After a week of being under water, it was time to move on. We left Mabul after a last fun-filled day of diving and arrived in Sepilok late at night. We stayed at Paganakan Dii which is beautifully located on top on a hill in the middle of the rain forest.
It was time to get serious and unpack those hiking boots.
The wildlife was rather wild. Besides deer, we also came across some cows on the road.
We spent a day visiting the rainforest research center and the Orang Utan Sanctuary.
We finished the day with a roof top dinner in Sandakan.
The next day we left early to get to Kota Kinabalu for New Year’s. More on that – tomorrow.
