Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival at Tabin & Afternoon Walk

Your driver will collect you and your clan from the airport and will drop you off at your jungle bungalow, nestled deep in the Tabin National Park. Don’t worry,  the accommodation is family-friendly, with air-conditioning and hot water. Once you’ve freshened up and had a bite to eat, it’s time to explore this vast jungle as you head out with a guide on a jeep safari. The kids are sure to have fun spotting all of the wildlife here and do make sure you’ve got your camera at the ready.

Jungle lodges in Borneo

Lurking in the forest are monkeys, elephants, birds, orangutans and bats amongst others. You’ll also pass a mud volcano where animals can regularly be spotted filling up on minerals from the mud. If the kids fancy it, they can take a mud bath, it’s meant to be really good for the skin. It’s then time to head back for dinner, before grabbing your torches for the night walk. Your guide will point out all the different creatures in the moonlight, and you’ll be able to see the glow of the fireflies too.

Exploring the Jungle & Waterfall Swim

This morning, you’ll be greeted with the sounds of the jungle, and if you can manage to get the kids out of bed early, then you’ve got time for a pre-breakfast walk. After a filling breakfast, you’ll head back out with your guide, and it’s a good idea to put your swimming stuff on under your clothes.

Young boys trekking in jungle

As you trek through the jungle, you’ll start to hear the sounds of flowing water and before you know it you’ll find yourself at a waterfall. Jump in with the kids, have a splash about and cool yourself down before walking back to the jeep. You’re sure to have built up a huge appetite by this point, and luckily lunch will be waiting for you back at the resort. The rest of the day is free to spend as you wish.

Departure from Tabin

Today marks the end of your jungle adventure, and you’ve got time to head out to grab a few last minute snaps before heading back into civilisation (the kids will be delighted to get reconnected to the wifi). Your driver will take you back to Lahad Datu and from here you can travel onto the beach for some well-deserved relaxation.
