Meet your guide
L.O.S.T Borneo are jungle specialists who know the ins and outs of the Borneo jungle. They have an incredible amount of heart and they take pride in not simply being a guide, but also a good friend to their guests. They are comprised of a team of ex-poachers, as they believe that employing poachers in the tourism industry is one of the best ways to facilitate ground-up conservation. Not only will the employed person stop poaching, his entire community will also stop poaching as result of his employment in the tourism industry. This also means that their whole team knows the jungle like the back of their hands, and will show you a different side to nature than anything you have experienced before.
