Holiday Itinerary

DAY 1 - 3

Kota Kinabalu Beach Resort
Head to the coast and Kota Kinabalu, the regional capital, which has excellent amenities, superb beaches, and National Parks within easy reach. Enjoy a few relaxed days at leisure on the sand or by the pool. Just offshore, the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Marine Park offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in Borneo; its coral reefs are home to an array of marine life including sea turtles, giant groupers and trigger fish, and day of snorkelling and kayaking can easily be arranged.


Sepilok Orang-utan Sanctuary
Sepilok is an area of protected primary rainforest and mangrove on mainland Borneo, and its orang-utan rehabilitation centre is known across the world for exceptional conservation work. The reserve protects 19 square miles of dense rainforest, and exists for the rehabilitation of orphaned and injured orang-utans. Apart from feeding times, when you are almost guaranteed a sighting, you can enjoy looking out for flashes of orange fur amongst the multitude of flora and fauna in the surrounding forests. Spend the night at leisure nearby before getting up to witness orang-utan breakfast time the following morning.

DAY 5 - 6

Danum Valley
Danum’s 170 square mile reserve protects a patch of Borneo's original rainforest - 130 million years old, with a staggering 8.8 million plant species. This remarkable place is home to diverse wildlife, including very rare creatures such as the orang-utan, Bornean pygmy elephant, Spectacled Flowerpecker, and the sun bear. The park has a busy tree nursery and works hard to repopulate the forest, as well as protect the existing trees. As you might imagine, the place isn't exactly overflowing with accommodation options - you will stay deep in the jungle at the much-coveted Borneo Rainforest Lodge, with the wildlife right on your doorstep (and possibly, in the case of insects, inside your room - so be prepared!).
