The Borneo Adventure Heart program involves adventure tourism as well a tourism aspects.

 

The initial tour and adventure based itinerary will involve visits to the key tourism sights in the State, from Mount Kinabalu to the Islands, to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Sanctuary, Kota Kinabatangan, Kudat, Ulu Kimanis, Tenom and Keningau, among others. The participants get a taste of the real life experiences of the locals as they travel mainly using local public transportation and also stay at local non luxury accommodation to assimilate local culture.

 

The Volunteerism aspect of program involves participants being assigned to teach English at 4-6 different primary schools in the state, while at the same time learning the local dialects themselves. It was during this time that they have close interaction with the locals they live with, i.e. their host families and the surrounding community, who have expose them to local culture and traditions.

 

The program is geared to expose the participants to character building experiences to break personal boundaries, develop themselves and their world view. It allows them to explore new areas outside their normal environment and learn about other cultures and traditions while at the same time contributing to the communities in which they find themselves.

 

During the entire program participants had a first hand experience of the local culture and norms as they interacted closely with locals, traveling by local public transportation modes to get to their destinations and live in local budget accommodation. Offshoots of the entire program are the economic and myriad other benefits it brings to the local communities through the use of local amenities and facilities and the services rendered on both sides. The activities of the groups including the volunteer services provided by the groups benefit the community in different ways i.e. expansion of knowledge and exposure to a foreign culture among others. The rave reviews of past participants posted online are well received while the participants themselves are ambassadors who promote the delights of Borneo to others.

 

All in all the Adventure Travel program is a satisfying and rewarding experience for all involved.
