What you should know

How do I get there?

To get to Telupid you will need a 4WD and it will take about 7 hours' drive from Kota Kinabalu. Your guide will provide transport from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu to Telupid.

To get to Kota Kinabalu you will need to get a flight from any of Malaysian main airports or many of the regional ones. If you are already in Borneo you can travel overland to Kota Kinabalu by bus from a few of the main cities.

Do I need to go with a guide?

There are few places in Borneo that are as 'off-the-beaten-track' for travellers as Telupid Forest Reserve (also known as Deramakot). Telupid Forest Reserve is traditionally only visited by scientists, researchers and government officials. Not only does it not have rangers to provide guiding services to travellers, it also doesn't have a kitchen that produces meals for travellers. The roads leading to Telupid Forest Reserve can also get fairly bumpy and muddy, necessitating a 4WD to get there (and sometimes, we even need a spade to dig a route for the car to pass!).

A guide will provide the 4WD transport from Kota Kinabalu (as the roads can get very bumpy!), bring the food and portable stove to cook your meals and will be able to bring you on jungle walks and safari drives to spot the elusive wildlife hiding in the thick of the forest.

Do I need to train up?

No, you don't need to train up as this will be a fairly relaxing three days. Depending on the weather, there will be a couple of afternoon walks into the jungle but the jungle terrain is fairly flat and mainly leafy underfoot, so it's more like taking a stroll through the park on an autumn's day.

What's the best time to go?
The best months to visit are March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
We recommend the above period because you would have good weather.
How much time do I need?

Three full days as you'll start early in the morning on the first day and get back to Kota Kinabalu late afternoon/early evening on the third day.
