Introduction

A land of adventures, where jungle-dwelling tribes live in riverside longhouses and head hunters used to roam, the state of Sarawak is everything one imagines Borneo to be.

Its ancient rainforests, broad rivers and vast limestone caves have supported human life since prehistoric times. Today, Iban tribes comprise the largest group of Sarawak's two million people and a visit to a traditional longhouse is a major highlight.

Charles Darwin described Sarawak as ‘one great wild, untidy, luxuriant hothouse, made by nature for herself' and although extensive logging has greatly reduced the area of rainforest in recent years, thick greenery still covers around two-thirds of the state.

The wild areas that remain are some of the most species-rich habitats anywhere on the planet.
