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.

We have just completed a 4 day tour with David T. He is an amazing guide, nothing is any trouble to him. He made sure we were able to see as much as possible in the time we had with him going out of his way to show us the extra bits. He is passionate about his country, the wild life , the jungle which shows in the way he carry's out his tours. Also a very generous man.His photography is superb and his knowledge like an encyclopaedia. Would highly recommend him to any traveller to Borneo. Thank you David
