The Borneo Wildlife Discoverer trip starts from Kuching and ends in Sandakan. It is a wildlife trip that takes 15 days taking you through Lahad Datu, Sepilok, Kinabatangan River and 6 other destinations in Malaysia. Borneo Wildlife Discoverer is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Borneo is home to some of the most diverse and beautiful wildlife in the whole of South East Asia. Starting with a visit to majestic Mt Kinabalu, we then continue to one of the trip highlights - the pristine Danum Valley. A nature lover's paradise, whose beauty and animals are equalled only by Sarawak and the World Heritage Mulu National Park with its immense cave system and the oldest rainforest in the world. We come face to face with Orang-utans at the Sepilok sanctuary, stay at a bamboo longhouse in Sabah on a tea plantation, and finish the trip in the historic port town of Sandakan.

Borneo Wildlife Discover
4 - Very Good
“This is an excellent trip to discover the wildlife and to explore the jungles of Borneo. The trip is well planned from the modern bustling cities of Kuching, Kota Kanabalu and Sandakan to the jungle resorts of Muli and Borneo. The opportunities to see wildlife are many and often you see it in the least expected way for example, a python curled up on the back of a truck in the Hotel Yard!”

“Two weeks of wonderful wildlife, rainforests, enormous caves and much more. We were extremely lucky to spot Proboscis monkeys on our first morning at Bako National Park - and then we saw wild Orang Utans later on our trip.”
