It’s overlooked by Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Malaysia, towering at 4,095 metres. Explore the montane oak-chestnut forest then proceed to Poring to see the lowland dipterocarp forest and soak in the hot springs.
Day 3 Kota Kinabalu – Sandakan – Sukau Village
Today you’re going to Sandakan to visit an orangutan rehabilitation centre, where you can see the animals being fed. Move on to a sun bear conservation centre, where these protected animals are cared for before being released back into the forest.
After lunch, take a cruise up to the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary, passing magnificent mangrove forests bursting with monkeys and birds. Check in to your lodge at Sukau before enjoying a cruise to the Menanggul River and back.
Day 4 Sukau – Danum Valley
Today you’re travelling overland to the awe-inspiring Danum Valley, where you’ll check into your lodge. In the afternoon, follow your guide on a nature trail and enjoy the views from the canopy walkway. In the evening, you can join a night drive in an open-topped truck to spot nocturnal wildlife.
Day 5 Danum Valley
Spend the day enjoying the jungle around you, taking in the Kadazan-Dusun burial site and breath-taking views of the Danum Valley and the Borneo lowland rainforest. You can sign up for water tubing in the Danam River or a further trek along the Segama River.
