Discover and array of wildlife on a family adventure in Borneo

It can be challenging coming up with a unique and exciting place to take the family on vacation. One suggestion, however, is to have a safari adventure and see the amazing and varied wildlife on the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia.

When it comes to planning a family vacation there are the typical ideas such as heading to a crowded beach or going to a cliché theme park. And while those kinds of outings can be fun once or twice, it can become stale and boring if you try to do them too many times.

Doing something a little bit out of the ordinary for a family vacation keeps things fresh and makes for a much more exciting time for everyone. And one way to do something a little bit different is to take the family to the amazing island of Borneo to see the plethora of unique wildlife in their natural habitat.

Much of the surface area of Borneo is jungle territory and as such it is home to some fascinating and exciting wildlife. There was a time when the people of Borneo were not very welcoming to international visitors. But over the last decade, they have begun to understand the benefits of tourism and the wonderful natural environment that their island has to offer.

One of the most sought-after species on Borneo are the Orangutans. These beautiful and very friendly creatures are everywhere on the island and can be seen not only on one of the many guided jungle tours but also at the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary.

But orangutans are only the beginning of the wildlife that there is to see on Borneo. There are several companies that offer family cruises down the Kinabatangan River where tourists can see everything from monitor lizards to macaques to hornbills and even pygmy elephants. Some of the companies offering tours and cruises include Intrepid Travel, World Expeditions, and G Adventures.

For generations, the family vacation has been one of the greatest cultural traditions not only in the United States but also in many other countries around the world. But family vacations can become rather bland and unexciting if they involve the same activities year after year. A family outing on the beautiful and wildlife-rich island of Borneo is the perfect remedy to liven up a boring family vacation.
