Full Itinerary

Day 1: Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre

Sukau Rainforest Lodge in Sukau

You’ll be greeted upon your arrival at Sandakan Airport by our friendly Guide and Captains. Get acquainted before we make our way to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre where you’ll learn about the plight of the Orang Utan and see firsthand the conservation efforts. We proceed to watch a video show about the plight of the Orang Utans and the rehabilitation efforts ongoing at the Centre. Walk ten minutes through the rainforest on wooden boardwalks to witness the feeding of the orang utans at 1000hrs then we continue to the newly completed enclosed nursery area for young orang utans. If the Orang Utans are feeling particularly friendly, you may even get the chance to get up close to the Orang Utan so be sure to hang onto your belongings. Thereafter visit the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre to learn about conservation of the world’s smallest bear.

After lunch, we head to the Sandakan jetty where we’ll embark on a Borneo Eco Tours speedboat for a 2.5 hours boat journey up the Kinabatangan River to the multi awards winning Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Don’t worry as the ride is not choppy and it won’t be just boat ride as there will be opportunities along the way to view wildlife and birds, and if you’re lucky, even the shy Bornean Pygmy Elephants. Cool down with a refreshing drink and cold towel upon arrival while our friendly manager helps you check-in. Take a few moments to savor afternoon tea before we head out into the wild on your first river safari.

Every boat is equipped with eco friendly outboard engines (used along the main river where the current is strong) and electric motor (used during wildlife viewing in the small tributaries) in search of wildlife and birds. Take loads of photographs as the wildlife extravaganza puts on a show. Return for a solar heated hot shower after sunset before enjoying a candle light buffet dinner overlooking the mighty river. Be sure to try on our in-house Sarongs (local wear) which is cooling and helps keep away any mozzies. Stay overnight at the Sukau Rainforest Lodge.

There is also a different free activity everyday so be sure to ask us. After afternoon tea, we head out onto the river once again in search of more wildlife.
