We made the great decision to travel to Sabah from peninsula Malaysia once the Sabah boarder open up for travel again. Such a nice peaceful time to be there. We visited on the morning arriving around 9am and wondered along the board walk spotting 2 utans almost immediately. We spent the hour until the feeding session casually watching 4 Orangutans hang around the trees and play, only around 20 people there and so nice not trying to jostle for viewing positions as I imagine it will be during peak pre covid season. It was an unbelievable up close view of these spectacular animals! They unfortunately do seem to be trained somewhat listening to the commands of the guides making the experience a little less authentic but was very pleased with this situation as we were leaving a big female was swinging along side us and the guide made sure we were safe to continue walking. We returned in the afternoon after visiting the sunbears and was a little more disappointed as many local families had arrived with crying children and cellphones ringing on loud. We very lucky spotted a mother and her baby over by the sun bear sanctuary she was absolutely beautiful and so nice to see her just going about her business away from the sanctuary. MALAYSIA PLEASE LOOK AFTER YOUR RAINFOREST AND PROTECT THE ORANGUTANS NATURAL HOME!!! STOP PALMOIL PANTAIONS!

Perhaps our expectations were too high, but we felt this was lacking a little. Great place and motives - fully supportive of the project, but we were unfortunate and only saw two female orangutans. The majority we saw were younger orangutans in the "nursery" area. Perhaps it all felt too artificial for us (zoo like) which is not what we were expecting. Don't get me wrong, there were no cages etc like a zoo, and they could wander freely, but just not quite what we were expecting, hence the score. Any larger males are moved out the area, so they do not make this their territory and scare off other orangutans, which makes sense, but again disappointing on ones expectations.

I liked it much more in Kuching. This one in sepilok was more like a circus. People were walking so close to the orangutangs. No rules at all :(. Go better to Kuching.

A great place to visit although very much a tourist site, we were slightly under whelmed, however we can see the importance and need for this place to create revenue & promote the need for Orangutang conservation. Great to see that orangutang's are being well looked after and re-habilitated with the idea of them being re-released into the wild, our guide made sure that we were in the right place at the right time to see the daily feeding sessions take place. The viewing of the youngsters is done from inside a room with a large glass viewing window. The feeding of the elders is done on a platform in the jungle about 30 meters from a boardwalk & viewing platform. Here we were treated to a visit from a mature male which was apparently very unusual, amazing to see his face plates. Overall a must do visit to ensure that you see an Orangutang during your visit to Borneo, luckily we saw many more in their proper habitat in the wild.

Absolutely fantastic we even got quite close to an orang-utan as one was walking on the hand rail of the walk way. We visited both morning and afternoon the afternoon seemed quitter than the morning. Luckily we had some cash as we didn’t read anywhere prior to going that its cash only.
