This year in April, YPT offers you to escape the crowds and head back to wild nature on a trip to the jungle of Borneo! To design this trip, we have teamed up with local partners who can take us where few tourists go. You can expect a trip full of jungle treks and rich in encounters.
During this trip, we’ll charter boats to visit the Tanjung Datu National Park, on the tip of the Sarawak region. It is one of Malaysia’s most beautiful park, where lush dipterocarp forest come to meet the pristine waters and coral reef. As one of the least accessible parks of Malaysia, it will truly be ours to enjoy. It features an incredible biodiversity.
We’ll also spend a day on a boat hoping to find turtles as they go swimming, maybe even see them lay their eggs by the beach.
The tour also comes with a homestay amongst the Bidayuh community, where people still live in longhouses. That evening, we can see the very special frogs of Kubah National Park. From there, we will visit the Orang Utan preservation center, where we can not only meet the hairy guys but also learn more about the efforts that are made to preserve the species.
A tour of Borneo wouldn’t be complete without stopping by the Bako National Park, the oldest National Park in Sarawak and home to the proboscis monkeys. These monkeys, the weirdest looking ones if you ask us, can only be found here in Borneo.
Our trip starts in the city of Kuching but ends in Kuala Lumpur, which will allow us to take in one of the most multicultural and interesting cities of Asia. It is also a great launching pad for further adventures if you still have time. Sign up quickly for what is the perfect spring getaway!
