Seven Night Borneo Tour Highlights
Welcome to Borneo
Home to some of the world’s richest ecosystems, the island of Borneo is split between three countries – Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Sabah and Sarawak are the two states that make up Malaysian Borneo and they are packed to the brim, bursting with culture, wildlife, jungle and beaches.
As captivating a destination as Borneo is, it remains wonderfully off-the-beaten-track meaning that the local habitats and wildlife are untouched by modernism. You can enjoy the cosmopolitan charms of the city of Kota Kinabalu, relax on the softest white sand, explore easily accessible tracts of virgin rainforest, discover the world’s largest caves and meet the ‘old men of the forest’ – orangutans. On top of all this Borneo is home to half of all the known plant and animal species in the world and to a fascinating ancient tribal culture that is still very much alive. For a truly memorable adventure, Borneo is the place to go.
Half Day Tour of Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu, the glistening jewel of Malaysia, is a dynamic, multicultural city whose exuberance will delight you. During your half day tour, you’ll head to Phu Tho Se Chinese Temple, the Sabah State Mosque (one of the most outstanding pieces of architecture in Sabah) and the Sabah Museum, home to fine exhibits that chronicle Sabah’s fascinating historical past and rich cultural heritage.
Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary
During your time in Borneo, you will have the incredible opportunity to visit the renowned Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, a rehabilitation centre that strives to reintroduce captive orangutans back into the wild. Here, you’ll be able to observe orangutans at their feeding stations in the rainforest and, if the nursery is open, witness baby orangutans playing amongst themselves. We promise, this is a very special moment that you will keep with you forever.
From Sandakan, embark on a boat cruise up the Lower Kinabatangan River, passing pristine mangrove forests in search of wildlife. These watery forests are unlike the forests we know and are a haven for all manor of strange and beautiful creatures. Look out for the Proboscis Monkey with its unusually long nose that can only be found in the rainforests of Borneo, or keep your eyes peeled of an array of colourful species of bird, including the Bornean bristlehead, Rhinoceros hornbill, woodpeckers and much more.
Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre
Visit the Borean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, where over 30 sun bears live in the bear house and outdoor enclosures. The centre rescues captured sun bears and is involved in the conversation, welfare rehabilitation and education of sun bears. Sun bears are one of the most recognisable species who inhabit the rainforests of Borneo, and you’ll get the special opportunity to see the incredible work that the centre puts into the welfare of the species.
