Borneo. It has been a childhood dream to see wild orangutans and our dreams come true! Borneo is one of the biggest islands in the world and has 3 countries on the island. Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. We went to the Malaysian side and saw Orangutans, Probiscus monkeys & crocodiles.
Quick tip: Do your research before going. Borneo in Malaysia has a lot going on in the north and the south, but not much in between.
We spent 2 weeks in Kuching which is the south, but with a bit more planning, 10 days in Kuching would have been enough and 10 days in Kota Kinabalu would have been great. Home to some beautiful beaches & you can get a domestic flight from one to the other.

Have you ever dreamed about seeing wild orangutans? Well since I was a little girl I have always loved animals, a teacher at my school spent a lot of time volunteering in Borneo with orphaned orangutans, which has always inspired me to go. I had to see these beautiful animals myself.
