Hanging with the Orangutans

... the road. The heat was too much to walk too far in so I caught a quick taxi down the road. The Centre had a very informative section on the rainforest and the inhabitants which was good to read about. The Centre is located within a park which is all included in your entrance fee. This park was so large you'd need a whole day to get through it all. I just went to the Canopy Walk to watch for birds but it was starting to get late in the day and there was ...

... person. Ashley and Edwin were fantastic guys, so friendly and helpful - I cant recommend Sukau Greenview Tour Company any higher if you are planning a trip to Kinabatangan River or Sabah in general. After paying for my tour I went back to the hotel and got my things together for my pick up at 12:30. The driver came to pick me up outside my hotel a little after 12:30, but I was not alone - I had an English couple along for the ride with me. Charlie and Gemma were from London and ...

When we landed the plane turned directed around and drove back up the runway to park by the terminal, I guess they don't get many flights here! (We only saw one other plane parked ...

... Kota Kinabalu. We had read that the best chance to see orangutans was during the official feeding times: 10.00 or/and 15.00. Since the morning “shift” suited us better we had to get up quite early in order to catch the first bus going from Sandakan to Sepilok.

When we arrived at the minibus station of Sandakan we found out that we could either take a big bus for RM 5 per person, or pay RM 1 per person more and go by minivan. Both means of transportation ...

... feel very grateful and lucky to have seen the Proboscis monkey in the wild, and this will always be a highlight of the trip for us both. The trip back to Sandakan was very frenetic and we can only guess the driver had somewhere else to be! We arrived back to our hotel tired and looking forward to a good sleep, but first some lunch! We decided to stay in the hotel as a recommended eatery was closed when we walked to it. It mainly does dinners I think. Anyway, we ate ...
