tour details

Immerse yourself in Tanjung Datu – its white sandy beaches are undisturbed, the corals offshore are untouched & the forest trails are virtually untrodden. You’ll admire its rich & varied animal life and see its role as a marine turtle nesting site. You’ll journey by car and boat to Tanjung Datu National Park & learn about its turtle conservation programme. Later, venture onto the forest trails to explore this beautiful national park & keep an eye out to spot some of the various wildlife species that inhabit the forest. You’ll then be able to take a night walk or relax in the evening. Next, you may choose to venture on another trail or go snorkelling in the crystal clear waters to see colourful corals and marine life. On your last day you’ll be able to go snorkelling once more before departing from the park.
