Day 2 Kota Kinabalu to Kudasang
Tuck into a home cooked lunch, then stretch your legs with a stroll through the unspoiled wilderness of Mt Kinabalu National Park. There are many walking trails where you can bird watch and perhaps explore the Mt Kinabalu Botanical Garden, an excellent showcase of the diverse plant life on the mountain.
Days 3-4 Kudasang to the Kinabatangan River
Continue to your jungle lodge, located next to the Kinabatangan River, an ideal place to relax and take in the lush surrounds. In the afternoon take a river cruise, keeping your eyes peeled for wild elephants, crocodiles, proboscis monkeys and orangutans. On day four take a walk to an indigenous community to discover some of Borneo’s diverse cultural heritage.

Today fly to Kota Kinabalu before a short boat ride to Manukan Island. The rest of day seven is free for you to swim or explore the island at your leisure.
