Malaysia and Borneo are multi-cultural destinations where natural beauty and astounding national parks meet cosmopolitan cities and culinary sensations. You’ll be captivated by their breathtaking natural wonders and ancient traditions. Our journey starts in Kuala Lumpur with some city sightseeing, before moving on to explore the glorious Cameron Highlands, the largest and best known tea station in the region with remarkable scenery. We'll follow a jungle trail in the world's oldest National Park, Taman Negara. You'll enjoy its hidden secrets during a night walk where you can appreciate its tropical beauty and perhaps encounter the native wildlife. Another adventurous day will see us take a boat to the local village of the Asli of Batek Tribe to discover their traditions and enjoy a lunch sampling their delicious food.

Flying to Kota Kinabalu, you may choose to climb Mount Kinabalu (over 4000m) to be rewarded with remarkable panoramic views (the walk is above the holiday’s grade, and at additional cost, please ask our sales team for a quote if you wish to include this walk). In Sabah we find jungles, mountains, rivers, fauna and flora. In Sandakan we meet with endangered orang-utans in the semi wild at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre. We take a trip to the limestone hills of the Batu Tuluq Caves and visit the local Orang Sungei community.
