SEPILOK NATURE RESORT
Adjacent to the world renowned Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre, nestled among swaying palms and right by towering giant trees of the lowland tropical forest is the new Sepilok Nature Resort, a gateway to nature among the denizens of the virgin tropical lowland forest of the Kalabi-Sepilok Forest Reserve, the home of some of the last Orang-utans of Northern Borneo. Here, the tourist is able to enter jungle on a guided basis to observe the feeding of orang-utans which are under rehabilitation. Naturalists are also able to observe the structure of the lowland forests and the large number of different bird species found on and beneath the different canopies of numerous species of trees.
Sepilok Nature Resort is set among tropical palms and landscaped naturally with wild grasses and tropical shrubs. The resort offers fully air conditioned timber chalets and a large well presented centre offering a restaurant, lounge, covered terraces and sundeck situated beside a natural lake. The ambience is totally natural and relaxing, something to be savoured after a hot day in the jungle. If you feel like a walk, have a look at the orchid garden where over a 150 species of South-East Asian orchids are to be found, including the giant of the orchid world, the grammatophyllum speciosum, more commonly known as the "giant" or "tiger" orchid.
