    ... with another one right up in a tree. Not long after we got there, a keeper appeared and started feeding the bears. Only one of them noticed, the others were too busy playing and snoozing. Eventually, they all realised what was going on, so they came and started tucking in, along with some pig tailed and long tailed macaques, which we had to keep stepping back from the fence line from as they made their way up it towards the food.

    ... over the last couple of days, definitely a highlight of our trip.

    The following morning we asked the hotel shuttle to drop us off at Sepilok where we would stay 1 more night on Borneo. Sepilok is home to a Orang Utan and Sun Bear sanctuary.

    ... br> Once again the journey seemed endless and despite arising early we did not arrive until the early afternoon which caused yet more frustration and despair. The jeep would stop every two minutes to allow more passengers on even though it was full. There were folk sitting on the roof and hanging from the back, yet still it would stop. Two hours passed before we arrived into what appeared to be another nameless town. The tourist office was closed, which caused further ...

    ... trip into the rainforest as we were going to a place called Danum Valley which is a research centre. We had put a lot of research into the place before going and honestly there wasn’t a lot of information to find, we had to drag it out of every nook and cranny in the internet.
