I was so looking forward to seeing the urangatans and I wasn’t disappointed - but it felt it was a bit more like a zoo. Watching the babies and juveniles feed and play was so good. These animals are just incredible to watch.

We spent the morning here to observe the 10am feeding and visit the nursery. As someone who often worries about centres which call themselves sanctuary’s and opted out of Labuk Bay, I can honestly say that I had no problems here. The video which they...More

The place provides lockers but in terms of luggage not so sure. Best to call the centre first to check. You can access the place by taxis or via the Grab App (will cost around RM20++ from town) Hope this helps :)

You may try visiting the Sabah Tourism website, under 'Destination', there is a page for the centre. Look for the 'Shopping' tab which will lead you to a website to purchase souvenirs. This is just a suggestion :) hope it... More
