Designed to delight nature lovers, this day tour allows you to observe orangutans in their natural habitat at the Sandakan Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Under the guidance of sanctuary staff, observe orphaned orangutans and long-tailed macaques being fed and follow a nature trail through the tropical rain forest. Eat a typical Malay lunch at a nearby restaurant and then embark on a city tour of Sandakan, one of Sabah’s earliest settlements home to haunting cemeteries, Chinese temples, and colonial mansions. Hotel or airport pickup and drop-off are included.

It’s appx 30 min drive from Sepilok where we stayed & well worth it. We booked the transport from the accommodation & the driver waited waited for us. We had appx 2 hours to view the monkeys which was perfect.We saw lots of monkeys but you have to arrive at feeding time. We went to the first session. Must have been about 40 monkeys between the three feeding stations. After feeding they were very active & it was great to see them swinging through the trees & playing. Well worth it.

Arrived early, had a good meal in the onsite restaurant before going to the feeding platform. Saw dozens of proboscis monkeys and several troops of macaques within arms length on the boardwalk leading to the feeding platform. Travelling between the feeding platforms, we saw hornbills, silver eared monkeys, wild boar and a huge monitor lizard. Great day out.

Wow! We nearly didnt booknthis and we were so pleased we did! It was great - we went to the first feeding station which was busy but ok then headed to the cafe for lunch which was v cheap. After we war had the video of how the sanctuary happened Stephen fry narrates it well and it may not be suitable for all ages as there is footage of mating. The story however is really inspirational. It also made us really aware of the palm plantations and the impact on these animals. Off the 2nd feeding station which was quieter and larger and an absolute treat. We really enjoyed seeing the monkeys in action and appreciate the efforts going into their conservation. Brilliant trip not to be missed.

Definitely worth the 15 km drive from Sepilok to this sanctuary. Photo opps of the proboscis monkeys were great. I did see some during my trip later in the wild but obviously those photos were 'rubbish'. It was lovely to see them close up. There were also long tailed monkeys here which were very entertaining. Enjoyed my visit.
