About the Tour:

There is something to be said about going to a destination where you’re the only one around. Our Kinabalu Park Camping experience offers you exactly that. This is an off the radar location that is sure to take you away from the crowds.

We pick you up in Kota Kinabalu and bring you to this off the beaten path location for a 3 day adventure in the beautiful natural setting provided by Kinabalu National Park.

On the way, we’ll stop off for a bit in Sayap village. This quaint, out of the way village will give you a taste of rural life in Borneo.

After Sayap village, we’ll continue into the park until the road ends at Sayap Substation. The substation will be your campground for the next two nights and is equipped with basic facilities.

Your time in Kinabalu National Park won’t lack adventure. Our knowledgeable guide will get you out in the park to spot birds and wildlife, both during the day and at night.

You’ll be surrounded by amazing rainforest filled with endemic plants and animals, some which only exist within the park. Look out for unique orchids and pitcher plants.

If that’s not enough, our guide will guide you to the Kemantis waterfall. This wonderful, rarely visited waterfall is a must see.
