We walked from our accommodation, Sepilok Jungle Resort, to the rehab centre. There was a small entrance fee and camera fee but these guys are basically self funded so what the heck. The centre is a wonderful wooden structure that blends in nicely with the rain forest, there they have the ticket office, video-education centre and souveneer shop. They supply a locker for your bags as the orangutans get curious sometimes and a bag snatched by an ape is difficult to retrieve ! There is a board walk through the jungle to the viewing platform & out again, mabey 1 km all up, the platform is constructed so that everyone can see the apes. The number of orangutans to see can vary but we got lucky and saw 7 indivduals, adult and juvinile. You have to remember this is a rain forest so an umbrella is a good idea. We did the morning session to enjoy the relative cool morning air. The boardwalk is slippery when damp so sensible shoes are a must as is insect repelent. the walk through the jungle is wonderful, full of birds & butterflies. If we get a chance we would do it again, for now it's a must for anyones bucket list.
