If one is looking for adventure the Sabah Trip rates highly. The diversity included in the trip home-stay- culture---wild-life visiting Turtle Island and climbing Mt Kinabalu are all wonderful experiences. Definitely requires a high-level of fitness for the climb on Mt Kinabalu---especially older tourists.

A diverse experience of the wonderful wildlife that Sabah has to offer. Orangutans, sea turtles, Borneo sun-bear, proboscis monkey, macaques, rafflesia flower, hornbills and other birds, and lots of butterflies. The flora and fauna were similarly diverse and interesting. Sunset and sunrise off the Mount Kinabalu were particular highlights.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Although the climb of Mt Kinabalu was very challenging it was very rewarding. The village home stay gave us an insight into the local culture and the wildlife was amazing.

This is an active trip, I have come back feeling very fit. The only slight disappointment was the Poring Hot springs was not what we were expecting. We thought they would be bubbling like a spa to soothe our weary muscles. However the waterfalls and the canopy were lovely. In 12 days we experienced a huge amount, especially for my first trip to Asia ever. The highlight was conquering Mt Kinabalu!

This trip is a great mixture of adventure, wildlife and culture. I felt that what I experienced on this trip was the tip of the iceberg that Boreno has to offer and will be definitely back again. Especially with you and the tour leader leading the way. This trip was my first time climbing a mountain and it has started the bug to find other mountains to conquer!

Evenings are still warm so only need jumper/fleece for the mountain. Need plenty of insect repellent!
