Itinerary

 

DAY 1 - KOTA KINABALU TO SELINGAN

Fly from Kota Kinabalu to the coastal town of Sandakan and begin your adventure with a speedboat ride to the beautiful uninhabited island of Selingan, part of the Sulu Sea’s Turtle Conservation Area. Free time to swim and snorkel in search of green and hawksbill turtles. If you are lucky then you may get the chance to observe the unforgettable natural spectacle of hatchlings being released and watch flippers frantically flail as these endearing creatures make their first journey to the sea (please note that we cannot guarantee that turtles will lay eggs on your visit). Stay overnight at the island's simple lodge-style accommodation with shared facilities.

 

DAY 2 - SELINGAN TO KINABATANGAN

Return to Sandakan and spend a magical day at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, established in 1964. Experience the heart-warming sight of these inquisitive young animals feeding and playing. Continue to the emerald-clad jungles of Sukau and enjoy a cruise along Kinabatangan River with the chance to spot local wildlife including proboscis monkeys and 250 species of birds. Overnight at the Kinabatangan Riverside Lodge.

 

DAY 3 - KINABATANGAN TO KOTA KINABALU

Enjoy a relaxing return river cruise to Sandakan before flying back to Kota Kinabalu.
