Gap Year Programs in Borneo
Why Take a Gap Year in Borneo
Home to over 250,000 species of flora and fauna and 30 different tribal groups, Borneo is a jaw-dropping mix of raging rivers, precipitous mountain ranges, unexplored caves and dense jungles. Visit one of the last great wildernesses on the planet.
If you want your gap year to be the most unique and off the beaten path, then a gap year in Borneo is an excellent opportunity to visit a giant, tropical island shared by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the tiny nation of Brunei. It's hard to picture what a gap year in Borneo really looks like, but think orangutans, clouded leopards and much more.
In 2016 we completed our work with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation in Borneo. Over three years, our teams had successfully completed a range of infrastructure projects including hides and bridges to aid the local staff in their monitoring of newly released orang-utans into the forests of central Borneo. We are very proud of the accomplishments made by our teams in Borneo and we hope one day to send volunteers there again to work on the next adventure. Until then, if you are interested in travelling to Southeast Asia why not check out our Southeast Asia Explorer.
