In Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, it’s one of the saddest and ugliest sights when there is rubbish strewn all over such a beautiful paradise as our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island, TAR marine park, but campers attack marine debris with Downbelow!

 For a once-in-a-lifetime summer holiday experience in a 1-month adventure around Borneo, Camps International groups of students travel the exotic island in the South China Sea to learn more about the efforts of protecting and preserving its irreplaceable resource: nature!

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!

Get in touch with our Sabah Travel Centre experts who will arrange a suitable program for your travelling group to contribute to the conservation of Sabah, Borneo!

Groups of Camps International adventurers’ arrive at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre to receive a unique education, such as the benefit of protecting and preserving mangrove forests!

The 2nd group (‘Tembikai’ – watermelon in Malay) and the 3rd group (‘Nanas’ – pineapple in Malay) have just completed their camping experience under the supervision of our island staff team of PADI professionals!

In the space of a week, the two groups camped at the island (at separate times), and all participants tried the exciting sport of scuba diving for the first time ever! Their adventure program includes exploring Sabah through various activities, one of them being the opportunity to qualify as a PADI Open Water diver.

For those who, for any reason, do not wish to continue their diver education to certify, they may go kayaking – a very leisurely activity, in which one of our dedicated and experienced PADI guides will lead a small ‘fleet’ of kayakers to the mangrove forest in TAR marine park.

There’s plenty of nature all around – hornbills, macaques, and maybe jungle pigs if they’re lucky! They’re free to ask more questions of their guides’ insightful information on the local environment!

The groups leaving with a positive impression of Sabah is great, but leaving with such a deep appreciation of the environment to be inspired to contribute in future is the goal of our unique education program!
