Borneo Orang-utan and Turtle Tour, Sabah, Malaysia

Orang-utan and Turtle Tour in Borneo

A leisurely-paced 2-day Borneo Orang-utan and Turtle Tour, Sabah that is available on request and focuses three of the region’s iconic species: Orang-utans, Sea Turtles and the smallest bear in the world, the Bornean Sun Bear.

The first day of your Borneo Orang-utan tour involves a boat trip for an overnight stay on Selingan Island, a protected area for Green and Hawksbill Turtles. You can witness turtles emerging onto beaches to lay their eggs at night, observe the transplanting process of the eggs to a hatchery and enjoy the experience of releasing baby turtles back into the wild. The crystal-clear waters around Selingan are perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

On the second day of this Borneo Orang-utan tour you will visit Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre at Sandakan. 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.

Your Borneo Orang-utan tour concludes with a visit to the Sandakan Memorial Park, a tranquil space built in the former grounds of the Japanese prisoner of war camp to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives during World War Two.

  1. Great Trip while in Borneo!
    Christie Lundgen02 Oct 2018







    We had an amazing trip to Borneo. Everything went perfectly without a hitch! We enjoyed both Hamit and Hazwan and had an especially good time with Hazwan. They are both good birders and my partner saw an amazing number of birds. I loved the orangutans and the monkeys, so everyone was happy! I would not hesitate to recommend Borneo Eco Tours to anyone considering a trip to Borneo. Thanks again.
