Baby orangutan at Sepilok

The Orangutan sanctuary at Sepilok

Guests will be collected from the hotel and taken to the airport for your early flight to Sandakan. Arriving in Sandakan you are met by your guide, driver and vehicle for the drive to Sepilok.

The center rehabilitates orphaned orangutans and those that have been held in captivity. The center is set amidst dense jungle and you can take a walk into the jungle to see them in their natural environment. You arrive early enough to see the morning feeding session and also learn more about the rehabilitation program here. After lunch, you return to Sandakan and fly back to Kota Kinabalu where your car will meet you and take you back to the hotel.
