We have reservations to arrive in Kota Kinabalu For 4 days late Dec. There are a bewildering set of alternatives we are trying to sort out. Would like to see a combination of the wildlife (oragutans, pigmy elephants, etc) in their natural habitual not quasi-zoos as well as experience native culture. Can take a RT flight Sanakan if needed. Can set out on day trips from a city hotel or a tours from a reserve but some tours appear rather over priced. Would appreciate any suggestion.
