1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We wanted to see wildlife and appreciate the tropical environment. The most fulfilling experience was visiting the Gomantong Caves. The spectacle of seeing thousands of bats leaving the cave, observing Bat Hawks, eagles and Brahmny kites hunting them, and then the fortunate arrival of wild orangutans and maroon langurs in the trees surrounding the car park was an unforgettable experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be aware that the descent from the summit of Mount Kinabalu is long and arduous.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Visiting Sepilok and the Sunbear sanctuaries hopefully helped support these vital charities and prove to local people that cultivating tourism is more sustainable than palm oil plantation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

This was our first vacation with this operator and it definitely exceeded our expectations. In large part this was due to the excellent guide Basil Lung. His knowledge and expertise was second to none.
