BORNEO ISLAND AND WILDLIFE TOUR

Borneo, a giant, rugged island in Southeast Asia’s Malay Archipelago, is shared by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the tiny nation of Brunei. It’s known for its beaches and ancient, biodiverse rainforest, home to wildlife including orangutans and clouded leopards. In Sabah is 4,095m-tall Mount Kinabalu, the island’s highest peak, and, offshore, the famed dive site Sipadan Island.

DAY 2

MANTANANI ISLAND + KAWA KAWA RIVER CRUIS

Plunge into the clear blue waters of Mantanani Island "美人鱼岛" and experience what it feels like to be in a truly tropical utopia. Only an hour drive from the Sabah’s state capital, Kota Kinabalu, Mantanani is a group of three isolated islands that shimmers northwest of Kota Belud. These pristine islands are a 60 minute boat ride from the mainland, depending on sea conditions. Dreamily picturesque with a coma of white sandy shores that summons shady palm trees and a blue sky halo, Mantanani is an oasis for snorkeling, scuba-diving and island-hopping… or for the simple luxury of little island naps. One of the many highlights that attracts both the local and the avid traveler would be the Sea Cow spottings. Sea Cows, also locally known as Dugongs, resides in the island but they are shy mammals with a population that is on the brink of extinction. It might just be your lucky day if you are able to spot one on Mantanani! Kawa Kawa, located about 112km northeast of Kota Kinabalu, is accessible in an hour and a half by land. Situated at Kota Belud and surrounded by paddy fields and mangrove forests, the quaint little village of Kawa Kawa is enchanting at first sight. Sungai Tempasuk thrives along Kawa Kawa’s mangrove habitat forming an enticing playground for the Proboscis Monkeys, who swing on the high branches of the trees. This natural oasis, little touched by men and commercial tourism, has not lost its primitive wildness, and is best suited for nature and wildlife lovers. Here is your best chance to capture shots of the moving animals in the wild. Don’t forget your binoculars and your cameras! Read more

Once you approach village entrance, be welcomed by the sight of ancient Borneo architecture, and take a step back in time of days of old. Be dazzled by the authentic wooden towers, distinct wooden houses and structures decorated by nature. You will be greeted by warm smiles and welcomes, and be given the opportunity to experience the different lifestyles of different indigenous tribes of Sabah (Dusun / Rungus / Murut / Bajau / Lundayeh). Blend in and see the culture like it really is.The houses here are all built by generations of Sabah native tribesmen, and are different in terms of style and design, each representing their own tribe. Have a go at blowpipe making, fire-starting, and understand tribal tattoos to learn the mythical meanings behind each symbol. Also not forgetting are the various Sabahan delicacies that you will get to try, like the Montoku or rice wine, steamed rice and fish as well as vegetables cooked using bamboo shoots. Embrace the warm hospitality and partake in the cultural performances (Bamboo Dance) by the tribe representatives, and end your tour with a delicious home-cooked authentic Sabahan meal, before you bid the village farewell, and back to hotel Read more
