Borneo − the world’s third-largest island is one of the most biodiverse islands, from beautiful beaches and coral reefs to vast mountains and ancient, tropical jungles. The island also contains one of the oldest rainforests in the world, 140 million years old. Its forests harbour exceptionally high levels of species diversity and endemism, including many rare and unique bird, cat, and primate species. The five (Borneo Big 5) most iconic wildlife animals are the Pygmy Elephant, the Proboscis Monkey, the Orangutan, the Rhinoceros Hornbill and the Estuarine Crocodile.
Borneo is also known for having some of the best diving and snorkelling spots in the world, part of the Coral Triangle and famous for large pelagic and abundant sea turtles.
