“Thrilling natural encounters abound in the lush wilds of Borneo,” exclaims GeoEx's Tina Liadis, recalling her run-ins with six types of hornbill, a revved-up elephant, and a reticulated python. She’s designed this river-cruising and jungle-walking adventure to take travelers deep into Borneo’s rainforest, home to a mind-boggling array of flora and fauna. From bustling Kuching we take our first of many boat excursions into the wildlife-teeming bush, then explore caves and verdant rainforest in Gunung Mulu National Park, visit with resident orangutans in Sandakan, cruise the Kinabatangan River sanctuary, and hike in the forested Danum Valley Conservation Area.
