Borneo is truly amazing and provides some of the most memorable and exciting experiences possible on any birding tour. We followed the standard circuit from Mount Kinabalu, Sepilok, Kinabatangan River and finishing at the wonderful Danum Valley, plus a few extra sites along the way! There were so many highlights as you can see from the list of birds above but the stunning Whitehead’s Broadbill staring back at us from a mossy branch on Mount Kinabalu will live long in the memory. The boardwalk that takes us across the canopy at Sepilok produced our first looks at Orang-utan, as well as a Black-crowned Pitta that flew up to our lofty vantage point to take a look at us. Several boat trips along the Kinabatangan River gave us access to numerous tributaries and creeks where Storm’s Stork and Wrinkled Hornbills paraded alongside bizarre-looking Proboscis Monkeys. And then we enjoyed a pitta-fest at the incredible Danum Valley to round off another magical Sabah tour. You can view our next tour itinerary here - Borneo Tour Itinerary 2019
