Borneo is the largest island of Asia, divided into three countries. Kalimantan, the Indonesian territory makes up 73% of the entire island.  The rain forests of Borneo are over 130 million years old, making them 70 million years older than the Amazon!  Blessed with vast natural resources, sectioned by navigable river systems, caves, spectacular coastline and an abundance of flora and fauna, Kalimantan is the centre of evolution and distribution of many endemic species of plants, marine life and animals.  There are over 3000 species of trees, 15,000 species of flowering plants, 440 endemic fresh water fish species, 3000+ marine species, native orangutans, Asian elephants, Sumatran Rhinoceros, Bornean clouded leopard, hoses civet and dayak fruit bats.  This rare and wonderful region of our planet has something for all nature and adventure enthusiasts.  For diving, the Maratua Atoll hosts a startling array of pelagic fish and macro delights while Kakaban’s non- stinging jelly fish lakes can be combined with dives with reef sharks, barracudas and hammerheads.
