Malaysia for Nature Lovers
Untamed Borneo: Through the Jungles and History in Malaysia

Tour Description: Guided

Dense jungles, wild animals and exotic flora will be your introduction to Borneo on this cycling holiday. Rivers, mountains, and beaches follow as you bike on dirt and tarmac roads across the north of Borneo.

You’ll spend two nights in Malaysia’s largest wildlife reserve, where more than 220 species of bird life teems, and explore the active mud volcanoes. You’ll spend an afternoon sighting proboscis monkeys, found only in Borneo, during a boat ride through the mangrove trees of the Kinabatagan River. Then you will visit the sanctuaries for proboscis and orangutans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Center, where the animals learn to return to jungle life.

You’ll switch gears and find yourself in the footsteps of allied POWs, forced to walk in a series of marches from January to June 1945 from their camp in Sandakan to the small settlement of Ranau. Of the 2,400 prisoners, 6 Australians survived. Our journey will bear little resemblance to what the prisoners went through as you bike through small hamlets along old logging roads through palm plantations.

As you approach majestic Mount Kinabalu, the terrain becomes hillier and a bit more challenging. You’ll ride through orchards, pine forests and a tea plantation. From your position up high with spectacular views of Mount Kinabalu you’ll descend to the stunning coastline and be rewarded for all your effort with a night at the luxurious Rasa Ria Spa Resort.

This trip has it all: unique flora and fauna, spectacular mountain scenery, a beautiful beach and, of course, great cycling!

The minimum age for this tour is 18.

A note about weather: Borneo has an equatorial climate, which is hot and humid year-round. Average daily temperatures are around 30° Celsius and the humidity can be high. Rain is also fairly common though these tours are timed to avoid the monsoon season.
