On this two day trip to Selingan Island you will experience two magical wildlife moments when Green turtles lay their eggs and the babies make a dash for the sea and Orang Utans play in a wildlife sanctuary. This short but fascinating trip makes a great add on to any holiday in Borneo. Beginning and ending in Kota Kinabalu, you travel to the island by boat and spend a memorable time with a ranger on the beach as the turtles hatch in the sands and the next day get up close to the magnificent Oran Utans.
You are met at your hotel in Kota Kinabalu and driven to the airport for the short flight to Sandakan. On arrival you will be met and taken by speedboat to Selingen Island. Check in at your hotel and have lunch and enjoy a relaxing afternoon soaking up the tropical sun, swimming or snorkelling. After dinner you join a ranger and go to the beach to watch the Green turtles laying their eggs, mothers being tagged, and babies being released into the sea. Overnight Selingen Island.
Another wildlife delight after breakfast today when you are taken by boat back to Sandakan to to visit the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary. See the animals playing and feeding before returning to Sandakan Town where you enjoy lunch before being taken on a guided tour. Later you are driven back to the airport to catch your retuen flight to Kota Kinabalu where the tour comes to an end and you can continue your holiday on the lovely island of Borneo.
