Borneo Family Adventure Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Kota Kinabalu

Welcome to Kota Kinabalu, capital of Sabah State, a place where ancient traditions and exotic wildlife thrive. Choose to visit the Monsopiad Cultural Village to tour the mystical House of Skulls and learn about ancient legends. The nearby islands are great for swimming and snorkelling.

Days 2-3 Kinabalu National Park

Get a taste of Borneo's mountain life heading into Kinabalu National Park, home to Borneo's highest peak Mt Kinabalu. Hit walking trails, explore waterfalls and enjoy a relaxing soak in the thermal pools at Poring Hot Springs. Perhaps visit a butterfly farm or take to the treetops on a canopy walk.

Days 4-5 Kinabatangan Jungle Camp/Homestay

A local homestay provides the opportunity to interact with villagers, learn about their unique way of life and how they contribute to the preservation of Borneo's ecosystem. Spend a night camping in the jungle, spotting wildlife such as macaques, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles and perhaps even wild orangutans.

Days 6-7 Sepilok Orangutan Reserve

Visit the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary to see these cheeky creatures feeding and playing. The following day, meet the residents of the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre where orphaned orangutans are cared for before being released back into the wild. Take a walk along jungle trails and try to spot these 'men of the forest' in their natural habitat.

Day 8 Pulau Tiga National Park

Enjoy an entire day of beachside bliss at an idyllic island getaway. Swim in the clear, turquoise waters or snorkel among colourful fish and sea turtles. Visit one of the nearby bubbling mud volcanoes or simply relax on one of Borneo's white-sand beaches.

Days 9-11 Kota Kinabalu

Take a boat trip to Snake Island, a breeding ground for the yellow-lipped sea krait, then return to Borneo's mainland and stay at a seaside guesthouse. There are plenty of optional activities on offer here - why not picnic on a nearby island, soak up some sun on the beach or hire a kayak to explore the coastline.
