The approach by sea is breathtaking as Bako's coastline is one of steep cliffs and sandstone outcroppings.
The morning began with a walk on nearby Pulau Lakei. Leonard did this hike while I stayed aboard to catch up on blogging.
In the afternoon, three walks were offered directly at Bako. Two of them were very intensive and not for the faint-of-heart or the out-of-shape (one was a three-hour hike that included steep inclines). We ended up doing the easiest of the three walks...a stroll along the mangrove boardwalk.
Here we saw proboscis monkeys, long-tailed macaques, Borneo bearded pigs (and piglets), silvered langurs, and a few birds.
The Zodiac ride back to Orion II was beautiful with the setting sun lighting up the water.
