“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Mark Twain
So after the Imbak canyon visit we drove out of the primary rainforest and made our way to sepilok for the night. Sepilok is on the far eastern part of Sabah in Malaysian Borneo. Here there is a rehabilitation centre for orangutan and as a special loop treat we get to stay in sepilok for the night. We were pretty exhausted so this was a well planned break.
Visiting the sanctuary was not dissimilar to the other orangutan sanctuary I visited back in September. It was bigger and they had a lot more space but I felt like it was a similar experience.
