      3 days in a leaky boat

      A travel blog entry by bevbag on Jan 01, 2015

      ... at the jetty for the boat ride across the river at about 3. Check in and room allocation done, we grab a bite to eat and head out for the first river cruise. We are lucky enough to see 5 species of monkeys and an Orangutan in the wild. Back for the buffet dinner, which was quite good, and then for a night walk through the forest. Didn't see much but did get to see a civet cat with a ...

      ... the size of the Malayan Sun Bear found on mainland SE Asia. Deciding we'd seen what the area had to offer we headed back to Sandakan with the whole afternoon ahead of us which came as a surprise.

One hung upside down ...

      ... have poor aim so it didn't get us.

      There was another big outdoor cage right next to the one we were in, a jungle gym for the babies. I leaned against the bars of my cage (from inside my cage, jail-like) & one of the babies picked up a branch from his cage & threaded it through the bars to connect/play with me.

      ... was around 4-6 family groups along with the bachelor group so there were Monkeys everywhere you looked! Very different to Sepilok but at the same time it does mean the work they are doing to rehabilitate the Orang-utans back into the wild is working - which is a great thing. Some of the males were getting a little aggressive (due to the close proximity of the bachelor group) and were jumping around a lot in the trees - one so much he broke a rather ...
