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 volunteering in Borneo and Malaysia, we offer you a discount of £200 if you choose to combine projects in either of these two locations.

Think of Borneo and you think orangutans. These unmistakeable creatures have become the top highlight for this lush, green and beautiful island. Seeing orangutans in the wild has to be one of the most incredible things that nature-lovers can experience – especially as this is tragically less and less likely. As orangutans’ livelihoods are threatened by logging and palm plantations, the protected swathes of jungle are becoming even more crucial.
Yet Borneo boasts other wonders than these “people of the forest”. Long winding rivers cut through the jungle and long boats line the edge of these waters. The beaches remain undisturbed and the cities a fascinating jumble of eras.
Whilst everyone knows of Borneo, it is still a relatively undiscovered land. This means that our intrepid volunteers can step off the beaten track and into the heart of conservation, working closely with the locals to maintain the presence of orangutans in this area. Whilst you will certainly make the most of exploring this diverse land, the orangutans will likely remain the constant highlight.
