You will be picked up from your hotel for an early morning transfer to the airport to board a plane for Sandakan to visit the world's largest orangutan sanctuary. (flight ticket not included in this package)

At the Sanctuary, young, orphaned or captured orangutans are gradually rehabilitated into the wild.

This process offers an opportunity for visitors to see the orangutans up close in their natural habitat. A boardwalk leads to a viewing gallery and feeding platform where these smart animals are fed twice a day. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant before going on a tour of Sandakan. Get to go to the Market, check out the observation point, go to the Chinese Temple, and visit a water village. After that you'll be taken to the airport for your return flight to Kota Kinabalu.
