Responsible tourism: Borneo 8 day tour, the wild heart of Borneo


In Borneo we encourage our guests to respect the wildlife in each destination. All guides are trained and qualified, and we visit only National Parks and rehabilitation centres where the animals are supported or left on their own.

Before travel, our clients receive a Know Before You Go pack which states to keep water use at a minimum as usable water is a rare commodity.

At the longhouse the power is supplied by solar paneling on the roof. The solar panels would not have been there without the income the tourists generate by visiting the longhouse.

The local suppliers we use in Borneo support local Iban communities in the area and are currently supporting the rebuild of a longhouse which recently burnt down in the fire. They are passionate about supporting the local environment and community and only choose guides who share their same values.

In our Brighton office we have a strict recycling system, where we are recycling nearly 80% of our overall waste. All our paper is then bought from our recycling company to complete the circle.


During this trip you will be injecting money straight into the local community. The overnight stay at the longhouse goes straight to the longhouse family who hosts the client, and then other people in the longhouse who have helped out during the client's stay. All food is bought at the local market to be cooked and eaten so the client is not using the resources of the longhouse. Gifts are also encouraged to be bought from a local market on the way.

We have first hand experience in the city of Kuching and know plenty of local restaurants and cafes which we encourage our guests to support. Trips to the National Park help support the up keep, the protection of wildlife, and the local guides.

All of our guides and local partners are provided with a fair wage and secure job. We love to send them on feedback from clients to encourage their good work and work with them, as a team to provide great service.

A staff member travelled to the longhouse and wrote a blog post about their experience to encourage future clients to visit and how to act or feel to be welcomed and respected locally. We also send a Know Before You Go pack, with a few phrases and information on local etiquette and tipping.
