Exploring Safari’s Online Features: What You Need to Know
Safari is a popular web browser developed by Apple Inc. Known for its sleek design and seamless user experience, Safari has grown to become one of the most widely used browsers across various devices. In this article, we will delve into Safari’s online features and help you discover how you can make the most of your browsing experience.
Enhanced Privacy and Security
When it comes to online browsing, privacy and security are paramount concerns for many users. Safari takes these concerns seriously and offers several features to ensure a safe and secure browsing experience.
Safari also utilizes sandboxing technology, which isolates each website in its own separate process, preventing malicious code from affecting other parts of your system or compromising your personal information.
Additionally, Safari includes built-in protection against fraudulent websites and phishing attempts. It automatically checks URLs against a list of known malicious websites, keeping you safe from potential threats.
Seamless Integration with Apple Ecosystem
If you are an Apple user with multiple devices such as iPhones, iPads, or Macs, Safari offers seamless integration across all these devices. With iCloud syncing enabled, you can easily access tabs open on one device from another device using Safari’s “Shared Tabs” feature.
This means that if you find an interesting webpage on your iPhone but prefer to read it on your iPad or Mac later on, simply open up Safari on the other device and select the “Tabs” button in the toolbar. You will find a list of all open tabs across all synced devices, allowing you to continue where you left off seamlessly.
Furthermore, when it comes to passwords and credit card information, Safari offers its own password manager called iCloud Keychain. It securely stores your passwords and credit card details across all your Apple devices, making it convenient to autofill login forms and make online purchases with ease.
Intelligent Tab Management
With the increasing number of tabs we open while browsing the internet, managing them efficiently becomes crucial for productivity. Safari provides several features to help you organize and navigate through your tabs effortlessly.
One such feature is the ability to group tabs together. You can create tab groups based on specific themes or topics by simply dragging one tab onto another. This helps keep your browsing organized and makes it easier to find related content when you need it.
Safari also offers a powerful tab search feature that allows you to quickly locate a specific tab by typing in keywords or even searching for open tabs from a particular time range. This eliminates the hassle of scrolling through numerous tabs to find what you are looking for.
Moreover, Safari’s “Tab Preview” feature provides a visual overview of all open tabs, making it easier to identify and switch between them with just a glance.
Personalization is key when it comes to enhancing your browsing experience, and Safari understands this well. The browser offers various customization options that allow you to tailor Safari according to your preferences.
Safari’s “Extensions” feature enables you to enhance the functionality of the browser by installing third-party extensions from the App Store. These extensions can add features such as ad-blocking, password management tools, or even productivity-enhancing tools like note-taking apps.
In addition, Safari allows you to modify its appearance by choosing from different themes or customizing toolbar buttons according to your liking. You can also adjust settings related to privacy, security, and content restrictions based on your individual needs.
By taking advantage of these customization options, you can truly make Safari feel like your own personalized browsing tool.
In conclusion, Safari’s online features offer a range of benefits to users. From enhanced privacy and security measures to seamless integration with the Apple ecosystem, intelligent tab management, and customization options, Safari has a lot to offer. So, if you’re looking for a reliable and feature-rich web browser, give Safari a try and explore the vast possibilities it offers for your online browsing needs.

Borneo Safari Vacations
Borneo is one of the world's greatest wildlife-watching destinations; a faraway island blanketed with misty jungles and filled with a honeypot of weird and wonderful biodiversity this unspoiled pristine pocket of life is a paradise waiting to be rediscovered. Consisting of the world's oldest and most revered rainforests, the vastness of dense canopies and rich foliage lets trekkers experience Mother Nature in her full glory.
Shrouding an ethereal world, the sacred trees become an audience to the veritable orchestra of sounds - chirps and clicks, squeals and ticks amongst the constant drone of cicadas. At home in the promised land, sun bears, orangutans, and clouded leopards all form the endless and unforgettable cacophony of the amazing Kinabatangan rainforest.
Borneo safari holidays are a firm favourite for wildlife enthusiasts. The island plays host to an enormous assortment of uniquely endangered wildlife, such as the charming and gentle orangutan, noisy proboscis monkey and diminutive pygmy elephant. Flora and fauna abound on this Eden-like sanctuary, with a staggering 15,000 species of flowering plants and 3,000 tree types, in addition to rare orchid, 12 species of rafflesia (the world’s largest flower) and in excess of 600 bird species. All of this contributes to what is an incredibly diverse area and makes for the ultimate Borneo vacation.
Why NWS for your Borneo safari?
We originally started back in 2005 as World Primate Safaris. Our CEO and Founder, Will Bolsover, spent many years in jungles across the world tracking and guiding primates. Since then, we have gained years of valuable experience designing itineraries that put you in the right place, at the right time for the ultimate Bornean orangutan safaris. Our Borneo holidays have been widely featured in the national press, including Departures Magazine, The Independent and Sunday Times. We have used the same guides in Borneo for years, simply because they are the best at what they do. It takes expertise and patience to find these mesmerising and peaceful animals but our guides have expert local knowledge which they will share with you, teaching you all about your surroundings, from the topography and wildlife to the local peoples and cultures.
We also support the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, which rehabilitates baby orangutans and those found in captivity with the aim of getting them back out into the wild. Visiting the sanctuary is the highlight of many peoples' visit, offering a great opportunity to witness these great apes in a beautiful setting, where they can comfortably coexist.
How Much Does Borneo Cost?
Typically, expect to budget around $10500 per person for a 13-day safari in Borneo. This will generally include charter flights to and from Sandarkan, For a shorter 5-day experience staying at five camps, expect to budget $7000 per person. Journeying through the heart of the oldest rainforests on Earth, luxury eco-lodges and boutique island retreats, combine with jungle exploration for the ultimate island getaway.

