On this exclusive tour of North Borneo you will see the colourful diversity of wildlife and birds on the Kinabatangan River, explore the virgin rainforests of the Danum Valley Conservation Area and relax on idyllic, reef fringed, Gaya Island. The tour starts with 3 nights in the Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort, on a pristine beach outside Kota Kinabalu, the attractive capital of Sabah. Travel on to Sepilok, home of a world famous Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre before a wildlife cruise through the Kinabatangan River Delta to see wildlife such as proboscis monkeys and pygmy elephants. Continue overland to the Danum Valley for a stay in an exclusive small lodge set in a pocket of virgin rainforest which is home to a healthy number of wild orangutans.
