How this holiday makes a difference
In line with our commitment to responsible tourism, all guides and assisting staff on this trip are local people from the Iban tribe. All of our guides and assisting staff on this trek are committed to the conservation of Borneo’s primary rainforest and educate each group about the local wildlife, flora and indigenous populations that live in the Sarawak and the surrounding area.

This trek is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint with the majority of the tours using people power such as walking or kayaking. The tours are designed for small groups to ensure minimal impact to the local environment. We also provide clients with a list of things they can do to reduce their impact on the environment whilst on the trek such as using biodegradable soaps and packaging’s.

The Borneo Red Ape Adventures segment of this tour is built up around the Batang Ai N/P and with the help from the local people from this community. Trekking in this region brings an income to a very remote community. A percentage of the money from the trek goes to support the local communities by using local produce and handicrafts.

The accommodation whilst on the Borneo Red Ape Adventure has been chosen for its responsible environmental policies. The accommodation has been designed to fit in with the natural environment by using native building materials and the accommodation is keeping with the traditional designs of longhouses. The accommodation has also been chosen for the minimal impact it has on the environment for example the hotels and lodges do not wash linen every day.

Furthermore the Borneo Red Ape Adventure tour focus on conservation of the orangutans particularly and the wildlife in general.
