Sepilok Orang Utan, Sun Bear & Kinabatangan Wildlife
You will be picked up by car or coach and transferred to the Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre where orphaned and injured Orang-Utans are brought to be rehabilitated and learn to fend for themselves back in the wild. Sepilok is a primary lowland forest; a fine showcase of Borneo’s remaining rainforest. The highlight is witnessing the feeding of Orang-Utans from a platform in the center of their forest enclosure. A scheduled documentary video about 25 minutes is a great overview of the Orang-Utan.
We continue by visiting Sabah’s first Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) which is next to the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre. The Conservation Centre was founded by Mr. Wong Siew Te, a biologist studying and working with Bornean Sun bears. BSBCC was established in 2008 through collaboration with the Sabah Wildlife Department, Sabah Forestry Department and Land Empowerment Animals People (LEAP). It is a non-government organization and was setup to prevent the endangered bear from becoming extinct. All rescued sun bears are free to roam within the forest enclosure. You have opportunity to get a close view of the world’s smallest bear from the observation platform.
We proceed to drive for about 2.5hrs through rustic countryside dotted with villages.
After arriving at the lodge, there is an orientation and opportunity to relax by the river before embarking by boat up-river at 1600hrs along Sabah's longest river, Kinabatangan with opportunity to view wildlife and birds in its virgin Rainforest habitat. Search for wildlife including the famous endemic Proboscis Monkeys as they settle down on treetops. Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is on the best places in Southeast Asia to observe wildlife from the boat such as Wild Orang Utan, Crocodile, Long Tail/ Short Tail Macaque, Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Birds such as horn bill, king fisher and others in the wild.
After dinner, transfer to hotel. Tour finishes about 2230hrs. End of service.
