Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

There is no primate quite like the orangutan. These great apes are a stirring combination: brawn and grace; raw power and gentle restraint; stupid amounts of cuteness and even more cuteness. And behind their sparkling eyes, deep reserves of what we can only call wisdom and, sometimes, sadness. All these complicated observations occur at once at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, where visitors can see the ginger apes from an (admittedly often crowded) viewing platform, the highlight of many a Sabah trip.
