This incredible adventure tour of Sarawak provides an in-depth opportunity to spend time with the iconic and indigenous residents of Borneo, both human and ape. We spend 2 days at award winning Matang Wildlife Centre where you'll tour the centre, meeting the orangutans, sunbears, macaques and other animals who call Matang home; you'll learn about the vital function of Matang and join the volunteer team in food preparation and the creation of vital enrichment. A visit to Semengoh rehabilitation centre allows you to see released orangutans living in the semi-wild, swinging gloriously free in this large tract of native rainforest. And in Batang Ai National Park, we stay deep in the rainforest as guests of the Iban tribe; and in addition to learning all about their traditions and jungle life, here there is a chance to spot a truly wild orangutan on one of our daily treks deep into the jungle. We spend 2 nights with the Bidayu people, sleeping in a traditional bamboo longhouse and enjoy an unforgettable bamboo rafting trip on the river, then another 2 nights in a Malay beach village with opportunities to see turtles, gibbons, flying lemurs; and beautiful corals and fish life snorkelling off the beach. And no visit to Sarawak is complete without a day hiking in spectacular Bako National Park, home to beautiful secluded beaches and an incredible array of wildlife including the famous proboscis monkey, slow loris, tarsier and much more. Wildlife lovers and those interested in exploring off the beaten track will love this adventure in the rainforests of Borneo.

Pizza. The Colosseum. Cheap Tuscan wine. Arancini. Michelangelo’s David… Italy is as much about the food as the history, the sights, and all the other stuff you can’t put in your mouth. Think it’s all pizza, pasta and gelato? While that would be 100% okay, it’s not. There are so many foods. So many...
