Full description
Meet & greet your guide at your hotel or the airport in Sandakan and drive for about half an hour to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center, where orphaned and injured Orangutans are brought to be rehabilitated to return and fend for themselves in the wild. Witness the feeding of orangutans from a platform in the forest and later watch a 25-minute scheduled video documentary show.

Then, drive for about 2.5 hours through rustic countryside studded with villages before taking a short boat transfer to Borneo Nature Lodge. Stop for lunch and relax by the river before embarking by boat along the Kinabatangan river. View wildlife and birds in their rainforest habitat and watch Proboscis Monkeys as they settle down on treetops. After the river cruise you will be driven back to Sandakan and dropped at your hotel or the airport.
