Zipping with Zip Borneo at Kiulu

One day activities at Kiulu, Tamparuli
Once again, the Sabah Young Tourism Ambassadors and finalists went for a day trip at Kiulu, Tamparuli. There are three activities that we did that Saturday. Now, let’s see what we have been through ;)

Activity One: Zipping with Zip Borneo
Zip Borneo (Asia Ability) offers several activities but the activity that we get to try was the Flying Fox.

"Whizz across the Kiulu River and back again for a unique double zipline experience! Start by climbing our hair raising 18 meter tower before zipping across to a jungle platform. With the help of our instructors, you will clip into a second cable and woosh your way back to the adventure centre after travelling 320 meters of zipline cable!" - Zip Borneo

It was fun and exciting when we first stepped onto the field. Bear in mind that, "Please stay away from the cables", it's dangerous.

Welcome by Alex, the Expedition Manager whizzed across the Kiulu River and greets us. By the way, it's a nice welcome by showing us how it is like to do flying fox. This is her picture with an incredible pose. I can't do that!

Alex began with the basic safety briefing before we started.One by one, each gadget were clearly explained on how we are going to use it. Alex also demonstrated on how to wear the safety gears and how can we take turns by doing the flying fox. Of course, Alex and the crew helped us to wear the safety gears. 

Now, it’s time. We have to climb the 18 meter tower before zipping across to a jungle platform. With the help of the instructors, they helped us by clipping the safety gears that we are wearingm to a second cable. So we can fly across the river!

Chloe has landed. Safely.
Yep. That is how we did. Pictures left a thousand words. All together, 320 meters of zipline cable of double zipline experience. But please remember not to be too close to the cables while you are doing the flying fox, otherwise, it's all fun and exciting! More pictures on my Facebook.

Zip Borneo provides other activities as well, kindly visit their website for more information.
