How is this country's ability to cater for vegans/vegetarians/celiacs?
There are vegetarian restaurants in most cities and we will make every effort to provide food that caters to your needs. Most meals in Sarawak and Sabah are rice-based and there are also a number of non-wheat flour noodle choices, but please do let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements so we can inform our team in Borneo.
I have allergies, will these be catered for?
Yes, however please make sure our happiness team is aware of your allergies before you arrive so that we can inform the right people on the adventure. Some medications may not be available in Malaysia, so make sure to pack any medications you may need.
Is it safe to drink the tap water?
The tap water is treated. However, to ensure a trouble-free holiday it’s best to drink bottled water. At the lodges - in an effort to reduce single-use plastic - boiled and filtered water is available, and there are also opportunities to buy additional bottles. We encourage bringing and using a refillable flask.
I don't drink alcohol, will this trip be full of drinking? What options will I have instead?
The focus of this trip is on the nature and the culture, so no problem if you do not drink. There are plenty of options for local fruit drinks and/or soft drinks.
