Travel to Borneo on a Family Adventure tour through the highlights of this incredible region. Embark on a magical journey to explore the natural wonders of tropical Sabah. 

Learn how orphaned orangutans are rehabilitated back into the wild, swim among colourful fish and spot wildlife in Borneo's steamy jungles. Along the way, make friends with local villagers, try delicious cuisine and enjoy plenty of time to kick back and relax. Round up the family and jump onboard this excellent adventure into the heart of Borneo.


Day 1 Kota Kinabalu
Welcome to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, 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.

Day 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.

Day 4-5 Kinabatangan Jungle Camp
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.

Day 6-7 Sepolik 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 8-9 Pulau Tiga National Park/Kota Kinabalu
Travel by speedboat to 'Survivor Island' and enjoy some beachside bliss at this idyllic 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. Take a boat trip to Snake Island, a breeding ground for the yellow-lipped sea krait.

Day 10-11 Kota Kinabalu
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 before the tour ends.
