Everything you need to know about orangutan safaris
As the jungle awakens with wild calls and chatter, you glimpse bright orange hair wisp through the emerald green rainforest, covering lithe and dextrous limbs and a pensive face that lives up to the name "person of the forest". Some swing Jungle Book style from branch to branch, others rest lazily in the trees while the daring scour the ground nearby for fallen fruit. Witnessing these endearing primates is so much more than just something to tick off the list and is a true highlight of your Bornean safari.
Starting as World Primate Safaris in 2005, we have years of experience designing itineraries that put you in the right place, at the right time for the ultimate Bornean orangutan safaris. We also support the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, which rehabilitates baby orangutans and those found in captivity with the aim of getting them back out into the wild. Visiting the sanctuary is the highlight of many peoples' visit, offering a great opportunity to witness these great apes in a beautiful setting, where they can comfortably coexist.
Borneo's animals, with their varying shapes and sizes, protruding noses or whooping calls, really do serve to amuse and entertain.
Travelling to Borneo to experience orangutans in the wild, you can also search for noisy proboscis monkeys, ferocious crocodiles, astounding bugs and even clouded leopards.
