
Orangutan heaven

Sepilok

Home to some great rainforest and the ever-popular Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, Sepilok is a firm favourite on travellers' itineraries. No trip to Borneo is complete without coming here to see the orang-utans in their natural habitat. Located on the edge of the reserve, it was opened in 1964 to help rescue sadly orphaned and abandoned younger orangutans and to help them learn to fend and look out for themselves.

Kinabalu National Park - Mount Kinabalu and landscape in Borneo - On the Go Tours
Mountain scenery

Kinabalu National Park

As Malaysia’s first ever UNESCO World Heritage Site, no-one should turn down a trip to the Kinabalu National Park. If the lengthy list of animals that inhabit the park wasn’t enough to make the park a desirable destination, Mount Kinabalu also stands majestically within the boundaries of the park and is one of the highest peaks in all of Southeast Asia. Climbing the mountain is certainly a challenge, but well worth it for the incredible vistas on offer from the summit.
