Kota Kinabalu, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Sabah, Sabah Itinerary, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

My partner Jools and I are about to embark on a trip to Sabah.  It is a two-week wildlife tour, organised by NatureArt Lab, based in Canberra.  In due course I will post for each part of the journey and there will be links to those posts below.  I may produce some temporary posts as I go but only if I have sufficient time.  Final posts will appear later (and I still have to finish final posts for Cuba and the Caribbean).

Links for summary posts and then final posts will appear under the maps in due course.

Kota Kinabalu, Landscape, Nature, Photography, Sabah, Sabah Itinerary, Travel, Wilderness, Wildlife

There is a great profusion of wildlife in Sabah which is much less affected by logging than Sarawak and Kalimantan.  There should be much to see including orangutans, sun bears, pygmy elephants, proboscis monkeys, hornbills, spectacular butterflies and remarkable vegetation such as orchids and the giant rafflesia flowers.

Using the letters from the map above (click it if you need to see more detail):

  • (a) We arrive in Kota Kinabalu Airport
  • (b) We spend a couple of days in and around Kota Kinabalu, the capital and largest city of Sabah
  • (c)  Cool rainforest in Mount Kinabalu (everywhere else we go will be hot and humid)
  • (d)  Different birds, insects and animals at Poring Hot Springs and staying the night in a Tea Plantation.
  • (e)  Sepilok Rainforest Discovery Centre, Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre and the Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre
  • (f)  Photography from a boat on the Kinabatangan River
  • (g)  Tabin Wildlife Reserve
  • (h)  Fly out from Lahad Datu Airport.

Next morning we visited the island of Topoxté in Laguna Yaxha.

There are six islands on Laguna Yaxha, settlement was mainly on three of them (which comprised a Mayan city) and Topoxté is the largest.

The island is now mainly jungle but there are lots of mysterious mounds..  This is because there were around one hundred structures.

.

Topoxté was occupied from the Middle Preclassic (1000 to 400 BC) to 900 AD, and again from 1100 to 1450 AD.

.

At times it was part of Yaxha and at others, independent.  In the later period they were associated with the city of Mayapan in Yucatan and after 1450 moved 14 kilometres west to Zacpeten, on a peninsula on Lake Salpeten, until the Spanish arrived in 1697.
