Orang Utan, Sun Bear & Rainforest Discovery Centre Tour

Spend the day among native wildlife while learning more about the nature of Orang Utan, visit the world smallest bear Sun bear and explore Rainforest Discovery Center (RDC).

In 1964, the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center was created to help rehabilitate orangutans that had been orphaned. As much as like a human infant, it is important to teach the orphaned young orangutan (which will usually stay with his mother for 5-6 years) how to survive in the wild, while his health is closely supervised during recovery. 

Visit the smallest Sun Bear in the world at the Sepilok Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center just next to the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. The center was opened in 2014 with the goal of raising public consciousness and bringing individuals who can be rehabilitated back into the forest.

The Rainforest Discovery Center (RDC) is the perfect introduction to really get to know the uniqueness and significance of rainforests in Borneo.

The RDC also provides visitors with an opportunity to get close with nature through its Nature Experience program that includes a guided walk to the Plant Discovery Garden, Rainforest Walk and indoor / outdoor activities.

This location will fascinate birdwatchers as it has one of the most endangered birds in Sabah, The Borneon Bristlehead and about 250 species of other birds such as the Hornbills, Broadbills, Pittas and Kingfishers. As of 2009, RDC has now become the official site for the international Borneo Nature Festival that draws birding enthusiasts from all over the world to participate.
