As part of our package tour through Sukau Rainforest Lodge we were taken to Sepilok 0rangutan rehabilitation centre. While we do appreciate the important work places like Sepilok do for orphaned and injured wildlife, it’s very upsetting to accept that these places need to exist.
If you want to guarantee seeing an orangutan then this is a good place visit. Your entry fee will also contribute to a good cause. However, standing amongst perhaps 100 other tourists while a handful of orangutans are hand fed is not comparable to an encounter in the wild.
Check out our trips to Danum Valley or the Kinabatangan River for fantastic orangutan and other wildlife viewing.
