At a glance

We have carefully selected the best family-friendly accommodation alongside thrilling excursions (for most ages) in our favourite regions of Borneo for this exciting, easy and exceptional family adventure – and topped off with an indulgent Langkawi beach retreat.

This 12-day trip will introduce your children to the some of the world’s most endearing and endangered animals including the orangutan, sunbear and, with luck, the pygmy elephant. You will spend time in the lush jungle on soaring treetop walks in search of wildlife in their natural habitat and witness some of Borneo’s most picturesque scenery, between rapids, as you spend an exhilarating day white water rafting. We’ll then arrange for a private guide to show you the best of bustling Kuala Lumpur. You then round off this extraordinary trip in gorgeous Langkawi as you explore the island by bike and boat, with time to simply unwind and reflect on the fine white sands of the sweeping beaches.
