Despite being in so much pain and being unable to walk properly due to the Mount Kinabalu climb (which we later found out would last for about a week post-climb), I insisted on making the effort to see some Bornean orangutans. When in Rome…, right?!
Unfortunately the famous Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary was five hours away from our accommodation in Kota Kinabalu, so we settled for the very cute babies and toddlers at Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort’s Orangutan Sanctuary instead. These little ones are actually pretty pro at entertaining the tourists, despite their young age – all under four years old!
