Jungle wildlife and island tribes

Dense green rainforest and steep-sided highlands pepper the adventurous setting of Borneo. Flanked by blue-green waters and home to wildlife sanctuaries and indigenous tribes, there’s much to enjoy on the world’s third largest island. From cosmopolitan Sandakan, journey to the hilltop Puu Jih Shih Temple for superb views across Sandakan Bay, get insights into the city’s colonial-era life at Agnes Keith House, and sail down the Kinabatangan River through the mangrove forests. Meet the island’s most famous residents at Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre, where you can observe man's closest relative, the orang-utan, being rehabilitated to return to their natural habitat.
