natural landscapes, exceptional wildlife and spectacular islands

It may be small, but Borneo’s Sabah state packs in spectacular natural landscapes, exceptional wildlife encounters and far flung islands. There are endless adventures to be had, from climbing to the peak of Mt Kinabalu to meeting orang-utans in Sepilok.

From the buzzing capital of Kota Kinabalu to swathes of unexplored rainforest, the diversity of Sabah is what makes it such a special place.
Sabah’s main claim to fame is the fantastic wildlife viewing to be had. The Kinabatangan River will introduce you to pygmy elephants, long-tailed macaques, proboscis monkeys and a multitude of birds, whilst treks through the ancient forests of Danum Valley offer sightings of sun bears, gibbons and, if you’re lucky, the elusive cloud leopard.

If you dream of up-close encounters with orang-utans, the world-renowned Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is a real gem. Located in eastern Sabah, you can learn about the work done to protect these endangered creatures and enjoy observing them at close quarters during feeding sessions.

Sabah has other attractions too. For the thrill-seekers, you can hike to the peak of Mt Kinabalu which dominates the skyline at over 4,000 metres. You can also visit the stunning Maliau Basin, a hidden treasure home to the spectacular seven-tiered Maliau Falls.

End your journey through Sabah on the sensational tropical islands that wait just off the coast. Sipadan is known for its world-class diving, whilst the secluded Langkawi is ideal for those who seek total tranquillity.

Whether you want to track a certain species, delve into unexplored regions or simply have the adventure of a lifetime, our specialists can put together your ultimate trip to Sabah.
