    This sanctuary is spread out over 40 km² (15 sq mi) and is one of the most moving places in Sabah, as it rescues orphaned or wounded orangutans in order to teach them how to survive again in the wild. These red apes with soft eyes are native to Borneo and Sumatra. Sadly, they are an endangered species, as man is consistently encroaching on their natural habitat. Orangutans, who are remarkably intelligent like most of the great apes, measure between 1.10 and 1.40 metres (between 3’ 7” and 4’ 7”) and weigh approximately 80 kg (12.6 stones). They can live between 30 and 40 years.

    orangutans

    are fed daily at 12:00 and at 3:00 p.m. You can watch these great apes, with an arm span of up to 2.25 metres (7.4 feet), eat their meals!

    The name “orangutan” means “forest man”. Indeed, not only is their behaviour similar to ours, their genome is only 3% different from the human genome. They are highly respected by the indigenous people. An emotional encounter, in the heart of the humid jungle, that will not fail to move you.

  • If you are completely won over by these animals, you can even adopt one and regularly receive updates on its progress from the Sanctuary!

    Kinabatangan and Menanggul Rivers.

    The longest river in Sabah is full of surprises, thanks to the wetlands through which it runs, which teem with wildlife.

  • Using binoculars, you can see orangutans, proboscis monkeys, colourful hornbills, crocodiles and pygmy elephants, etc. A wonderful safari experience, during which you will be amazed by the infinite fauna and flora around you!

    As you continue to travel through the fascinating jungle, this cruise will give you a new opportunity to see many different animals. You will travel through in the jungle, along the river, through the thick vegetation and the mangroves.

  • An amazing experience, in the heart of a preserved wilderness! A Noah’s Ark, the lung of a planet that needs oxygen so much. A fragile, moving landscape, which is the a source of life.

    Sadly, the town was completely destroyed in the bombings of World War Two. Today, Sandakan is the second largest port in Sabah, after Kota Kinabalu, especially for palm oil, tobacco, cocoa, coffee, Manila hemp and sago.
