Summary of The Day: Get out of the city for a day to discover the local culture of the Kadazan tribe in the village of Babagon.
After picking you up from your hotel we'll head out on a scenic uphill drive along the road to the interior of Tambunan, the heartland of the Kadazan tribe. Of the 30 plus tribes in Sabah, they are one of the largest who are mainly Catholic and concentrate in the interior and west coast of Sabah.
Upon arrival, we'll cross the Moyog River either by car or on foot along a short suspension bridge built for this purpose. Enjoy the fresh crystal clear shallow water of this unspoiled river. This section of the river also has thousands of tropical fish which you are welcome to feed them and you may enjoy a fish massage on your feet. The authority only allows harvesting of this fish once a year and the harvest will be shared equally among the villagers.
This village depends on farming of fruits and vegetable for a living and on a day with good weather, you may visit their farms.
The houses in the village are made of traditional materials such as local timber and bamboo. They are constructed on stilt with a large verandah and many big windows to keep the interior of the house cool. The villagers also keep many animals such as chickens, ducks, pigs and birds mainly for domestic consumption.
Enjoy a picnic lunch under a shaded trees next to the river and in the tranquil atmosphere of this unique village setting. You are welcome to take a dip in this refreshing water and enjoy this unique Borneo experience of the most unusual kind.
We'll return to your hotel by 3:00pm.
