Orangutan Sanctuary

Thank your for your reply re the resturants and the visit to the Sanctuary. Could recommend somewhere nice to stay if we were to stay overnight. Because we are travelling Xmas/New Year would you recommend booking flights through the travel agent before leaving Australia and the hotel.

As we were in Bali during the first bomb, and have just cancelled our Bali trip I wonder if anyone can advise me if they felt in any danger in Kota Kimbula as the Australian government is warning of terrorist attacks against resorts in the Sabah area.

Just returned from Sabah and the place is fine. The warning is for the EAST cost of Sabah. You will find that most of the resorts are on the west coast. You have to note that Borneo is the 3rd largest island in the world so there is quite a distance between the two coasts.

Click on my previous posts to see that there is NOTHING to fear on the West coast and almost the same on the East coast and Islands where I spend most of my time when in Sabah, (including April this year).
