Why Book this tour
This tour follows a classic route through Sabah on Borneo. This is a must see destination for wildlife lovers as the region is rich and diverse with flora and fauna. Our trip also includes the climb of Mount Kinabalu as well as time to relax and rejuvenate on Borneo's stunning white sand beaches.
