Friday, 2 November 2018 – Sabah – Borneo – Day 4

After breakfast, we left our lovely cottage and took in the beautiful countryside and a terrific view of Mt. Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Sabah . There were tea pickers in the grounds. It was into the Tea Factory to hear about the different processes and then into the Sabah gift shop – made some purchases and received a free sample of the refreshing Sabah tea.

It was then onto Kampung Luanti where we stopped off to enjoy a fish spa (foot massage). We laughed and laughed as it was a strange feeling having the fish nibbling away.

We travelled for about 4-5 hours through the Labak and Sugut area to Sukau for lunch. Sukau is on the Kinabatangan River, the longest river in Sabah. It is an area that’s home to 10 species of primates, 8 species of hornbills and a wide variety of other animals and birds.

It was then a short boat transfer to our accommodation in Borneo Nature Lodge. After checking in, it was down to the river bank for a river cruise in the long boats in search of proboscis monkeys and other wildlife along the river bank. We spent quite awhile watching the antics of the monkeys bounding from tree to tree.

We came back to the Lodge to relax before it was time to have our dinner.  This was a very long day driving for about 250kms but certainly had varied activities and magnificent scenic views of the villages and the beautiful Mt. Kinabalu.
