We visited Sepilok as part of a trip to Sandakan and Seligan Island for Turtle watching (Organised by Borneo Trails).
The centre is well run and informative. There is a visitors centre, with a lot of interesting information, which families would find interesting too. We were taken by our guide Benie, and she gave us a greatdeal of information about the Orangs and her experiences over the years. The feed time arrived 10am, and almost on cue an Orangutan mother and baby arrived to be fed first. The monkeys soon arrived and one large male muscled in and kept all of the other monkeys of the feeding platform. Then two more orangutans arrived. Eventiually they al left and the other monkeys moved in. Plenty of photo apportunities. Our guide then subtly suggested we wait for the other visitors to leave and to walk back on the boardwalks quietly. Then Ringo made himself known! He was sitting in a tree just watching very one else leave. We patiently waited and he came down to show off and have many photos taken - he really did pose too! This was really special as he was so amusing and perfect to watch, without a large group to be noisy and impatient. After a while he got bored of us and swung off through the trees and we then left really happy with our visit.
