I was worried that this would seem a bit zoo-like but it feels more a semi-wild experience. Our group went to both feeding times - 10am and 3pm. We didn’t see anything at the morning feed apart a long-tailed macaque stealing all the food but...More

This is a must do in Sepilok. We arrived at 9am. There is a locker for bags and water bottles etc as nothing can go with you in to the park. There’s a 10rm charge for cameras. A cafeteria in the car park sells coffees...More

We came to Borneo mainly to see the Orang Utans and we visited this sanctuary for two days - both mornings and afternoons. Both mornings were disappointing, we saw 2 Orang Utans on the first day and none on the second. Both afternoons were great,...More

This is a must- Went for the half day tour- which I think was about right- the full day tour is really just.a repeat of the half day. The staff were great. The orangutans of course are the stars. Great for families.

The centre is lovely, seeing the orangutan in the forest was a highlight. It is very hot and humid, but worth it. We used a taxi for the day so we could stay as long as we wnated, we saw many orangutans on the day.

A huge thumbs up to the organisation for the centre. When me and my friends arrived, me missed the feeding session by 30 mins. However we managed to catch a very upclose moment with one of the orangutan which was so much fun. Nevertheless it...More

What a great job this organisation does. We organised the trip,ourselves from Kota Kinabalu before leaving Australia. We flew at 6.20am and our private guide was waiting at Sandakan. We went for the first feeding and didn't see any Orangutans so we were able to...More
