Wow Borneo

WOW Borneo’s aim is to give our guests an intimate encounter with Kalimantan, its forests and wildlife, by working with the local Dayak people to create amazing once in a lifetime holidays.

We do this through our famous cruise journeys. Kalimantan’s rivers remain the best way to travel through the forested landscape, and to experience  Borneo’s iconic and endangered orangutan and the fascinating Dayak culture. Our specially guided tours enable you to discover the orangutan in its natural habitat and give you the opportunity to make a difference to their survival through the Borneo Orangutan Survival adoption program.

Our overland tours take you to experience first hand the mystical Dayak culture by staying in longhouses, or visiting the Derawan islands to explore the hidden depths beneath the sea, or to go beyond Kalimantan’s shores to the islands of the great monitor lizard, the Komodo dragon.

Wow Cruises

WOW Borneo’s Rahai’i Pangun luxurious cruise boats take you through beautiful  forest lined rivers to discover wildlife and Dayak culture. Our specially guided tours pass orangutan pre-release islands enabling you to learn about and observe the iconic orangutan in their natural habitat after being rescued and rehabilitated as part of the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation’s program.
