At a glance

Enjoy a complete and privileged tour of Borneo’s inimitable wildlife kingdom and prolific natural habitats, book-ended with time on both Borneo and Langkawi’s best shorelines.

Begin with a relaxing stay on the idyllic beaches or coral islands near Kinabalu to include a private cultural tour of Penampang. Then it’s onto Sandakan and Sepilok to see Orang-Utans, Sun Bears and other endangered wildlife up close in the town’s renowned Rehabilitation centre.  You will then journey into the wilderness of the Kinabatangan River to try and spot these animals in the wild along with other prolific fauna in your daily safari expeditions. Your next destination, to really round off your wildlife exploration of Borneo, is the largely uninhabited and pristine rainforest of the Danum Valley to try and spot wild pygmy elephants, the clouded leopard, gibbons, Orang-utans and if you’re really lucky perhaps a Malayan sun bear or Sumatran rhino. Overnight in Kuala Lumpur on your way to the Jewel of Kedah, otherwise known as Langkawi Island, to conclude your trip on these tropical shores.
