Go ape in Sabah

The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, in Sabah, Borneo is one of the biggest and most well know Orangutan sanctuaries in Malaysia.

Exotic Holidays is promoting the centre, which is located near Sandakan.

The total site is over 43 sq kilometres in size and around 75 orangutans roam free within the forest reserve.

During their rehabilitation, the animals rely heavily on the help of the people that work at the centre, and also on the donations from tourists.

Tourist can snap pictures during daily feeding time.

Borneo is one of two places on earth— Sumatra is the other—where endangered Orangutans can still be viewed by clients in the wild.

Orangutans are among the smartest primates; they make medicine, craft tools, and even exchange gifts.

‘Unfortunately, due to habitat loss caused by massive palm oil plantations, Orangutan numbers are dwindling; now is the time to see them while you still can,’ says Exotic Holidays managing director Rahul Sharma.
