Location

This safari holiday will take place in various locations in Sabah. You will visit Selingan Island, Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center, Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center, and Kinabatangan.

Selingan Island

Selingan Island is located within the Turtle Islands, which lies in the Sulu Sea some 40 kilometers north of Sandakan in Sabah, East Malaysia. It consists of three islands; Selingan, Bakungan Kecil, and Gulisan, including the surrounding coral reefs and ocean. The park is noted for its green turtles and hawksbill turtles which lay their eggs on the beaches of the islands. The park covers an area of 17.4 square kilometers.

Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center

The Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre was established in 1964 to return orphaned apes back to the wild. The center was being administered by the wildlife section of the Forestry Department which in 1988 was upgraded as a department under the Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Development. All administration and management were given to the new Wildlife Department of Sabah.

Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center

The mission of the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center in Sabah, Malaysia, is to promote sun bear conservation in Borneo through animal welfare, conservation, rehabilitation, education, and research, giving captured sun bears a better home and restoring their right to live in the wild. This is achieved by:

  • Creating the capacity to confiscate, rehabilitate, and release suitable orphaned and ex-captive bears back into the wild and providing an improved long-term living environment for captive bears that cannot be released
