Nestled between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea, Kota Kinabalu is a great location to start this adventure. If arriving early, why not get into holiday mode with a beach excursion.
Visit the first capital of British North Borneo, Kudat, which is also the island’s northernmost tip. Make friends with the Rungus people and discover some of their daily rituals.
The Kinabalu National Park is among the most important biological sites in the world, with around 1,000 species of orchid, 600 species of fern and 320 species of bird. Soak up the sublime views of looming Mt Kinabalu on a walk through this stunning region.
Traipse across the jungle rooftop on a canopy walk before slipping into the steaming Poring Hot Springs to soothe tired muscles. Continue on to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and fall in love with these beautiful creatures.
Hit the road to Sukau, stopping to visit the Gomantong Caves en route. Continue on to a jungle lodge near Kinabatangan River. Spend free time here relaxing and enjoying the surroundings before spotting local wildlife on a river cruise.
Board a plane back to Kota Kinabalu and spend time relaxing at our beachside location. Toast the end of a great journey with new friends during a farewell dinner.

Classic Borneo, May 2014
absolutely great experience from start to finish. Awang was a wonderful leader and was always ready with extra snippets of information and insight into life in Borneo. He was also fun to be around and considered everyone in the group.
