    Description
    If Borneo is a nature lover's dream (and it is), this fantastic six-day adventure is that dream come to life. Beginning in the dazzling city of Kuching, you'll venture deep into the wondrous Bako National Park - home to odd-looking proboscis monkeys and the carnivorous pitcher plant. Next, it's on to Batang Ai to spend the night in a fascinating Iban longhouse for an eye-opening glimpse into how Malaysia's indigenous peoples live deep in the heart of the jungle. Sarawak is an amazingly out-there place. Come get out there.
