Explore Borneo's tropical playground - the Sabah region
Explore a mystical land of incredible natural beauty and rare wildlife on this Sabah Adventure tour. With its collection of exotic animals, ancient traditions, hot springs, tribal villages, loveable orangutans and incredible views, Sabah has something for everyone. Experience the very best of this part of Borneo - climbing Mt Kinabalu, watching elusive sea turtles lay their eggs upon Turtle Beach and sharing laughs with local village hosts - every minute of this incredible adventure will stay with you for life.
Experience next-level vistas from the top of Mt Kinabalu - well worth the early morning and effort to reach the summit by sunrise.
Visits an orangutan sanctuary to spend some special time in the company of these endangered 'men of the forest'.
Witness nature at its most beautiful with a night on Turtle island where you can watch turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.
Cruise down the Kinabatangan river and search for wildlife in this rich and unique jungle ecosystem.
Climbing Mt Kinabalu is a challenge that shouldn't be underestimated. Elevation is above 2800m and we rise early to summit in the dark in order to be able to witness the sunrise. It's an unforgettable climb for sure, but you'll need to have an excellent level of fitness to complete it.
There are strict luggage limits of maximum 7kg for carry on and 15 kg for check in luggage on our internal flight. Excess luggage will incur extra fees payable to the airline. Packing light is recommended anyway - it means less to carry on and off transport and accommodation.
You'll need to pack some specific items for this trip - check the Packing List for more details so you are prepared.
You will get to experience a wide range of accommodation types on this trip – shared dormitory rooms in hostels, a homestay, guesthouses, jungle lodge and hotels. Some may be a little more basic than our standard hotels, but their unique locations and close proximity to nature is what makes them special.
This trip has a focus on nature and wildlife - definitely one for those who enjoy being outdoors.

An excellent trip with a wide range of activities and some great surprises. I would recommend visiting the orangutan sanctuary in the afternoon rather than the morning as it was less busy, cooler and we saw more.
