Not many showed up to the feeding session but the place is well maintained and the authenticity is there. We visited the Proboscis monkeys, near buy and we like it more.

A must do when in Sabah, for some it may be the only chance to see the gorgeous orangutans! Ensure you are there for the feeding time at 10am which gives you the opportunity to see rehabilitated and also orangutans born in the wild.

What an awesome place. Watching the young Orangutans play was the highlight for me. Also amazing when an orangutan goes for a walk on the raised platform so you can see them close up. Lots of information available from volunteers and staff in a beautiful...More

This was a really wonderful and educational experience. It was a privilege to observe the wonderful work that this rehabilitation centre is doing for the Orangutans in Borneo. The "nursery" was great to observe and the care and attention to keeping the centre as close...More

Just returned from Sepilok to see the Orangutan sanctuary and the Sun bear sanctuary across the road. Highly recommend getting there when it opens at 9am so you can see the first feeding time. This is where you will see most of the smaller orangutans...More

Sun bears are just opposite to Orang-utans, best to do it together. I would say half a day for both. 2-3hrs for Orang-utans( one feeding platform and nursery where you can watch them behind the glass) even less for... More
