Day 1      Sepilok Orang Utan / Sun Bear Conservation Centre / Rainforest Discover Centre (Lunch&Dinner)

Morning, depart from your hotel in Sandakan or meet at Sandakan Airport. Drive to the world-renowned Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre to witness the feeding of the iconic Orang Utan and a good opportunity to photograph them in their natural habitat. The centre was established in 1964 to help rehabilitate the Orang Utans which had been orphaned, or displaced by logging and clearing of secondary forests for plantation. The magnificent mixed dipterocarp forest offers a natural home to the Orang Utans, which slowly become less dependent on their twice-daily feeding of milk and bananas at the centre and eventually return voluntarily to the wild.

Continue to the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre. You can now get close to the world’s smallest bear in its natural forest environment. These adorable Sun Bear is losing their habitat through deforestation. The mission of the centre is to promote sun bear conservation in Borneo through animal welfare, conservation, rehabilitation, education and research – giving captured sun bears a better home and restoring their right to live in the wild. Visitors will be able to peek in on their activity from the walkway as they lumbered and played in open-air forest enclosures.

After lunch, visit to the Rainforest Discovery Centre, developed by Sabah Foresty Department to give an insight into the wonders of the rainforest. It is also the gateway to getting to know the uniqueness and importance of Borneo’s rainforest. It has become one of the prime bird-watching spots in Sabah.
