Zip Borneo is a company that specialises in adventure, team building and personnel development courses by incorporating the facilities at their adventure center situated just under an hours drive from the city of Kota Kinabalu, in the beautiful valleys of the Crocker range. Located on a grassy field bordering the Kuilu River and surrounded by local farms and secondary forest, it’s the ideal base camp for many of their activities such as corporate team building, jungle survival and personal development courses. Courses where you learn to challenge your self -imposed boundaries and find new strengths.

|Learning the ropes.|
For those of you with a sense of adventure and who like both mental and physical challenges, I would recommend that you take the full package which would include the Zip line and rope challenges. Once you’re all geared out, its time to make your way to the tower and climb the metal steps to the platform for the rope challenges. Before your start you will be secured to the main cables with 2 sets of safety cables for the various challenges. Some of them are pretty easy as you walk along on a single steel cable suspended either 16 or 18 meters above the ground, while others vibrate and sway and no matter how much you try to steady you legs, the cables move with a life of their own .For some, climbing across the cargo net is “a piece of cake” while for others stepping on the wooden boards suspended from cables in mid air is not that easy after all. I personally found the single-cable crossing with the 2 loose guide ropes the hardest to navigate.

There are various packages available from just the Zip-line, or including the rope challenges, or taking a full day package with White water rafting, abseiling and wall climbing thrown in.
Prices start from RM40.00 for a single Zip ride to RM280 for a full day package with lunch.
