"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page"- Augustine, (AD 364 -430).
"I travel to stretch the dimensions of my mind; to make the most of the one life I have been given; because travel makes me richer; and to broaden my story. I look forward to taking you on the journey with me." - Dr Sarah Pye
Borneo is home to endangered orangutans, sun bears, pangolins, clouded leopards, pygmy elephants and proboscis monkeys. Join me on a tour for the chance to see some of them before they disapear.
Just like the Amazon, the rainforests of Borneo are the lungs of our planet. The rainforest is home to about 15,000 flowering plants and 3,000 species of trees, many unique to the island. This really is Eden on Earth!

You've read the book, now experience the wildlife of Borneo for yourself! This tour follows the life and work of Wong Siew Te in Sabah, Borneo. We will visit Sandakan, Sepilok, Kinabatangan River, Danum Valley Conservation Area and meet the man himself.
Ascend 4000 metre Mount Kinabalu then walk some of the infamous WWII Death March trail on which 2434 Allied prisoners lost their lives. This walk is not for the faint-hearted, both physically and emotionally.
There is no better way to write about the environment than by immersing yourself in it. This tour includes hands-on inspirational experiences and writing workshops to get your creative juices flowing.
Dates in 2022 to be confirmed.
Borneo, a giant, rugged island in Southeast Asia’s Malay Archipelago, is shared by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the tiny nation of Brunei. Its ancient and biodiverse rainforest is home to extraordinary and unique wildlife including orangutans, sun bears and clouded leopards. Borneo's highest peak, Mount Kinabalu (4,095 m), pokes above the clouds and surveys paradise below.

People who go on Sarah's tours have amazing experiences. Read what they have to say:
I was lucky enough to join Sarah on a study tour to Borneo in 2014 as part of my public relations degree. It was the highlight of my university program, and I recommend it highly.
I have been on walking weekend Sarah organised in Queensland. She is unflappable, fun be be with, and can relate to anyone. I can't wait to benefit from her experience in Borneo.
Borneo has always been on my bucket list & I am so glad I did it. I recommend a tour with an expert such as Sarah to truly maximise the experience & to make sure you get to see all of the beauty of Borneo.
