“You have been such a great help and made me feel confident and made me feel that I’m well prepared and able to do this alone knowing that there is such a great team of people around me to help and support me. Again thank you so much for your time and patience. Soooo looking forward to this. Who knows, maybe it’s the beginning of many experiences like this!!”

Destination of the month


Borneo has to be one of the most dreamed-of locations in the world. Its vast rainforests, beautiful rivers, golden coastlines and prolific wildlife has turned this island into one of the top bucket list locations. Discover the ever-smiling people of the local tribes, taste the delicious cuisine and get to know the jungle with all of its incredible fauna and flora. And we all know which creatures are hiding in the depths of those forests….

As many people like to stay for longer in Borneo, we can offer you a discount of £50 if you choose to combine any of our Borneo projects.
