    There are quite a few things to do in Sepilok.

    There are quite a few things to do in Sepilok. I will start with the most famous attraction: the Orang Utan Sanctuary. It was the 2nd time we visited, the first time was in 2021. Definitely more tourists now. There are 2 feeding times and because I wanted to take pictures, stayed near the feeding platform before 10am to get a good spot whilst all the tourists went to watch the feeding at the nursery. The nursery is good as you are guaranteed to see the Orang utans, but you see them behind glass, which gives a bit of a zoo feel. The feeding platform is great as you never know how many, or even if, the Orang Utans are coming. We saw 5 in the morning and 6 in the afternoon. We only saw 3 the next morning. If you have a big lens on your camera, the rule is if you have a fixed lens over 400mm, then you have to pay RM 1000. If you have a telephoto lens, it is only RM10. I brought my 150-600mm telephoto for RM10 without problems. The bear sanctuary. Good for education and conservation but it is a zoo, with the bears in enclosures. Another great attraction is the canopy walk. Bring plenty of water but the trails are great. they also organise night walks (no flash allowed) and the guides are very knowledgeable. Finally, Labuk bay is not far and is great if you want to see proboscis monkeys up close. This time, we were treated to a troup of silver leaf monkeys coming to say hello as well. The fact that they feed the monkeys with bread is definitely debatable, but the monkeys are free to come and go as they please.

    Able to visit the orangutan and sun bear sanctuaries at leisure as able to walk to them from accommodation. Those on a trip appeared to be rushed whereas we were able to enjoy time at both. Some nice places to eat within the various lodges, you don't have to be resident.

    The glamping unit was amazing - spacious, quiet, nicely decorated. Great for a family. Awesome, helpful staff. Good food and bar. But unit had cooking facilities (no pork allowed on the grill.) A ways from town but very close to other attractions like the Orangutan and Honey Bear sanctuaries. WiFi was only available in the restaurant, but with our cell phones, we managed just fine.

    Loved the orangutans got ripped off seeing the probiscus monkeys! Beware unless with organised tour make sure you get a solid agreement with a driver to take you there and bring you back. No extras! The feeding platform is 1.5km from the entrance! The 2nd platform another 1.1km away so 2.6km back to the entrance. There are no grab cars around! We ended up flagging a car diwn on the road to ask for a lift to town! Was ridiculous! Walking in that heat too! Best to go on organised tour! Book a grab early if leaving for airport too as not many arpubd it seemed at 10am!! Or not many wanting to go airport! Hotel tried to charge 75mr when grab is only 17mr! One big ripoff if you ask me!

    Great place for viewing the Orangutans.

    Great place for viewing the Orangutans. I stayed at 2 resorts over 3 nights. A buffet breakfast was included at both resorts and cafe/restaurant were open for lunch and dinner. I did a night walk and pre-ordered my dinner for when I arrived back. The resorts were next to each other and a 10 minute walk to the Orangutan conservation hut. I was travelling with my 84 year old father, so we took an easy pace. I went to both the morning and afternoon sessions at the Orangutan conservation centre. I recommend arriving plenty of time before the feeding times (at least 30 mins) as the orangutans start arriving well before the food arrives. It's a great opportunity to get photos whilst they are in the trees and watch them swinging around gracefully. Only one young male came for the morning session, plus loads of long tailed macaques. 3-4 came in the afternoon, including a mum and baby. I saw larger male at the

    It was my second time visiting Sepilok and both times I visited Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre, was an incredible experience to be so close to the Orangutans. This time we also went to the Sunbears which was lovely to see this rare sighting of the bears and to see the good work the centre is doing. We visited Rainforest Discovery Centre, for one of their night walks this was great, and i wish we had another day so we could have explored this park during the day...maybe next time.

    The staff was amazing! They were incredibly nice and went out of their way to help make our stay wonderful. The little pool was just perfect. The dining area is very nice and relaxing. And the location is the best, there's wildlife at the resort, and the orangutan and sun bear conservation centers are 10 minutes away by foot. The reception also organizes other activities and they helped us reschedule some activities on the fly because of the weather and availability!

    The hotel is generally a one-night stopping off point for travel to the Kinabatangan River and as such it is a very good choice. The Orangutan Sanctuary, the Sun Bear Conservation Center, and the Rainforest Discovery Center are all a 10-15 minute walk away. The room was recently improved and was large and accommodating. The shower was huge. The on-site restaurant, Mango Garden, served good food with beer and wine available.

    At Sepilok B&B, I appreciated the quiet and natural setting. Its location near the Rain Forest Discovery Centre and the Orangutan Rehabilitation Sanctuary made sightseeing convenient. The rooms were clean, and the breakfast was tasty. Our road to the place took longer than planned, and the staff was really helpful and kindly waited for us to check in.

    Room was great with comfy bed + mosquito net. Inside/outside bathroom. Clean bed sheets/towel and basic toiletries provided. Community areas have gorgeous views over the rainforest - we saw three squirrel species and a snake whilst eating breakfast! Great free shuttle service to RDC/orangutan sanctuary. Also organized travel for us when needed.

    The hotel had a great view in the reception area as well as from the room. Each room was a separate cabin which had more privacy, we loved it. The reception staff was very helpful. He sent us to a nice room with good views. Room was pretty big for 2 people and was clean We enjoyed our stay in there. Thank you!

    Very comfortable and clean. The room was ready when we arrived so they let us check in early. It’s about a 15-20 minute walk to the Orangutan Sanctuary. Don’t forget to see the flying squirrels at the Rainforest Discovery Center during the night walk.
