What To Expect

Your day learning about Borneo's primates begins with pickup from either the airport or your hotel in Sandakan hotel. If flying from Kota Kinabalu, you must arrange your own flights and it is suggested to book the 7am flight. 
Once you meet up with your guide, climb into your air-conditioned vehicle and drive about 1.5 hours to the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, located in a palm oil estate and dedicated to the conservation of these animals. At 11:30am watch the trained staff feed the monkeys their morning meal while learning about their biology and behavior. 
Continue to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center in the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve. Learn about the organization's mission to rehabilitate injured, rescued, and orphaned orangutans with the goal of returning them to the wild. Sit down for lunch, then watch a documentary on the center's work before heading out to watch the animals feed in the lowland rainforest. The trained staff will provide the orangutans with their favorite treats and you'll be able to watch them in action as they play and forage in the forest. 
Return to Sandakan for hotel drop-off around 6:30 pm. If flying back to Kota Kinabalu, it is suggested you book the flight that departs at 6:10pm.
