orangutans in borneo

For nature lovers, nothing is quite so incredible as experiencing orangutans in the wild. One way to encounter these majestic creatures is by visiting Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. A highlight for many of Borneo's visitors, Sepilok is the largest of three orangutan rehabilitation centres in the world. Despite being one of the most instantly recognisable animals on the planet, orangutans are critically endangered with only 60,000 remaining in the wild, and the centre rehabilitates captured, injured or abandoned apes. The animals here are taught how to make nests and how to survive in their natural habitat.

Destination Seekers would love to talk to you about a trip to visit these amazing animals

The best way to experience these beautiful animals in the wild is on an organised tour, and the beauty of venturing into the rainforest to see orangutans is the other extraordinary wildlife that you will be lucky enough to experience along the way. Waking in the jungle to the distant calls of gibbons and hornbills is a magical experience. Take a night walk for the chance to spot nocturnal animals like the civet cat, tarsier, slow lloris as well as owls, frogs and a variety of insects.

Additionally, the Kinabatangan River area plays host to an incredible array of wildlife. There are a total of ten primate species you could commonly encounter, which as well as the orangutans include proboscis monkeys, langur moneys, gibbons and macaques. The area also offers the opportunity to see pygmy elephants, Malay sun bears, clouded leopards, crocodiles and the Sumatran rhino.
