The Borneo rainforest is 130 million years old, making it the oldest rainforest in the world. There are about 15,000 species of flowering plants with 3,000 species of trees, 221 species of terrestrial mammals, 420 species of resident birds, and 440 freshwater fish species in Borneo (about the same as Sumatra and Java combined). It is the centre of evolution and radiation of many endemic species of plants and animals. Learn more
About Brunei: According to legend, Brunei was founded by Awang Alak Betatar. His move from Garang, a place in the Temburong District to the Brunei river estuary led to the discovery of Brunei. Upon landing he exclaimed “Baru nah!” (loosely translating as “that’s it!” or “there”), from which the name “Brunei” was derived. Visit Brunei Tourism Website
- Very friendly and knowledgeable. Really did take excellent care of us. The water village is fantastic and we even got to see a proboscis monkey up close! All in all, a great way to spend an afternoon and I have no hesitation recommending these guys to others.

- They were excellent. Borneo Guide's organisation was spot on - every step of the way we were met by someone who did what they had to do - no stress for us - for example they greeted us at the jetty and organised tickets to board the boat to Temburong, ditto on the return.

- The camping was led by an Iban guide who also shared some of his knowledge in jungle survival. I was pleasantly surprised by the diving. The trip into Ulu National Park proper was beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable. The sight seeing trips in and around Darussalam were also pleasant and interesting. All in all my week in Brunei was excellent. thanks to Borneo Guide.
