The Sandakan Wildlife Encounter is a guided tour that brings you to the famous Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre and the Rainforest Discovery Centre.
This tour package gives you the opportunity to visit the excellent rehabilitation centers and forest reserves around Sandakan, before going to places further afield like the Kinabatangan River and the Turtle Island Park.
The animals in the centers that you will encounter during this trip are considered semi-wild. Through a program of minimal human contact and a diet of bland, repetitive food, the various animals are encouraged to forage on their own, teaching them to be self-sufficient to a point where they can be relocated to somewhere truly wild one day.
During the feeding hours, when the young and inexperienced emerge from the forest for a snack break, you will have the opportunity to witness watching the animals up close and observe their interaction with each other. Here, they are usually oblivious to onlookers.
From orangutans and proboscis monkeys to macaques and the sun bears, all the way to the countless birds and insects at the Rainforest Discovery Centre, the Sandakan Wildlife Encounter is an experience not to be missed.
