3D2N (Private Tour) - Sepilok Orang-Utan/Gomantong Cave/River safari
The Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary lies within the vast floodplain of the Kinabatangan River - one of the longest rivers (560km) in Malaysia. At 27, 000 ha, the Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is part of an important network of conservation areas in the lowlands of eastern Sabah.
Together with existing Forest Reserves, a natural corridor of natural vegetation links the lower tidal reaches of the river (which are fringed with mangrove forests) to the seemingly endless Forest Estates in the upper catchment of the Kinabatangan River. With a rich array of unique habitats, a diverse wildlife fauna and a rich culture and history of the Orang Sungai (in Malay, river people): the Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is by far the most fascinating of natural protected areas in Sabah.
Visiting this area can be the most amazing experience for any nature lover.

Had a fantastic experience with our guide David. Can't praise his knowledge, professionalism and friendliness enough - he even added an extra element to the itinerary knowing that it would be of particular interest to us. His real passion for wildlife and love of guiding really helped make for a truly memorable 3 day tour.
