Introduce your loved ones to the wonderful wildlife of Borneo on this succinct hand-picked itinerary.

Your exciting family adventure kick starts in Sandakan where you will get up close to orphaned orangutans at the famous Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre. Before long you’ll be off on a cruise deep into the wilderness of the Kinabatangan River. Here you can spend your time spotting Borneo’s most fascinating and endangered species, from Sun Bears to Pygmy Elephants, in their natural, untamed habitat.

A quick flight later and you and your family will be in the vibrant city of Kota Kinabalu. These last few days are devoted to hopping from island to island where a dazzling underwater world awaits. If you still have it, use up the rest of your energy rafting, swimming and snorkelling, while those with relaxation on their mind can while away the days lazing on sun-drenched beaches.
