Fantastic, our guide and driver were absolutely great. Nordin and Reward. Very informative and attentive and accommodating. The Rehab centre does such a wonderful job for these amazing creatures. We had a wonderful, although tiring and long, day. Our resort, Shangra-La provided us with breakfast as we had a 5am start for the day. At the risk of repeating myself, it was a great day.Reviewed by: Michelle H, June 2013
an excellent day trip for which we were provided with a driver and personal guide who was very knowledgable.. we saw orangutans as soon as we arrived at the rehabilitation centre and also on the feeding platform. te bhuddist temple was very well decorated internally and has a superb view of the town. we finished with the Sandakan Memorial Park which was very moving when reading about the treatment of the prisoners of the war in Japanese hands. all in all a very worthwhile trip and one that me and my wife thoroughly enjoyedReviewed by: John H A, United Kingdom, October 2012
Brilliant trip. Not to be missed. Very informative with clear instructions at the sanctuary. Fantastic to see these beautiful animals in their own environment.Reviewed by: Gavin T, July 2011
Awesome. A great way to get up close and personal with the Orangutan's whilst also knowing that you are contributing to their rehabilitation. I went at feeding time and it was not in any way crowded. The logistics of getting to and from Sandakan and Sepilok were well organized. As a single traveler I had to pay a 100% supplement to be able to complete this tour. Expensive (for me) but well worth it, a great experience.Reviewed by: anthony s, May 2011
The tour to the Orang Utan sanctuary was really well organised, efficient & a great excursion. We were lucky to be able to stand on the boardwalk with an Orang Utan playfully rolling near our feet. Watching the feeding session was entertaining & the information session about the sanctuary was very informative. We asked to see the Sandakan Memorial instead of visiting the Buddist temple & this was easily & efficiently organised. The excursion was well worth the cost & highly recommended.Reviewed by: Wayne K, Australia, May 2010
