Journeys : April May 2009
Malaysia Welcomes the world! SABAH – home of the majestic, gentile Orang-Utan, the only species of great ape found outside of Africa. There you will find the Sepilok Orang- Utan Rehabilitation Centre, just one of four Orang-Utan sanctuaries in the world, a vital resource for a species whose numbers have dwindled to less than 15,000 due to hunting and habitat destruction. But there is much more to Malaysian Borneo than merely refuge for our threatened long lost relatives. It can be your tropical oasis or your adrenalin-charged adventure playground; your diving haven on an isolated reef, a trek through lush rainforests or a fairly gentle climb up Mt Kinabalu. It is an island of contrasts, from indigenous tribes known as “Latin Lovers” for their love of music and life to the bustling nightlife of the capital city Kota Kinabalu; from the sheer natural beauty to the horrors of Sandakan – the site of a Japanese prisoner of war camp where more Australians died during World War II than building the infamous Burma Railway. It can be your blank canvas where you can paint your own vast array of colours or it can be your packaged masterpiece but which ever way you go, it will be a picture you will never forget.
