The biggest highlight in Sabah for most of our guests is a visit to Sukau Rainforest Lodge, recognised by National Geographic as a Unique Lodge of the World and winner of Sabah's Best Nature Lodge in addition to numerous other international awards. It is here that you will get to experience and if you're lucky, come face to face with Sabah's endangered wildlife such as the Orang Utan and the Borneo Pygmy elephant in the wild. Indulge yourself by staying three nights here and you'll be glad you did. Sukau is by far the easiest place to view animals in the wild and is a must visit for wildlife enthusiasts, nature lovers and families alike.
For nature lovers, our personal recommendations are tours to Selingan Island, Danum Valley and Tabin Wildlife Sanctuary. Hardy adventure travellers would also love our custom designed treks to Maliau Basin and the Crocker Range.
Devoted birdwatchers will be thrilled by the many endemic species of Bornean birds found in their natural habitats. We have specialised Birding tours accompanied by our world class birding guides.
Apart from the rainforests, Sabah is a haven for ardent divers. Numerous diving locations such as the world renowned Sipadan Island and the surrounding islands and also Langkayan Island provides a diving experience that has been repeatedly rated one of the best dive spots in the world. As for the adventurers, climbing Mount Kinabalu is a must do activity in Sabah. Mount Kinabalu is the highest peak between the Himalayas and Papua New Guinea and stands at 4095m tall with breathtakingly gorgeous sunrises and serenely beautiful when shrouded in clouds.
Surrounded by azure and crystal clear oceans, Sabah is blessed with long white sandy beaches and a warm pleasant climate. Numerous white sandy islands dot the coast, amongst them the famous Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Marine Park which is just a stone throw away from Kota Kinabalu or stay at any one of our 5 star Beach Resorts.
Borneo is also home to the largest cave system,the Mulu National Park in Sarawak. If you're thinking of conquering the pinnacles here, be prepared physically as this trek and climb, though but a day's trip, will challenge you to your limits.

In short, Borneo has what it takes to be your favorite holiday destination.
