There are countless destinations for life-changing trips, but wildlife holidays are becoming increasingly popular. The destruction of natural habitats and environmental conservation have become hot issues in international politics and policy, and has also increased awareness of ways normal people can support and participate in conservation efforts. In the heart of Borneo, you can experience incredible flora and fauna on these “orangutan holidays” and as the chatter and rustle of the island’s wildest inhabitants fills the air, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into another world.

For nature enthusiasts who want to go above and beyond a typical holiday, diving into an orangutan holiday is a fully immersive adventure. Depending on what you prefer, you can either seek out orangutans in the wild on guided treks, or ensure some real face-time with these wonderful creatures by visiting one of Borneo’s sanctuaries. There, you will have the chance to meet orangutans and other creatures up close and personal, and have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with one of nature’s threatened treasures. Orangutan holidays are growing in popularity, and with good reason… the opportunity to help a baby orangutan and see them playing in a safe, protected habitat is something that doesn’t come around too often in life!

Estimates place the destruction of orangutan habitats in Borneo at roughly 80%, which has forced many orangutans into dangerous proximity to humans and palm oil plantations. Add the poaching dangers and climate change, and it becomes clear that orangutans need our help. By visiting Borneo on an orangutan holiday, you can satisfy your lifelong dream of meeting some of our closest evolutionary relatives, and also do your part to continue conservation efforts in a part of the world that needs it most. If you want to learn more about how to make your next vacation an orangutan holiday, find out more!
