Due to deforestation for palm oil production and the illegal pet trade, populations of this magnificent species have dramatically declined. However, it is still possible to see them in the wild in Sumatra and Borneo. While the conservation centre at Sepilok remains the best chance as the orphans are fed regularly, it is also possible to see them in the wild in Sukau rainforest. With one of the closest DNA percentages to the human race, an encounter with an Orangutan - whose Malay name means 'person of the forest' - is a similar in experience to that of the Mountain gorilla. This visit is combined with many other activities in Borneo and makes it one of our strongest tours in terms of variance and activities.