The borneo safari experience.
Borneo vacations are a firm favourite for wildlife enthusiasts. A faraway island blanketed with misty jungles and filled with a honeypot of weird and wonderful biodiversity; this unspoiled pristine pocket of life is a paradise waiting to be rediscovered. When travelling the interior, be prepared for the unexpected. There may be times when the experienced boatmen will hold the journey for an hour or two for the roaring river to subside, travellers may have to oblige with the local customs and join in the wedding celebrations or respect taboos following a death in the village. All these contribute to the unique experience of Borneo and the magic she brings to any family, solo traveller, or honeymooner, on your journey through this tropical island paradise.
You may wish to include the following in your Borneo itinerary:
- Orangutan Watching – visit the Sepilok Orangutan Centre where you can visit with the rehabilitated orangutans
- River Safaris - cruise along the wildlife oasis of the Kinabatangan River
- Jungle Adventures - explore forest trails and view the jungle from a towering canopy walkway
- Night Safaris - enjoy guided night walks to spot nocturnal creatures

- Hot Springs - Soothe tired or aching muscles with relaxation in Poring Hot Springs
Where to stay in Borneo?
Accommodation in Borneo can vary according to the area and activity, with some lavish and opulent hotels in Kota Kinabalu contrasting with stilted rainforest eco-lodges on the Kinabatangan River or basic rustic camps in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu. On the island retreats of Lankayan and Mataking, you will find chalets and bungalows teasingly close to the pristine beaches, some on wooden walkways out in the ocean.
When to go to Borneo?
Borneo lies within the tropics of Asia, becoming a destination with high humidity and rainfall expected at any time of the year. The best time to spot wild orangutans in Borneo is between April and May, as the wet season begins to end and fruits ripen on trees. In general, Borneo is accessible between March and October, with the wettest months generally between December and February when the Northeast Monsoon hits.

What to expect from a trip to Borneo
Our trip was brilliant. Everything ran smoothly and our wildlife encounters were incredible! We'd love to travel again!
The accommodations and guides were very good and the destination specialists we worked with were very helpful!
We experienced some incredible wildlife sightings on this trip which was aided by our fantastic guides!
We visited several different areas, all were slightly different and offered a different experience. The two places we stayed on the Kinabatangan offered something different - watching and an orangutan build his nest was a highlight at KWR and we saw an elephant swimming across the river at Sukau. Deramakot Forest was also a highlight due to our guide's knowledge and passion for the area. Choosing the right travel company is super important and we felt we had done well in this regard. Conservation and tourism is a tricky balance and I think NWS considers this and it is vital to me to spend my holiday budget as wisely as I can in support of conservation. The quality of the guides can make all the difference and NWS did very well for us. We had a busy schedule and it all went like clockwork which makes these trips much less stressful. Budget allowing, I would love to travel frequently - I love what you are doing as a company, and having someone who will learn what we want seems like a good partnership.
I had consulted with a number of different travel agencies prior to selecting NWS for this trip. My selection was based on NWS's professionalism, attention to detail and responsiveness. She and NWS did not disappoint. NWS paid meticulous attention to every detail of our trip. The app was a wonderful added benefit as it provided all the info we needed plus an opportunity to record all our memories. Thank you for a delightful trip. Everything was perfect and well designed on this trip.
Overall a great trip. The guides (especially the NWS Asia Destination Specialists) were outstanding, and all of the resorts were top quality. Outstanding planning services, strong support services (app, guides) Good value.
Borneo Safari Vacations FAQs
Can i drink tap water in borneo.
The water in many lodges and hotels in Borneo is, in fact, safe to drink, but we don't believe it's worth taking the risk during your safari. Stick to bottled water throughout your trip; it is readily available and inexpensive. The last thing you want on that trip of a lifetime is an upset stomach, when it could have been easily avoided.

