Visit sepilok

A visit to the world's most famous place to see orangutans in their natural habitat in the Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary and Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center is all the more compelling thanks to the outdoor nursery for orangutan youngsters in the same complex, and the nearby Sun Bear Conservation Centre and Rainforest Discovery Centre. In addition, the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary is only a short drive away.

Sepilok also appeals to nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. Sukau, the main village on the mighty Kinabatangan River, offers opportunities for hiking and photography.

Things to See and Do in Sepilok

Sepilok-Orangutan-Rehabilitation-Center

Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center

Drive to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center where captured or orphaned orangutans are re-habituated for a return to the wild. Your guide will take you along trails and to viewing platforms where there are wonderful opportunities to view these "men of the forest" (orang is the Malay word for man). Later, you'll meet with biologists working for the center, who will give you a special, behind-the-scenes look at their work to save these endangered primates.

Proboscis-Monkey-Sanctuary

Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary

The Proboscis monkeys are famed for their long, protruding noses, used to attract a mate, and are the most captivating of all the forest creatures in Borneo. A visit to this sanctuary is a chance to see them unobstructed and close-up, yet still in a natural habitat.

Sukau's-Rainforest

Sukau's Rainforest

The perfect cap to your experience as an amateur wildlife researcher is in Sukau, the main village on the mighty Kinabatangan River, home to an astounding variety of plant and animal life. Here, you'll check-in to the comfortable, exclusive and remote Sukau Rainforest Lodge, a 20-room ecolodge with a 1,500-foot bird-and-wildlife-viewing boardwalk stretching into the surrounding jungle.


Best Time to Visit Sepilok

The best time to visit Sepilok is between March and October, when the island is hot, humid, and at its driest. This makes it one of Southeast Asia’s few summer destinations. It is also the best time to see orangutans in the wild, while turtles can be seen on Lankayan Island between June and September.
