See orangutans in Borneo

Get the chance to meet orangutans and sun bears with this amazing full day experience at the Orangutan Rehabilitation Center found in the middle of the Sepilok Forest Reserve. Reachable by plane and car in 1-hour and 10-minutes from Kota Kinabulu Airport, this choice is wonderful for families and couples wanting to explore the lush greenery of Borneo.
 
An unforgettable experience is guaranteed for everyone, but especially animal-lovers thanks to the fact you get up close and personal with these orange-haired beauties. Your day will start with a documentary all about the rehabilitation process before having the chance to feed and make friends with the creatures which happens daily at 10am.
 
You’ll then be taken to the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center where you will be able to admire the rare creatures playing and going about their day.
  
Let the excitement continue as you head to the historical settlement of Sandakan City. Wander through landmarks such as Puh Jin Syh Busshist Temple as well as Sandakan Central Market where you can sample a range of local delicacies and sweet treats before the final leg of the tour.
 
Ending at the English tea house, tastes of home are served with a smile. Dishes such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie and a range of cream teas are all on offer making this venue the perfect choice for dinner before heading back to Sandakan Airport or your hotel lobby.
