Borneo and Bali offer a great chance to get close to nature
If you want to experience the best of what the natural world has to offer, a luxury vacation in the jungles of south-east Asia could be an ideal choice.
For those who want to mix seeing exotic wildlife with relaxing beaches and beautiful scenery, Scott Dunn's 'Natural Wonders in Borneo and Bali' tour presents an unforgettable experience.
After a stopover at the luxurious Mandarin Hotel in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, your adventure into the wilds of the jungle begins with a night at the Sepilok Nature Resort in Borneo to witness orangutans at feeding time - an experience not to be missed.
But this is far from the only chance you'll have to get close to nature on a trip to Borneo and Bali. At Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge, for example, creatures such as proboscis monkeys, hornbills and pygmy elephants, and even wild orangutans, can be seen when you take a leisurely trip down the Kinabatangan River with your own wildlife guide, who will make sure you don't miss a thing.
Meanwhile, Lankayan Island, which is part of a huge Marine Conservation Area, offers great opportunities to see life below the waves during a snorkeling or scuba diving trip. Lankayan is also a nesting place for green and hawksbill turtles, giving visitors the chance to see baby turtles being released into the sea at certain times of year. Daring tourists can even take a swim with some baby sharks.
The stunning scenery of this remote paradise isn't limited to under the water though, as the beautiful Robinson Crusoe-esque location is famous for its gorgeous beaches.
After all this, unwind with five nights at the Amankila luxury retreat on the secluded east coast of Bali. This gives you great views of the Lombok Straits, and its dedicated staff can arrange almost anything you desire, from private dining on the beach to setting up a bed so that you can sleep under the stars.
