The island of Borneo is a place of great natural beauty and rich biodiversity. From the peaks of the majestic Mount Kinabalu to the enchanting coral-fringed islands that lie offshore, with vast tracts of lush rainforest in between, Borneo's landscape is as varied as it is magnificent. In Wild Borneo, author Nick Garbutt embarks upon a fascinating investigation into the wonders of this island, exploring every aspect of Borneo's terrain, from its rainforest-covered lowland areas to its mountain ranges, highland areas, and winding rivers. He shows us the profusion of flora and fauna living within these habitats, including the enormous Rafflesia flower, the carnivorous Pitcher plants, snakes, frogs and lizards that fly, fish that walk on mud, and rich and varied bird life. The island is home to a diversity of mammal species, some of which are highly unusual, including the outrageous-looking Proboscis Monkey, the remarkably tolerant Bornean Pygmy Elephant, the diminutive and shaggy Sumatran Rhinoceros, the native Bornean Orang-utan, and the doe-eyed, endearing Slow Loris.Published in association with the World Wildlife Fund for Nature, Wild Borneo also examines the ongoing attempts to preserve the island's natural resources in the face of commercial logging and large-scale land clearing. Illustrated with more than 200 stunning photographs, this book offers a vivid celebration of Borneo's many natural wonders.
The vast, jungle-covered island of Borneo, the third largest in the world, has always held a fascination for Western travellers. This was where head-hunters ran wild and which, according to romantic myth, was rich in gold and diamonds. Today's attractions are of a different kind: trekking through pristine national parks; whitewater rafting on tropical rivers; and some of the very best dive sites in the world. This new addition to the acclaimed Footprint stable is up-to-date and packed with information and recommendations of where to stay and eat, places to visit and how to get around, as well as a comprehensive background section to help you understand the island's rich and diverse culture.

Updated throughout, this revised guide caters for all with information on how to trek through one of the region's national parks, catch a glimpse of an orang-utan, spend the night in a longhouse, or shop in the bustling markets. From the highlands and islands of Sabah and Sarawak, to the mosques and mysticism of the Sultanate of Brunei, Borneo is a mesmerizing mix of cultures, endangered animals, tropical rainforest and carnivorous plants.

The book also gives us an insight into the incredible diversity of the island's unique flora and fauna; the rivers, mountains, forests and tropical coasts that form the island's physical features; and Borneo's development and role today.
