    Had an amazing time at the sepilok sanctuaries :)

    Highly recommend Anzar as a driver and guide in Sepilok and Sandakan.

    I whatsapped Anzar a few days prior to our arrival in Sandakan and he managed to organise a flawless day trip which included pick up from sandakan, a morning river cruise on the Kinabatanagan river and visits to the proboscic, orangutan (during feeding times) and sunbear sanctuaries and the Rainforest discovery centre too. Our day ended when we were dropped off to the local bus station in sandakan.

    He was knowledgeable, reliable, reasonably priced and a very nice guy. His details are below for whatsapp.

    We were planning to hike part of trail up the hill. Then after reading some info, it got clearer, it is for more experienced mountaineers, planning is essential for time, equipment, it is not for random trip but more days in Kinabalu park , the hike takes two days . For inexperienced people, the park below mountain is perfect enough, with restaurants and botanic garden 🪴 . For making a hike up there, you should spend preparation some months ahead.

    We had Abdul our hired car driver +60 11-1669 5114 who picked us up straight from airport as our flight was delayed and straight to see the proboscis monkeys for the last feeding at4:30pm. He did give the relevant information on this type of monkeys and on the way there he joked alot plus gave us happy memories of the trip. The labuan Bay monkeys were spectacular and they showed up with lots of their comrades at feeding session as they are not shy with human beings. Apparently they are feed cabbage, fruits adn corn, while this monkey cannot accept sugar in their diet
    Silver leaf monkeys were there to compete for the food as well so you get to see the interesting interactions between the types of monkeys. We spent at least an hour there to see the behavior of the monkeys which was very intriguing.

    This review is JUST for the night walk which is SO WORTH IT. I have a feeling the entrance free during the day is unjustified, as I freely wandered the plant garden right before the night walk.

    The 2 hour night walk is just fantastic. The guides’ eyes catch so many things us mere tourists would never see. Although the flying squirrel was too fast in flight to catch a photo of, seeing it was SO cool (despite waiting a half hour to do so). The adorable Western Tarsie though was the highlight of my evening (and potentially my whole Malaysia trip?!)

    Tried snorkelling & seawalking under operator named Long Beach. I recommend this operator as they are more organized, well priced, departs early, and I like their striking bright red life jackets. Got few packages, I took the one with 2 islands hopping (Manukan & Mamutik), snorkelling and sea walking (including go pro photos and videos rental). Can find other packages to (other water sport: Banana boat & Parasailing). Can find more booking info from internet (I use direct Whatsapp to book). Easy to deal with.
