Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre Holidays

Set up in 1964, Borneo's Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary is the best known of the four orangutan rehabilitation centres in the world. The centre covers 43 square kilometres within the 4,500 hectare Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve and is located just outside Sandakan.

Sepilok is a sanctuary for injured, orphaned or rescued orangutans who are trained how to survive in the forest, a learning process that can take years. Upon ‘graduation’, rehabilitated orangutan are released into the surrounding forest. Many of the orangutan living in the forest return to the centre at the twice daily feeding times, giving visitors a unique chance to view these magnificent animals at close quarters.

A visit to the sanctuary is one of the major highlights of any Borneo holiday.
