Borneo adventure: Sepilok, Kinabatangan, Deramakot and Gaya Island

We're back from our Borneo adventure! As usual, I’m not going to be very chatty about our trip, just showing some highlights! But first a few words in where we’ve been and why:

Andreas’ parents decided they wanted to visit our hood again this year, but as they are smart people they didn’t feel the need to go back to Brunei again. So we decided we’d meet them somewhere a little more exciting, but still close by! We settled on one of the Malaysian provinces, the one east of Brunei, Sabah. They wanted to see animals, and as the two of us are totally in to that stuff we thought that was a good idea. We even decided to combine our forest adventure with them with some adventures of our own, while in the area. That’s how we ended up first going to Sepilok to the orangutans and sunbear sanctuaries, and then spend three days on river safaris on the Kinabatangan river, followed by three days of rain-forest safaris with the in-laws in the Deramakot forest reserve. We finished it all just the two of us on Gays Island, in a tropical resort just outside of Kota Kinabalu.

Andreas brought his new camera with a quite powerful lens so I have just snapped photos with my phone, maybe I'll post some photos of the actual animals we saw once we have edited the ones he took!
