Orangutans in Borneo

See orangutans in Borneo is unforgettable, and Borneo is actually one of only two places left (the other is Sumatra) in the world to see endangered orangutans. The word orangutan means “forest people” in Bahasa Malay; that is exactly what these extremely intelligent primates are.

The orangutans have even been known to use complex tools, exchange gifts, and learn sign language. Unfortunately, these amazing animals are disappearing quickly. If planning to visit Borneo, seeing orangutans in the wild should be a priority!
