I've been to both Sandakan and Kuching now and have to say that Sandakan (Sepilok) is probably better, although Kuching (Semenggoh) has smaller crowds.

Sepilok is more professional, we watched an educational video first, then enjoyed seeing orangutans coming to eat (although most of them turned their backs on us). There was even a mother with her baby hanging from her!

Great morning but very, very hot and humid.

They've 3 Orang Utan there, but during my visit recently. Only two Orang Utan shows. They're quite playful, and sometime they even hitting each other *not that bad* because of the food. But have to do a short trekking to the Orang Utan Feeding area, so have to be careful with every step. See them Live in the nature way they living. you see how happy they are.

Brilliant - don't miss it! The orangutans are close up and obviously used to spectators, but well worth seeing. They eat, play and fight - just like us really!!

Very disappointed. I saw two orangutans, 100 metres away on a feeding platform. Completely boring. The Rain Forest Discovery centre is a much better use of time.

The first feeding time at 10am was packed with about 150 people and was very noisy and only 2 small Orang Utans came out to feed. In the afternoon at 3pm there was only 15 people there and 7 Orang Utans were feeding including a huge adult female. The trails were all closed so there is not much else to do there. Even though there is supposed to be a bus to take you in to Sandakan it did not come and there is no information as to public buses. But at 30 MR entrance fee it is worth it as it is probably the closest I will ever come to seeing a great ape in the 'wild'
