KINABATANGAN RIVER

On the morning of day four, you’ll board an early flight to Sandakan in Borneo where you’ll have the opportunity to visit the world-renowned Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. The centre allows visitors to observe rescued orangutans up close during feeding time and as they sleep and play – a truly special experience.

Later, a serene boat ride along the Kinabatangan River will bring you to the award-winning Sukau Rainforest Lodge. The surrounding natural rainforest plays host to an incredible diversity of rare and unusual wildlife, from wild orangutans to proboscis monkeys, Borneo pygmy elephants and countless exotic birds. Perched on the banks of this mighty waterway, Sukau is the perfect base for encounters with the region’s wildlife, offering both enchanting river safaris and night excursions in search of the more elusive, nocturnal species.

DANUM VALLEY

The next part of your journey brings you to another of Borneo’s wildlife hotspots – the Danum Valley and the eco-friendly Borneo Rainforest Lodge. En route, you’ll pay a visit to the fascinating Gomantong Caves where the edible nests for bird’s nest soup (a Chinese delicacy) are gathered.

One of the world’s last remaining swathes of virgin rainforest, studded with waterfalls and crossed by numerous rivers, the Danum Valley is an untouched haven for Borneo’s birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. You’ll get to cross the forest canopy on a soaring suspension bridge and embark on night safaris to spot some interesting nocturnal creatures. Knowledgeable guides will lead you along secret jungle paths and show you the flora and fauna of the deep rainforest. You’ll also have time to visit Coffin Cliff, an ancient cliff-face burial site, and bathe in a crystal-clear rock pool hidden in the jungle.
