Full-Day Sepilok Orangutan and Sandakan City Trail from Kota Kinabalu

3 reviews
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.   
US$115.39 per adult

unique chance to see these amazing animals. for those wishing to photograph be aware that you will be lucky to see anything outside the nursery where the animals are protected behind oneway glass which gives a green tinge to photos. but well worth watching them eat and play.

We were staying 5 min from the centre. We were able to go in the morning for the first feeding session, go and visit the sun bears & return for the afternoon. It is well organized & good to see all the hard work they are doing to rehabilitate the orangutans. There are monitors throughout to control the walkways. Although a few times we came close to the orangutans the monitors were there to stop us walking too close. Well worth a visit.

Bit disappointed to be honest. The feeding area looked/felt very contrived. We were kept behind glass. Photos were pretty rubbish. You didn't see any of the nursery/training stuff which I was expecting. The only highlights were when an orangutan appeared on the boardwalk - although the rangers were very quick to shoo everyone away as quickly as possible. This was meant to be the highlight of my trip to Borneo but it just wasn't - shame really!
