Known locally as ‘people of the forest’, orangutans can be seen in a number of excellent rehabilitation centres on the island but nothing beats seeing them in their true surroundings.
Bako National Park offers an amazing jungle experience and is located just an hour from Borneo’s Kuching International Airport. The habitat is wonderfully varied and includes rainforests, beaches, mangroves and rocky outcrops. Orangutans live in the park and many other indigenous species can be spotted in the park.
