Arrive Sandakan airport this morning and head straight to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center, arriving just in time for feeding. Watch these amazing animals as they learn to survive in their natural habitat after being left orphaned and rescued from the wild. Next, travel through the rolling countryside to Sandakan jetty and continue through the jungle by a river boat to Sukau, located in the Kinabatangan river basin. After settling into your lodge, spend the afternoon at leisure before going in search of the indigenous birds and the rare proboscis monkeys on a leisurely cruise down the river. Today lunch and dinner will be included.
Leave Sukau behind and travel by road to Sandakan, stopping en-route at the giant Gomantong Cave. Take a short walk to the opening cavern and explore the cave system on a boardwalk. The cave has been long renowned for its swiftlet nests, which are harvested sustainably each year to make the Chinese delicacy of bird’s nest soup. Arriving Sandakan, enjoy a short sightseeing tour of the city, visiting the central market, water village and a Buddhist temple. Later, transfer back to the airport for your onward flight. Today breakfast and lunch will be included.
