Sabah Adventure

With its collection of exotic animals, ancient traditions, hot springs, tribal villages, loveable orangutans and incredible views, Sabah has something for everyone. Experience the very best of this part of Borneo - climbing Mt Kinabalu, watching elusive sea turtles lay their eggs upon Turtle Beach and sharing laughs with local village hosts - every minute of this incredible adventure will stay with you for life.

Day 1 Kota Kinabalu
An intriguing city between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea, Kota Kinabalu has a charm that can only be found in a frontier town.

Day 2 Dusun Village
The Dusun people are wonderfully warm and friendly - experience their traditional way of life at a picturesque village nestled in the shadow of Mt Kinabalu.

Days 3-4 Mt Kinabalu
Featuring beautiful nature trails and diverse flora and fauna, Kinabalu National Park encompasses the lowland tropical forest surrounding the imposing peak of Mt Kinabalu.

Days 5-6 Poring Hot Springs
Warm sulphur water is piped into several open-air Japanese-style baths at Poring Hot Springs, which are said to have curative properties for the skin.

Day 7 Kinabatangan River
Located in a small village on the Kinabatangan River, our hosts are the local ecological organisation, MESCOT, whose aim is to provide villagers with environmental education.

Day 8 Sandakan
The busy city of Sandakan has a strong Cantonese influence which is evident in the lively harbourside market, the many Chinese temples and the local cuisine.

Day 9 Turtle Island
Swim, snorkel or laze about on the idyllic Turtle Island, where green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs every night of the year.

Day 10 Sepilok Orangutan Reserve

Set in lush tropical rainforest, the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was established to prepare domesticated or orphaned orangutans to return to the wild.

Days 11-12 Kota Kinabalu
Sabah's historic capital, Kota Kinabalu has interesting museums to explore and the surrounding beaches and islands are perfect for swimming or snorkelling.
