I had a fantastic time during the 3D2N Deramakot tour. We were able to spot many endemic mammals including orangutans, civets, the elusive leopard cat, langur, and many more. The Deramakot reserve is full of life and even on this short adventure the sightings were truly wild and authentic. Without the crowds of fellow tourists you are able to truly immerse yourself into the jungle.

We loved our guide Con whose passion and enthusiasm for natyre shone through. We were a snall group of 2 which gave us more flexibility but it would be fine as a bigger group, saw orang utan hornbills galore, slow loris and numerous other creatures. Deramakot is a beautiful forest. Its more difficult to see animals than at Kinabatangan river but patience rewards, Food cooked by driver was excellent The only bad thing was having to wait nearly 3 hours between being dropped off by the car from KK and being picked up for the forest. Otherwise excellent