Kota Kinabalu provides upscale options, including 4 to 5-star hotels like Shangri-La, which offer pools, beaches, and dining. Notably, Rasa Ria features an orangutan rehabilitation center, introducing you to Borneo's iconic wildlife.

Travel with confidence
A Borneo wildlife safari to the rich and biodiverse tropical forests of Borneo and neighbouring Sarawak is a wildlife experience you will never forget. By travelling there with an environmentally aware company like Wildlife Trails, with your own private expert naturalist and staying longer at the key wildlife destinations, you can play your part in helping conserve the incredible animal and plant diversity on display. Wildlife in Borneo is simply amazing to see up close and personal and our tours with plenty of time given over to nighttime Borneo safaris, gives you more chance of seeing some of the most iconic species. Some clients may enjoy our Borneo wildlife expeditions, with a focus on trekking, simple accommodation and finding new and exciting destinations to see rare and endangered Borneo mammals.
As biologists and keen photographers, we design and plan our Borneo wildlife holidays to not only maximise your wildlife encounters during the day, with iconic species such as Orangutans, Pygmy Elephants and Proboscis monkeys, but also to help you ‘see in the dark’ and encounter rare wildlife, such as Flat Headed Cat, Leopard Cat, Slow Loris and the exquisite Clouded Leopard; as we add in additional night time safaris at each reserve.
If you’re looking to book a Borneo wildlife tour and are unsure when to go, check out our dedicated blog post, about the best time to visit Borneo here.

Best Borneo Rainforest Lodges To Stay In
Many clients when planning their Borneo Tour want to build an itinerary around the best Borneo Rainforest Lodges; which because of their locations and reputation for good guides attract wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike.
How to See the Komodo Dragons in an Ethical Fashion
Komodo Dragons have fascinated visitors to the beautiful islands of Komodo and Rinca for hundreds of years, but now for the first time, we are faced with a 'tourism threat' to the largest lizards on the planet and any ethical tour operator needs to be careful in how they both promote and organise Komodo and Rinca tours.
Do We Act Back Home, On What We See on Holiday?
When we first sent James on his Borneo Safari back in 2003 our whole focus was on maximising the wildlife potential of his time in this beautiful country. However, despite the amazing pictures he took in the Danum Valley and along the Kinabatangan River of Probosis Monkeys and Wild Orangutans, what I remember most is the stories of clear cut or burnt rainforest and huge monospecific plantations appearing in once prime forest.
Our Clients Say About Us
My wife and I travelled on a private safari to see Komodo dragons in Indonesia, and on to Sabah. Komodo and Rinca Island were well worth the effort ,the dragons are well worth seeing, and the time the boat was tremendous, with stunning scenery and great snorkelling. The captain’s culinary skills were a surprise bonus. All of the lodges within Sabah were excellent, but with their own, different personalities The Rainforest lodge offers real comfort and the opportunity for good wildlife viewings, we even had a brief sighting of two Pygmy elephants en route to the lodge. Macaques greeted us as we arrived, and Dean, our guide at the lodge was excellent. Tabin is a birder’s paradise, and we saw 6 species of hornbill during our stay. Israel was our guide and was an expert birder. Gibbons were to be seen on some mornings, and the sound of their calling across the forest was memorable. The trails between the Primary, secondary rainforest and palm plantations gave opportunities for good sightings during dusk, and night drives, including Civet, flying squirrels and a number of leopard cats. Forest walking yielded our first Orang Utan sighting, a young male, a bit miffed at being stung by some bees. Myne lodge stands out for us as we love boats and we had a number of OU sightings including one great one, spending over an hour watching an older male feeding from a Ficus tree. More macaques than you can shake a stick at, and good Proboscis monkey watching too. No elephants around for us though. Special mention to Maik, our main guide and companion for our time in Sabah. Excellent guide, knowledgeable, resourceful, and with a great sense of humour. Lankayan Island is truly a paradise. A great way to relax after an arduous trip, more excellent snorkelling,and we were lucky enough to witness newly hatched Hawksbill turtles being released to make their way to the sea. We have travelled many times now with Wildlife Trails, and have had some memorable experiences within Asia, Africa, Canada, the Arctic circle and South America. Allan and his team have always come up with an itinerary, customised to our needs. The fact that we have come back so many times says it all.
