What To Expect

Have you ever known how turtles were born? In our tour to Selingan turtle island, park ranger will signal the appropriate time to view huge green turtles coming ashore to lay eggs. And then, you will witness the eggs being transferred to hatchery from the nesting site, offer help to release baby turtles onto the shore and be overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing the turtles scrambling to the open sea by some natural instinct. The next day of the tour you will spend time visiting Sepilok orang utan rehabilitation centre for view orphaned orang utan and their inhabitant
