“A Great Start”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

I know the Sun Bear Conservation Centre is new but I think they have had a great start. I really liked how they have staff approach you and tell you all you want to know about the sun bears.

It would be great to have new walkways to visit other Sun Bear zones.

“A must visit”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

We arrived in sepilok at lunch time and didn't just want to sit around in our b and b so headed to the BSBCC! We are so glad we did.

In the visitors centre there is lots of videos showing about the work that is being done for the sun bears which was very interesting to sit and watch.

We then headed up to the viewing platform where there was lots of staff / volunteers to point out the sun bears and fill us in with lots of information about them :)

Whilst we were watching the Sun bears and huge orangutan came sneaking up behind us, climbed onto the railings and watched us before going off on his merry way.

The place was not over crowded and it was so nice to watch the sun bears go about their daily business :)

A defo must visit if you are in the Sepilok area!
