This morning you’ll be transferred back to the airport in order to board a flight to Sandakan in Borneo. You’ll be taken to your nature resort situated in an unspoilt patch of primary forest and tropical gardens. The resort is just a stone’s throw from the world-renowned Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, one of the last remaining refuges of Borneo’s wild orangutans.
Stay: One night in a chalet at Sepilok Nature Resort
Today you’ll visit the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where you’ll be able to watch rescued orangutans up close as they feed, sleep and play. You also have time to visit the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre before hopping on a boat which will take you along Malaysia’s second longest river to Sukau Rainforest Lodge.
This award-winning lodge sits on the banks of the Kinabatangan River, a mighty waterway which supports a plethora of rare and unusual wildlife. The surrounding natural rainforest is the unspoilt habitat of orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Borneo pygmy elephants and huge numbers of exotic birds. Enjoy river cruises in search of the region’s spectacular wildlife, as well as night safaris to spot some of the more elusive, nocturnal animals.
Stay: Two nights in a standard room at Sukau Rainforest Lodge
On day seven you’ll board a boat back to Sandakan and then catch a flight to Kota Kinabalu, otherwise known as KK to the locals. You’ll be transferred to your luxury resort set on beautiful Pantai Dalit Beach, framed by 400 acres of green forest. You’ll be able to head out into the nature reserve search of orangutans as well as hornbills, peacocks and bearcats.
Alternatively, take some time out in the spa or keep busy with the range of water sports available at your doorstep – including deep sea fishing, jet skiing, parasailing and ocean kayaking. An entire day of beach lazing is equally inviting.
Stay: Five nights in a double room at The Shangri La Rasa Ria
