So after our previous day in Labuk Bay Resort we got up early for breakfast and glorious sunshine.
Yeah it was real hot!
Feeding time was around 11am, we already had plenty of pictures though so we just enjoyed the natural habitat. The turn-out wasn’t as good as the previous day anyway (it wasn’t that bad – they just didn’t come close) and there were a few extra (and noisy) visitors. Took a bit of time to play with the wide angle and the CPL.
Mom was busy practicing taking macro pictures of some ants with her Panasonic.
We watched the tribes come out of the jungle for their feeding time.
Check out the king on his throne.
Then it was off to the same spot as the previous day for lunch, better weather this time though and an extra dish! Freshly caught mud crabs! Plainly steamed – delicious.
After that it was time for the bumpy muddy ride back, the track was really cut up due to a lot of rain and heavy construction vehicles building a new road.
Quite a few people got into trouble with the mud (us included).
You can see how the caterpillar tracks have cut up the mud here.
This fella was so stuck a digger had to come and push him out!
And well that was goodbye Labuk Bay Resort and back to civilisation (sadly).
Honestly I’d love to go back to Labuk Bay and just spend a bit more time there, it’s so relaxing and it’s really like being in the middle of the jungle. There’s nothing much to do, no TV, no Internet and it’s quite stress free.
I’d thoroughly recommend the place!
When we got back into Sandakan we checked into Sepilok Jungle Resort, had some dinner and slept early for our exciting next day with the Orang Utans at Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre.
Orang Utans coming soon!
