ABOUT THE ITINERARY

Before flying to Borneo you’ll spend a couple of nights in the modern, Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur where you’ll be able to tour splendid attractions like the Perdana Botanicals Gardens and colourful Thean Hou Temple.

Your Borneo adventure then begins in earnest with a flight to Sandakan. Enjoy visits to the celebrated Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre before making a boat journey to Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Set on the banks of the Kinabatangan River, this will be your base for excursions in search of orangutans, proboscis monkeys, Borneo pygmy elephants and countless birds. Your journey then ends with a few days relaxation on the white sand beach to the north of Kota Kinabalu.
