Go in search of the famous orangutan, sail along the Kinabatangan river and take in the magnificent jungle views. Just in case you still haven’t seen enough wildlife by this point, you’ll venture through the Tabin National park trying to spot elephants and a whole catalogue of animals! Then it’s time to take it easy and relax with your family on a dreamy, golden sand beach. This itinerary has been put together based on the best weather for the summer school holidays and as it has a few activities involved, we recommend this trip for children aged 6 and over.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Rivers, Jungles & Orangutans

Take the kids into Borneo’s wilderness. You’ll visit the world famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center where you’ll come face to face with these great apes – a moment your family will never forget. Together with a local guide you’ll leave the mainland and sail deeper into the jungle on Borneo’s longest river, Kinabatangan. Nowhere in Borneo can you see as many wild animals together than here. From monkeys to crocodiles, tropical birds to elephants and sun bears to lizards; keep your camera handy at every moment! You’ll sleep in a jungle lodge located deep in the forest between the lush nature of Borneo.

Wildlife & Waterfalls

You’ll head deep into the wilderness with your family and travel into the heart of the jungle where you’ll be staying in a wooden bungalow. All your food and tours are included whilst here, and the restaurant has a great choice of foods for the whole family.

Tabin Bridge Borneo National Park

Over the next couple of days, you’ll set out by jeep and on foot to see monkeys, bats, monitor lizards and tropical birds in a rainbow of colours, amongst a variety of other creatures. Your local guide will take you to a nearby mud volcano, and if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of an elephant or an orangutan, so keep your eyes peeled. On the third morning, you’ll head back to Lahad Datu.


Borneo Beach Break

The next few days are all about quality family time at the beach. You’ll stay in an In Style resort on the outskirts of Kota Kinabalu where the beach goes on for miles, the calm sea offers a refreshing dip and the whole family is catered for with plenty of restaurants and activities. You’ll be transferred from the airport or city hotel to the beach where you’ll spend 3 nights kicking back, doing as much or as little as you like. At the end of your stay, we’ll transfer you back to the airport for your onward flight.
