Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary

Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary is located in Sandakan, Sabah (island of Borneo). It is a rehabilitation for rescued orang utan from logging sites, poachers and plantations since 1964; and has become one of the major tourists attraction in Sabah.

You can see few orang utan swinging on the trees. In fact, they even made a 'friendly' gesture by throwing branches to visitors. Orang utan are wild if they have less contact to human. Giving them food is not advisable in Sepilok unless you are at the right place under the supervision of their staffs.

The centre opens daily (8.00am-5.00pm) and entrance fee for adult (local) is MYR 5.00 and foreigners MYR 30.00. You will also be charge MYR 10.00 for uses of any type of cameras in the sanctuary.

It is worth it as well to take a journey in the forest of Sepilok. If you are lucky, you might see some other wild animals too. The second photo is a shot of orang utan swinging on the trees (look closely), unfortunately the image was not clear enough.
