Perfect for all ages, our family tours of Borneo include exceptional wildlife, jungle adventures, beaches and coral islands.

If your children are at all interested in animals and the natural world, then a family trip to Borneo is guaranteed to inspire and amaze families of all ages.

Our Borneo family travel designers have years of experience in delivering tailor-made family trips, and your dedicated designer will shoulder all the detailed planning for a seamless adventure you can just sit back and enjoy. They will help you create an itinerary that fits your time, tastes and interests as a family, factoring in your ages and ideal accommodation along with private tours, effortless travelling ease, and personal support and service from start to finish.

Explore the dense forests in comfort and safety as your superb guides accompany you on safaris through the Kinabatangan Rainforest and Danum Valley, where you’ll encounter a wealth of animal species. For encounters with endangered and highly curious Orang-utans, Jacada can organise trips to Sepilok to view them in the wild, one of the few places to do so. For a relaxing end to your family trip, Borneo’s collections of tropical islands off the coast of Kota Kinabalu provide some excellent snorkelling and diving sites. Family-friendly resorts in the region host a range of activities such as water sports, quad-bike safaris and catamaran cruises.

For families with an interest in wildlife, Borneo is THE place to go in Asia. Viewing orangutans at close range and taking river boat safaris to spot pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and crocodiles is great fun and a truly memorable experience.
