Are you looking for an unmatched adventure through lush rainforests and crystal clear waters? Do you want to see nature reserves and wildlife unlike any other? Then look no further than Borneo!
An island shared by Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia, Borneo, was not open to public tourism due to safety concerns up until recently. Now, it seems like a popular destination as we see people all over the world heading to the island via private yachts. This is because it is home to incredible rainforests, one-of-a-kind wildlife, and ancient spots dating back centuries.
Since it was predominantly isolated by humans, it is rich with a multitude of various wildlife. Some of the most famous include orangutans, hammerhead sharks, pigmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, and clouded leopards. Consider taking a boat safari through the waters to get a peek at this wildlife.
Moreover, offshore, you can also visit Mount Kinabalu, where you can hike up to the island’s highest peak and get 360 degrees mesmerizing views of the land. But if you want to experience jungles and forests that are completely pristine and give you the perfect dose of nature, then head over to Danum Valley.
While you’re there, you can dive and snorkel and explore the stunning underwater treasures the island offers. The Baracuda Point is packed with turtles. Or, you can go to Layang-Layang for a chance to spot the infamous and unique hammerhead sharks.
So, if nature and wildlife are what you crave, then you must charter your private yacht through Borneo ASAP!
