For 4 days and 3 nights, our 4th group from Denmark this year experience the last of the adventure activities on their 1-month program that our Downbelow Travel Centre experts personalised for them. Before groups visit Sabah, they are prepared with a set of frequently asked questions to offer answers to any general questions, such as ‘Will I be travelling alone?’ Teamwork is essential to many of the activities especially river crossings of the Crocker Range Salt trails route, and it would defeat the purpose to even participate – so, no, travelling independently is not the goal on our Expedition Borneo program!

From learning to scuba dive on the PADI Open Water Diver course to, snorkelling, kayaking, jungle trekking and beach clean ups, all participants of the 12 groups in the next 10 weeks, gain a much deeper appreciation for the importance of caring for our environment.
Beach clean ups are especially effective, as the physical effort of collecting even what seems a very small amount impresses on the young adventurers’ to contribute their future efforts to correctly dispose litter! It’s especially effective on our groups as they have experienced the beautiful marine environment on SCUBA, and many are also newly qualified divers, which makes them Project AWARE ambassadors!
