ABOUT THE TOUR

Flying into Sandakan, we begin in Sepilok where orphaned and injured orang-utans and sun bears are brought to be rehabilitated before returning to forest life.

We then travel by boat to the Kinabatangan Floodplain, an exceptional part of Sabah, and an area recognised for its natural beauty and role in supporting diverse life. Expect to see proboscis monkeys, langur, gibbon, crocodile, kingfisher, hornbill and many other species of bird, as well as Borneo pygmy elephant and orangutan in the wild.

We journey by road to the lowland rainforest of the Tabin Wildlife Reserve in search of more rare and interesting wildlife like pygmy elephants, highly endangered Sumatran rhino, clouded leopard and wild orangutans (amongst other primates), not to mention countless birds, reptiles and insects.
