DAY 1 (L,D)
Pick up from any hotels within Sandakan at 0800 hrs or Sandakan Airport (MH2042 @ 0750 hrs OR AK6092 @ 0750hrs). Transfer to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center. At this world renowned center, come face to face with human’s closest relative, the Orang Utans. Orang Utans share 97% of the same DNA as humans. The Orang Utans feeding time is at 1000 hrs. While Orang Utan rehabilitation is still the primary goal at Sepilok, present aims include public education on conservation, research and assistance to other endangered species such as captive breeding of the rare and endangered rhinoceros.
After that, continue the trip by visiting the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation centre. The sun bear is the smallest, most
arboreal and least known of the bear family measuring between 120–150 cm long and between 60-78 cm high at the
shoulder. Unlike other bears, the sun bear’s dark brown or black fur is short and sleek, probably due to the lowland
climates it lives in. On their chest sits a pale beige horseshoe shape marking which gives the sun bear its name being said to resemble a setting or rising sun. Similar color fur can be found around the muzzle and the eyes. Sun bears in Borneo live in the forest. In fact, they are so clever at hiding themselves in the trees that you would be extremely lucky if you see one in the wild.
Then proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, transfer to the Nature Lodge Kinabatangan which is located at the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary. The journey will take approximately 2 hours, passing by Kota Kinabatangan town and also oil palm plantation.
