Wildlife of Sabah, Borneo

In April 2017 I had a chance to travel to Borneo for the first time. This vast tropical island has changed immensely over the last few decades and not in all aspects for the better. It still provides a lot of opportunities for nature & wildlife (eco)tourism. I was lucky enough to witness some incredible moments in Sepilok Wildlife Sanctuary and in areas surrounding the Kinabatangan River. These are the photos I liked the most.
