Sepilok Nature Tour, Sabah, Malaysia

Wildlife Tour of Sepilok, Sabah

A leisurely-paced 2-day Sepilok Nature Tour, Sabah that is available on request and focuses three of the region’s iconic species: Orang-utans, Proboscis Monkeys and the smallest bear in the world, the Bornean Sun Bear.

The first day of your Sepilok nature tour visits the Labuk Bay Proboscis Sanctuary, where you can watch the feeding of the elusive Proboscis Monkeys amidst the mangroves. If you are lucky you may also spot Silver Leaf Langurs, Small-clawed Otters, Slow Lorises, Mudskippers, Blue Fiddler Crabs and Hornbills around the conservation area.

On the second day of this Sepilok nature tour you will arrive at the Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre at Sandakan in time to watch the apes feeding. Since 1964, this organisation has been dedicated to rescuing Orang-utans orphaned due to deforestation and poaching, then raising and preparing them for a return to the wild. This is followed by a tour of the nearby Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, which is focused on rehabilitating and releasing orphaned and ex-captive bears back into their natural habitat, as well as raising public awareness of this endangered species.

In addition to giving you a rare chance to get a close view of these remarkable creatures, your expert guide will be able to give you an insight into important conservation efforts in Sabah and Malaysia.

For anyone taking the evening flight to Kota Kinabalu, there is also the opportunity to visit Rainforest Discovery Centre and explore the magnificent botanical gardens.
