Family Borneo Explorer (14 days)

The rainforests of Borneo are some of the most bio-diverse on the planet, and home of the orang-utan, pygmy elephant and the curious-looking proboscis monkey to name a few. This easy-paced tour starts with a direct flight to Kuala Lumpur, and a two night stopover in a family-friendly hotel to rest and explore the Malaysian capital. Once refreshed it’s time to fly to the interior of Borneo and start your wildlife adventures with a two-night stay at Sepilok, home to the famous orangutan rehabilitation centre. Spend a day visiting the sanctuary at feeding time to see these magnificent creatures up close, and explore the nearby sun bear reserve and informative rainforest discovery centre where it is possible to see flying squirrels from the canopy walkway at dusk. You will then take an exhilarating boat journey up the Kinabatangan River to the small jungle town of Sukau. Stay for 2-nights in a riverside lodge located in an important wildlife corridor which is one of the best places in the whole of Asia to spot wildlife. Explore the waterways and ox bow lakes by boat in search of wildlife and birds, and set off on nature hikes through the rainforest to watering holes often frequented by larger mammals. After your wildlife adventures take a short flight to Kota Kinabalu to finish the trip with a relaxing 5-night stay at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria, one of Southeast Asia’s most popular family beach resorts.
