What You'll Do
Say “goodbye” to your concrete jungle home and “hello” to the actual jungle of Borneo! You and a friend are embarking on an epic 11-day National Geographic Expedition to soak up the wonder of ancient rainforests, awww-inducing wildlife and the rich culture of Malaysian Borneo. This trip is basically the real life version of Hostile Planet’s jungle episode—but it’ll be anything but hostile. You’ll glide along the jungle waterways of the Kinabatangan River. Roam through the canopy of a 130 million-year-old rainforest with little to no human disturbance. Visit the orangutan rehabilitation center of the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve and witness this adorable endangered species in their natural habitat. Between hikes, safaris and river cruises, your thirst for adventure will be quenched and your love of nature will come alive. So… ready to get wild? Flights, lodges and daily meals included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
