Overview of Tour

This 2D 1N Trip is turtle-tastic with a side of monkey-business. Enjoy the crystal-clear waters of not on just any island, but an island that hosts one of the World’s oldest turtle hatcheries. Witness the magic of sea turtles nesting on shore and hatchlings racing out to sea in Selingan Island then swing by Sepilok to meet your cheeky red-haired cousins, the Orangutans.

Overview of Location

Selingan Turtle Island - The Island hosts one of the oldest turtle hatcheries in the world and is one of South East Asia's most important nesting beach and breeding ground for the Green Turtle and Hawksbill Turtle. All environmental conditions on Selingan Island is made ideally safe for Sea Turtles to come and lay eggs, away from predators and all sorts of pollution such as light and noise. It is also a safe haven where baby hatchlings could be released without dangers and disorientation. Also included in this turtle-tastic destination is some fun times in the sun. Stretch out on white sandy shores or go for a snorkel with the marvelous marine life that reign the underwater world. 

Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre - 25 minutes west of Sandakan sits The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, a sanctuary for our endangered friends spanning an area of 10,610 acres. It is a rehabilitation project dedicated to orphaned Orangutan that were rescued from plantations, illegal hunting, or illegally kept as pets.  The boardwalk that leads to the viewing gallery and feeding platform allows you to witness the orangutans being fed milk and bananas. Feeding happens twice a day at 10am and 3pm by rangers.
