It was great to view the Orangutans up close at the Rehabilitation Centre. We saw quite a few orangutans including a hige alpha male during feeding time. At one point a female walk on the railing next to me. That was quite thirlling

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!

We never saw the Orang Utangs in the wild, so this was a great chance to see them. There was a range of other wildlife to see, insects, leaches and Proboscis Monkeys.

You can see orangutans outside very close up at the feeding platform depending on how many turn up in the morning or afternoon or from inside the nursery looking outside through glass windows where there were a lot more of them to see.
Easy to get to via a share taxi from central Sandakan for only 6MYR.
Don't need to join a tour.

This piece of jungle for rehabilitation of orang oetans was disappointing: no orang oetan to be seen, with exception of the nursery, where young orang oetans are playing and feeding on fruit. You can only see them through a coloured window, which makes it difficult to make proper pictures. In the park no adults could be spotted, even at feeding time...

Have waited years to come here and I was not disappointed. The orangutans are just so amazing to watch as they play and eat in their playground. They are not locked in this area and are free to come and go as they like. We were mesmerised by their antics. They seem to roll and swing with such ease and rhythm. Out of a forward roll into a rope swing and up a tree in one motion. I wish I could’ve stayed there all day to soak up the entertainment. Love these guys.
