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.

We were there in the evening. The offices in the Park were closing. There were a few interesting old parts of the camp that were restored and displayed.

What a brilliant surprise. The Australians have done a wonderful job. You can download an app which tells you all about the camp and the death march. Never knew about this camp but it is a story that needs to be told.

It is a painful reminder of what wars can do. The place is well kept which makes the visit very pleasant indeed although the reminders of the atrocities of what happened there were described and preserved (where possible) effectively.

There is an app you can download for free when you arrive that guides you around the park and tells you the story of the former POW camp. The park is well maintained and the guide leads you to the information centre with informative boards. I had never heard about the death marches or realised the WW2 history until arriving in Borneo more people need to learn about this tragic piece of history. A must visit if In Sandakan.

Not enjoyable story, but worth knowing what happens during war and how awful people can be to other people - no matter what nationality.
