This trip starts off where the wild things are. You'll cycle to, and spend two nights in, the midst of Malaysia’s largest wildlife reserve, where you are sure to sight monkeys and teeming bird life. Next it’s on to a boat to cruise through the mangroves of the Kinabatagan River and hopefully sight proboscis monkeys, found only in Borneo. The tour will visit two different sanctuaries to see proboscis monkeys and orangutans up close before switching tracks and cycling off road, following part of the Sandakan Death March route. Then, from a position up high with spectacular views of Mount Kinabalu, you'll descend to the stunning coastline and are rewarded for all your efforts with a night at a luxurious resort.

One of the best

I have done many cycle tours around the world. I would rate this one of the best organised and supported. Mr Tham, Maik and the crew did everything they could to ensure that it was a memorable and enjoyable trip. Nothing was too much. They were flexible with the programme and activities to accommodate everybody.

Great way to see a country

Cycling is just the best way to see a country. The back up team and guides were excellent

Fantastic location and excellent guides

Mike was an excellent guide in terms of organisation of cycle routes, being attentive to our needs and level of our skills, ensuring our safety and making sure we saw and experienced a wide range of things. The driver was also faultless in the care and attention provided. We can't praise them highly enough. They were also a pleasure to be with and good fun and contributed hugely to making this one of the best holidays we have been on.

For our level and fitness itineraries were ideal. Appropriately challenging every day leaving us with a great sense of accomplishment but not exhausted. The second last day was the hardest 16 miles we've ever done but I actually enjoyed being tested and we had built up fitness as it was at the end of the trip. Mike had a flexible attitude so would have altered the cycling accordingly if required. The itinerary enabled us to see and experience lots of different things every day of the trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed eating in local restaurants well known to our guides and unlike some other trips we have done neither of us experienced any tummy upsets.

Really good well maintained bikes. No safety concerns.

Fantastic location and an excellent team looking after us. Very well organised. One of the best holidays we have had!
