The jungles of Borneo are legendary for their diversity of flora and fauna including 90 species of mammals such as the Borneo orangutan (the only great ape found in Asia), and the critically endangered Borneo pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhinoceros. Just off the coast of Borneo, there is also another “jungle” of sorts in the the Celebes Sea. Here you will find the tiny islands of Sipadan, Mabul and Kapalai, which offer some of the world’s best scuba diving. Dive operators on Mabul and Kapalai offer exclusive access for divers to visit the reefs of the uninhabited island of Sipadan, now a Marine Protected Area and home to a prolific number of green and hawksbill sea turtles. Combine a stay in an overwater bungalow in the Celebes Sea with a stay in a lodge in the jungles of Borneo for the best of both worlds.
