Visiting Sepilok Wildlife Centre Feb 20, 2013
A nice place to visit. Although there are lots of Orang Utans here, you won't be meeting them all. When I came over in 2009, there were only 3 of them. Watching them feeding on bananas was so memorable; I think they're cuter when they eat. Likewise, all visitors are not allowed to make too much noise as these creatures do not like noise. The forest was very peaceful. Being surrounded by trees, I felt nothing else but tranquility. Those taking pictures of the Orang Utans are also advised to turn off the flash mode of their cameras. Loitering is strictly prohibited. Visitors are also advised to be aware of their surroundings. Some Orang Utans can be quite aggressive, especially the older ones. Hence, they are best to be left alone. As for me, I watched them from far. Unfortunately, I did not have any DSLR with me; I couldn't take better quality pictures of them.

Worth a visit if you love the orang utans. Aug 03, 2012
We visited this centre at 10am, first feeding time. We saw about 3 orang utans at the feeding platform. It was very hot standing there watching them feed. Also crowdy like hell! I loved it more when we saw one orang utan on the pad to the platform.

I expected the centre to be bigger. If you stay there an hour you can walk at ease from the entrance to the exit.

We went to the exhibition as well. Really worth a visit!

Overall it is worth a visit cause by visiting you support this great project!

It costs 30 Malaysian Ringits (about $8 US) and another 10 for a camera pass. The feedings are at 10am and 3pm- the afternoon feeding is better. The orang utans are awesome and there is plenty of other wildlife in the canopy if you stop and look.

There are also hikes that take you into the jungle- just remember to wear long pants and shoes, no matter how hot it is. Leeches are noones friend. =)
