Sandakan Tours & Packages
The Sandakan Nature Discovery Tour takes you on a visit to the Turtle Islands Nature Park as well as Sepilok Orang-Utan Sanctuary. Spread out over a course of two days, this tour is a good way to experience some of Sabah’s token attractions.
Spanning over 1, 740 hectares, the Turtle Islands National Park lies 40 kilometres north of Sandakan. Known as Pulau Penyu in Malay, it is a collection of three tropical islands, Pulau Selingan, Pulau Bakungan and Pulau Gulisan. The park is noteworthy due to the surrounding coral reefs and waters which have proven to be a safe haven for the green and hawksbill turtle. The only way to visit Pulau Penyu is on an organised tour. Start your day off with a 90-minute boat ride to Pulau Selingan – learn about the turtles and watch as they come ashore to lay their eggs. Later help the park rangers release hatchlings from their nursery; a tasty dinner wraps up the night.
After an overnight stay on Pulau Penyu, return to Sandakan and visit the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre; located 25 kilometres north of Sandakan it was established in 1964. Orphaned and injured orang-utans live on campus at this 40 square kilometre park; is one of only four orang-utan sanctuaries in the world and is one of Sabah’s top tourist draws. The tour wraps up with lunch at the sanctuary before a short tour of historic Sepilok and then you are transferred back to your hotel.Read More
