One of the last truly wild places on earth, Borneo offers travellers lush forests filled with endemic flora and fauna, untouched coastlines and labyrinthian caves. This 10-day cruise will reveal the cultural and natural treasures of rugged Borneo, skipping between the Malaysian and Bruneian sections of the island on the comfort of the M/S Panaroma II. Spot birds, butterflies and beasts in four different national parks, discover human history in the Niah Caves and taste local delicacies prepared with fresh seafood and produce along the way.
- Look for strange and vulnerable wildlife in the thickets of evergreen forests, from swollen-nosed proboscis monkeys to exploding ants and wild boar.
- See two different sides of Bandar Sei Begawan in Brunei with a visit to the opulent Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque followed by tea with a local in a sleepy water village.
- Learn how to craft Sarawak classic umai (marinated raw fish and shallots) and the best way to cook sago worms during a demonstration from a local cook.
- Choose to see the virgin rainforest of Ulu Tempurung National Park from the perspective of the birds during a canopy walk.
- Wash off the humidity by soaking in both the crystal-clear waters of the ocean and the mineral-rich volcanic mud pools of Pulau Tiga.
