Highlights

 

To truly experience Borneo is to immerse yourself in the stunning lush jungle home to some of the world’s most exquisite wildlife. Thanks to ongoing conservation projects, mostly funded by tourism, a lot of Borneo’s magical jungles remained untouched and offer some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth. 

Borneo is a melting pot of religions, cuisines, cultures, languages and species and there is little not to be completely enchanted by if you are lucky enough to visit.

If thoughts of pristine nature, cultural riches and incredible orangutans in their natural environment isn’t enough to convince you to see this captivating country, knowing that your entire trip is taken care of by us is sure to. 

Your package includes return international flights, accommodation, transfers, dedicated transportation, breakfast daily plus other meals, professional guide, in-depth sightseeing and more.

See Inclusions for more.

 
 

Day 1: Australia –airplane-takeoff – Sandakan – Sepilok, Borneo                   

Today, depart Australia for your amazing holiday to Borneo. Upon arrival you will be met at Sandakan airport and transferred to Sepilok Jungle Resort.

Please note: Some flights might depart 1 day prior.

Day 2: Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre – Sun Bear Conservation Centre – Rainforest Discovery Centre (B,L,D)

This morning we visit Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in time for the morning feeding and learn about the conservation and rehabilitation efforts of Sepilok. Witness the majestic Orangutan swing through the forest towards the feeding platform and watch as these beautiful creatures enjoy their breakfast. Afterwards we make a visit to see the World’s smallest bear in their natural habitat at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre and the exotic flora and fauna at the Rainforest Discovery Centre. Stroll through the jungle and take an exhilarating canopy walkway above the rainforest. In the afternoon you have the option to re-visit the orang-utans at their afternoon feeding. Evening at leisure in the Jungle Resort.

Day 3: Sepilok – Libaran Island cruise-icon (B,L,D)

After breakfast we transfer to the Sandakan Jetty and board the boat to Libaran Island.

The trip takes around 30 minutes and on arrival you will check in and enjoy free time to explore this beautiful quiet island, relax on the decking or take a stroll along the long stretch of sandy beach. After lunch we take a guided walk through a local village and learn about their lifestyle. At 6:00pm there will be a briefing about the turtle’s conservation program, followed by a visit to the hatchery and an opportunity to release baby turtles back to the Sulu Sea. Have dinner and watch a documentary, then, a waiting game for the ranger call for the mother turtle sighting. If we are lucky enough we will witness mother turtles coming to shore to lay their eggs in the sand.

Day 4: Libaran Island – Gomantong Cave – Bilit, Kinabantangan River (B,L,D)

Back to the mainland we go this morning. Once back in Sandakan we drive overland to our adventure lodge on the banks of the Kinabatangan River. On the way, visit Gomantong cave, the largest bird’s nest and limestone cave in Sabah. On arrival into Bilit we have a spot of lunch before jumping on our first wildlife boat cruise down the river. Keep your eyes peeled for wild orangutans, Proboscis monkeys, Pygmy Elephants and lots of exotic birdlife! Evening free at leisure or take an optional guided night jungle walk to spot the nocturnal wildlife.

Optional Tour – Night Walk

Day 5: Bilit, Kinabatangan River – Tree Planting Activity cruise-icon (B,L,D)

Early morning start as we cruise along the Kinabatangan River at 6:00am in search for more wild and wonderful wildlife, then back to the lodge for breakfast. After breakfast we visit a local village and take part in a tree planting activity to do our part for the conservation of the jungle. Then we take a guided jungle walk through riverine forest and search for bird life. Trek back to Bilit Lodge, freshen up, have lunch and enjoy the second river cruise of the day in search for more wildlife. Spend the evening at leisure enjoying a cold beer and sharing your photos from the day with fellow travellers.

Day 6: Bilit – Sandakan – Fisherman’s Village cruise-icon (B,L,D)

After breakfast, we depart Bilit by 8:30am and return to Sandakan. Have lunch in the hotel and have some free time to relax. At 4:15pm we take an evening excursion to visit a local fisherman’s village. Enjoy a welcome drink and snacks while the locals explain about the village and how they live. We take a boat cruise through the mangrove forests dropping some fish/crab traps along the river and see if we are lucky to get some for the dinner. As it gets darker, we will be able to see the thousands of fire flies lighting up the trees all around us, a truly magical sight. End with a local dinner (of hopefully crab), then, transfer back to hotel for your overnight stay.

Day 7: Sandakan – Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary – Sandakan War Memorial (B,L,D)

Visit to Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary to see the morning feeding (11:30am). Proboscis monkeys are only found in Sabah and they are very distinctive with their huge weird noses. In the Proboscis monkey world, the bigger the males noses are, the more attractive to the females they are! After Labuk Bay, we go for local lunch at a restaurant and continue with Sandakan Nature City Tour in the afternoon. The tour includes the Sandakan War Memorial Park, Buddhist Temple, St. Michael’s Church, Agnes Keith Museum and Central Market.
