Description

Take an eco-friendly trip around Borneo to explore an amazing ecological reserve, followed by a look at the area's grim history during World War II. Catch a glimpse of orangutans in their natural habitat at Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary and explore the incredible Australian War Memorial Park.

Set out from your Sandakan hotel and embark on your adventure to the boundaries of Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. When you arrive, marvel at the incredible forest reserve where young orangutans are trained to survive in the teeming jungles of Borneo.

As you follow your expert ranger through the emerging rainforest, keep an eye out for these active primates as you walk along a raised wooden platform to the observation deck. Don't miss out on the feeding session, where the ranger offers a wide array of fruit to the adorable orange apes.

Your next stop is at the Australian War Memorial Park, where you can learn about the Sandakan Death March, one of the greatest atrocities in Australian war history. Tour the original World War II camp site before you return to your hotel.
