Explore Sandakan’s stunning nature on an extensive 12-hour tour that takes you to Gomantong Caves and Kinabatangan River. Start with an early morning hotel pick up in Sandakan and head over to Gomantong Caves one of the largest limestone outcrops in Malaysia, a protected wildlife area and home to the rare orangutans. Go on to explore the rustic countryside in the area and see oil palm plantations before heading on a picturesque river cruise. Sukau-Kinabatangan is the second largest river in Malaysia and as you travel down in a boat, you will be rewarded with stunning countryside views. Complete the experience with dinner at a local restaurant enjoying the best delicacies Malaysian cuisine has to offer.
After a convenient hotel pick up to start off your day with ease, you'll meet some of the world’s most famous monkeys in their natural habitat, learn about their life and even participate in feedings at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Established all the way back in 1964, the center helps rehabilitate orphaned or displaced orangutans. The animals are not kept in captivity and can move about as they please, they are fed and nurtured and can then voluntarily return into the wild. Walk through the magnificent dipterocarp forests that provide a natural habitat for orangutans and take plenty of pictures as they swing around in the trees, snack on milk and bananas and interact with each other. The 3 hour tour ends by dropping you off at your hotel once again.
