For the adventurer who wants to see as much of Sabah as possible (and in two weeks, no less!) but doesn’t want to summit Mt Kinabalu, this is your opportunity.
Go for a dip in the awe-inspiring Wind and Clearwater caves of Gunung Mulu National Park. Opt to go snorkeling on the island haven of Pulau Tiga. Get up close and personal with the orangutans at a rehabilitation center (selfie time!).
Really though, you want Sabah? It’s waiting for you.
Arrive at any time.
Fly to Mulu and transfer to the lodge. Head to the park for a walk through the forest and explore Deer Cave.
In the evening go on a walk in search of bats hunting for insects.
Depart the lodge, board a longboat and travel along the Melinau River to the Wind and Clearwater caves. Explore the caves, take a dip in the crystal clear waters, and enjoy a picnic lunch in the rainforest.
Continue by longboat to Kuala Litut and start the trek to Camp 5, our stop for the night.
Continue trekking the Headhunter Trail to Kuala Terikan and board a boat down the river to Limbang, where you will spend the night.
Start off early for a busy day of travel – by ferry, boat, and private vehicle – to the tropical island of Pulau Tiga. After arriving on the island head out on a trek to a mud volcano and learn more about the region.
Enjoy a free day on this tropical paradise. Opt to go snorkelling, kayaking, or visit Snake Island.
After breakfast, depart for Kuala Penyu by boat where you will transfer to a private vehicle and continue to Kota Kinabalu.
Travel to Tambatuon village and meet the local community. Visit a local farm and gather fresh ingredients for an included cooking class. After lunch, trek to a nearby river, exploring the landscape surrounding the village along the way.
This evening enjoy a traditional dinner with your hosts.
Travel towards Sandakan and continue to the jungle lodge on the Kinabatangan River, Sabah's longest. After settling in head out for a river safari.
After dinner, opt for a guided night walk through the jungle.
Begin the day with a river safari in search of wildlife. After breakfast, visit the nearby oxbow lake with a professional guide and seek out proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, macaques, and gibbons.
Later, visit a nearby cave and, with some luck, spot a wild orangutan. Enjoy another boat cruise along the river to spot more wildlife before returning to the lodge for dinner.
Depart in the morning and travel to Sepilok.
Enjoy a visit to the orangutan rehabilitation centre and the adjacent sun bear conservation centre.
Transfer to Sandakan and continue to Libaran Island by boat. Take a guided tour of the island's turtle hatchery and learn about the turtle conservation program.
Opt to go snorkelling or kayaking with some free time.
After breakfast, depart Libaran Island and travel back to the Sandakan jetty.
From the jetty, transfer to Sandakan airport for a flight to Kota Kinabalu.
Depart at any time.
