Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 3 - Kuala Lumpur

Arrive into Kuala Lumpur, where you will be greeted and transferred to your chosen Kuala Lumpur Hotel for a three night stay in the impressive city. Check into your room and freshen up before exploring the city, which is easy on foot or by public transport. For a more unique experience ask your consultant about our guided tour to help you get the most out of your time in Kuala Lumpur.

Day 4 to 5 - Cameron Highlands

This morning an air conditioned car will be delivered to your hotel for an easy drive north to the Cameron Highlands. Malaysia’s roads are well signed and maintained and the scenery is stunning. Enjoy one of our beautiful Cameron Highland Hotels for two nights as a base for exploring the region, famous for its forests and tea plantations.

Day 6 to 8 - Penang

Continue your drive to the holiday island of Penang – there is a bridge onto the island – for a three night stay at your chosen Penang Hotel. With the independence of your own car, you can explore the island at your own pace, including a trip to historic Georgetown and a visit to Penang Hill for some spectacular views.

Day 9 - Arrive in Sandakan

Leave your car at Penang airport and fly to Sandakan on the Island of Borneo. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to the Four Points by Sheraton for one night. Check into your room and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 10 to 11 - Borneo Wildlife Experience

In the morning you will join a small group on our Borneo Wildlife Experience. The first night is spent on Selingan Island where there will be time to swim in the sea or snorkel during the day. In the evening you’ll have the opportunity to see scores of wild turtles as they make their way up the beach to lay their eggs. You’ll have the chance to learn about these reptiles and perhaps release some young ones into the sea.

The following day you will return to Sandakan and head to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre to learn about these wonderful creatures. After watching them feed you’ll journey through the rainforest to Sukau and then travel down the river to your lodge right on the water’s edge. In the afternoon head out by boat to spot wildlife; if you’re lucky you’ll see more orangutans in the wild, some rare proboscis monkey and more besides. This leisurely wildlife cruise really gives you a unique insight into this stunning region of Borneo.

Day 12 - Farewell

After a morning exploring the Kinabatangan area, the group will make its way back to Sandakan. Time permitting you may be able to visit the impressive Gomantong Cave. Say a fond farewell to Malaysia as you are transferred to Sandakan airport for your flight back to the UK.
