    Just outside of KK (by taxi), a visit is worth population, a few monkeys in a cage and some other, small (gel to geweilte) orangutan. Should you go to anyway, because you don't know whether you will see the animals closer somewhere else.

    Beautiful place. After a "bumpy ride" where we met all the necessary monkeys (macaques with pig tail once shy now instead of all brutal) and monitor lizards, we were pleasantly surprised with our beautiful Riverside room. Beautiful river view Yes it is brown water but logically with the existing base! Super nice running water and across the street a family monkeys. The tours were top, nice guide (Rafael) and his buddy Grace. Made it even more fun to see all t wildlife. We saw the elephants rather to the Kinabatangan River.. When Tabin was just their POO. Though orang utan (with baby) seen and various snakes and other wildlife. Certainly not disappointed. Food okay.. There is always something you lust I think (was there with 2 teenagers;-) Although very expensive ... awesome and pure!

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
