16 days in Borneo - Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, Sepilok, Sabah, Malaysia

The first thing we want to see in Borneo is Orang Utan. Free shuttle service from Paganaakan Dii at 9.00am and pick up time is at 4.00pm.

Viewing platform.
The feeding time is at 10.00am and 3.00pm. The ticket is available for both feeding time. The ticket price are differents for foreigner and local Malaysian. Foreigner pay RM 35.00, Malaysian citizen pay only RM5.00. The RM 10.00 apply for camera fee.
The monkey always the first to get to the feeding platform.
This is a Rehabilitation Centre. Don't expect to see a lot of Oran Utan, this is not a zoo. There is no boarder for the Orang Utan to come and go. During the fruit season, March - June, not many of them will come.
We only manage to see only 2 orang utan in the morning feeding time.

We decide to wait for the second feeding time. So, while waiting for the centre to reopen again at 2.00pm, we watch a documentary about the work at the centre for more understanding.
We saw 4 Orang Utan in noon feeding time. Worth waiting :)
