Day-Trip 9 hours - Sepilok Orang-Utan, Borneo Sun Bear Centre & Labuk Bay Proboscis Sanctuary


The Labuk Bay Sanctuary is about an hour drive from Sandakan airport and 20km west of Sepilok, it is located at the centre of mangrove forest along the coastal land near Kampung Semawang.

This hidden gem is perfect for sitting back and watching the primates without getting in the way of some cameras. You will have the chance at this sanctuary to share in this special world by viewing the groups of Proboscis monkeys feeding by park rangers from the platform.

It offers exhilarating and memorable experience observing the monkeys both family groups and bachelor groups leaping from tree to tree and eventually coming down to feed on young leaves and plant.

The Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary was set up in 1964 in the 4, 300 hectare Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve which is looked after by the Wildlife Department of Sabah. The main reason for this center is to rehabilitate orphaned baby orangutans who have been either captured as pets or found without their mothers.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our family party of five were both excited and apprehensive about the day but any concerns we had soon dissapeared after meeting David. He has mastered the art of being relaxed and freindly whilst retaining a proffessional manner. His knowledge of the area whilst in transit and at each venue was both informative and enlightening. Whilst we had a schedule for the day David was quite prepaired to consider possible changes. We would use his services again and can thoroughly recommend him without hesitation.
