Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica

Giant trees soar into the skies, and a milky mist suspends in the upper reaches of the canopy in Costa Rica's Monteverde Cloud Forest, home to hundreds of mammal, reptile and bird species. Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of the rare red and turquoise feathers of the resplendent quetzal, as well as playful howler monkey and sleepy sloth. Get under the skin of this captivating natural world with an overnight stay in the heart of the jungle, and head out into the darkness to witness vibrant nocturnal creatures coming to life.

Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar

Sadly, the rainforests of Madagascar are rapidly shrinking due to deforestation, but these precious ecosystems are home to a variety of endemic lemur as well as many other plants, mammals and reptiles that don't exist anywhere else in the world. Head to Ranomafana National Park to see this endangered natural wonder for yourself, before it retreats any further. Explore the lush rainforests on foot to get up close with unique wildlife and keep an eye out for the elusive Golden Bamboo Lemur.

Danum Valley, Borneo

As we head deeper into the protected Danum Valley in Borneo, we get the chance to witness the vitality and splendour of a primary rainforest that has been largely untouched by man. Giant Dipterocarpaceae trees, some as high as 70 metres, tower above us, and orangutans swing through the branches in search of food. We'll get up early to watch the forest stir and to see the sun cast its golden light over the canopy. Bird song echoes through the dense jungle foliage and families of endemic Proboscis monkey begin to forage for a feast of fresh fruit. Not a bad way to start the day!

Sinharaja Rainforest Reserve, Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's Sinharaja Rainforest Reserve is a World Heritage Site of evergreen virgin rainforest. Join a local expert for a guided walk along forested trails to learn about endemic plants, birds and animal-life within the tropical thicket. Purple-faced leaf monkey can be heard calling through the forest, and see if you can spot Sri Lankan Reed Frog in the freshwater streams. Rain is frequent in this damp and humid biosphere, but the upside of all this water is the picture-perfect pearly-white waterfalls cascading through the verdant oasis.
