Designing your own expedition can be hugely time consuming and going for an ‘off the shelf’ one probably won’t achieve what you are setting out to do – so we’ve have decided to combat these problems for you by giving you the perfect expedition without the hassle. This is how:
What you need to do first is decide on when and how long you want your trip to be. Once you have done this then just follow these 3 simple steps:
Kukri works with project partners around Malaysian Borneo to find the suitable, educational and valid projects for your team. Our commitment is to provide projects that benefit the communities and causes that we work with. Choose from a project with either a community or an environmental conservation objective.
Our environmental projects see us work with experts in conservation who are working towards protecting the incredibly rich and bio-diverse environment in Borneo. There is a wealth of wildlife, landscapes, flora and fauna in Borneo and also a vast variety of threats to the forests and the animals that habitat here. Volunteering on environmental projects is an amazing firsthand educational experience for students.
Our community projects are based in Sabah, Borneo – a developing part of Malaysia with a wide income divide. Many communities still do not have access to fresh drinking water, schools, hospitals or sanitation systems while many villages are remote and access to these resources is limited. Kukri Projects aim to improve the facilities of marginalized communities and expose young people to the different lifestyles others live. During these projects students learn about Borneo’s culture through, food, drink, dance, homestays and language while learning about what makes Malaysian Borneo unique. Living or working in a Borneo ‘kampung’ will be an unforgettable experience!
Borneo is one of the world’s greatest adventure destinations, with jungle, white water, mountain, lagoons and much more all within a stone’s throw of each other and not even that far from a major city. It’s so good in fact that in the past epic adventure races such as the Eco Challenge and The Mild Seven Outdoor Quest have all based themselves in Borneo.
We have put together a list of what we think are some of the best adventures you can have whilst out in Borneo – have a look at the link to find out more:
