Spot wildlife on a jungle boat cruise

If you’re interested in wildlife tours, then we have a must-do Borneo trip. You start at the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where you can watch Orangutans feed and play, before heading on to the Kinabatangan River for a cruise to your accommodation for the night: a wooden jungle lodge. Along the way you may see various species of monkeys (Proboscis, Gibbons, Orangutan, and Macaques), monitor lizards, crocodiles, otters, and countless varieties of tropical birds. This trip forms part of our popular Great Apes and Beach Escapes itinerary which also takes you to Kota Kinabalu and Lankayan Island.

Swim with sea turtles in Lankayan

Borneo isn’t all jungles: there are plenty of beaches and islands as well! Lankayan Island is a little slice of paradise, tucked away with few people and all the time in the world to relax and unwind. Snorkelling or diving will let you see a plethora of colourful fish and a chance of seeing a sea turtle swimming by. On the island you may even be lucky enough to watch the sea turtles lay their eggs if you go at the right time of year. This trip forms part of our popular Great Apes and Beach Escapes itinerary which also takes you to Kota Kinabalu and the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.

Trek through the Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Tabin Wildlife Reserve, set up to protect Sabah’s disappearing animals, is a great place to spot wildlife of all sizes, explore the jungle and get active. On this trip you’ll get the chance to see monkeys, bats, monitor lizards and tropical birds in a rainbow of colours amongst a variety of other creatures. If you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of an elephant or an orang-utan during your Borneo jungle trek, so keep your eyes peeled. Staying in a wooden jungle lodge gives you the best spot to sit back and watch the wildlife from your veranda. This trip forms part of our popular A Taste of Sabah itinerary which takes you to the city of Kota Kinabalu, with a few days to climb and explore spectacular Mount Kinabalu, and nicely finishing off with a relaxing stay on the paradise beaches of Gaya Island.
