Silversea Luxury Cruises To SANDAKAN (Sabah)

SANDAKAN (Sabah)

Borneo's forbidding interior made it less attractive to early traders and explorers than neighboring areas, so what is now the state of Sabah remained unexploited by the British until the late 19th century, although traders long visited for exotic items such as bird's nests (for the celebrated Chinese soup). In 1963, Sabah joined Sarawak, Malaya, and Singapore (which later seceded) in forming the Federation of Malaysia. Known as the "Land Below the Wind" because it's south of the typhoon belt, Sabah occupies Borneo's northern tip. View more

It shares its southwestern border with Sarawak and the rest of its southern border with the Indonesian province of East Kalimantan. Today vast tracts of forest have been replaced by oil-palm plantations, and a sizable portion of remaining forest land is protected in national parks or conservation areas.On the shore of a deep bay, Sandakan was the capital of British North Borneo and one of the most important towns in Southeast Asia from the 1880s through the 1930s. But Japanese occupation during World War II and allied bombing virtually destroyed the town, and the capital was transferred to Jesselton (now Kota Kinabalu) in 1946. Sandakan enjoyed a revival in the 1970s as the center of the region's logging industry. Logging has since declined, but Sandakan is still worth visiting for its rich history and proximity to some of Borneo's most accessible wildlife attractions. Sandakan's downtown, much of it built on landfill, is squeezed between a steep promontory and Sandakan Bay. In recent years, this city of 450,000 (counting its extensive suburbs) has begun redeveloping its downtown waterfront into a shopping and nightlife hub. Its working harbor area for passengers and cargo is 6 km (4 miles) west of downtown.

Excursions in SANDAKAN (Sabah)

Orang Utan & Proboscis Monkey

Travel to two sanctuaries renowned for the protection and preservation of two of Borneo's most famous residents, the Orang utan and the Proboscis monkey, on this half-day nature exploration.


Depart the pier and begin the 45-minute drive to the Sepilok Orang utan sanctuary.


Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary

Established in 1964 to aid orphaned baby Orang Utan, this rehabilitation centre resides in the Kabili-Sepilok Forest, an enormous area of virgin rainforest. Found only in Borneo and Sumatra, the Orang Utans' survival is constantly threatened by forest fires, felling of trees, poaching, and illegal hunting. Here, the Orang Utan (in Malay 'man of the forest') are rehabilitated and returned to the wild, if possible. Witness Orang Utans, the 'Wild men of Borneo' emerging from the jungle to be fed.


Labuk Bay Sanctuary

In the centre of the mangrove forests of Semawang is the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, where you can see Borneo's indigenous proboscis monkeys.


This privately-owned sanctuary located within an oil palm estate gives you the chance to observe these animals up close and personal during their late morning feeding time. Endemic to the island, the Proboscis monkey is famous for its big pendulous nose and distinctive pot belly. As sources of their food dwindle due to diminishing habitats, the sanctuary has made efforts to supplement the monkey's diet with fruit and water daily to ensure the conservation of these animals. Watch the monkeys from a viewing platform. Silver Leaf monkeys may also be seen feasting on green beans.


Your tour concludes with the 1.5 hour return drive to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for a total distance of approximately a half of a mile (850 metres), including a 15-minute hike on a wooden walkway with steps and inclines; the walkways can become slippery if wet. Flat, non-slip soled walking shoes are suggested. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Avoid wearing the bright colours; it excites the Orang Utan. We recommend you bring a raincoat with head covering, a hat and binoculars. Guests should apply insect repellent before embarking the coach; Bring minimal items for this excursion as backpacks, handbags, insect repellent, food, drink, and/or any medications are not permitted inside the sanctuary. Complimentary lockers are available at the entrance.

Each guest are entitled maximum 1 camera per guest. Additional cameras must be paid directly to the Sepilok Centre (US $5 per camera; professional/commercial lens cameras are not permitted) and the Labuk Bay Sanctuary (US $5 per camera/video), at the time of printing. The sighting of wildlife cannot be guaranteed. Dress in lightweight cotton clothing in light of the humid conditions.

Orang Utan & Sun Bears

Discover some of the rarest wildlife species of the Bornean rainforest during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, the largest orangutan rehabilitation sanctuary in the world. The Bornean orangutan (Pongo Pgymaeus) is a species of orangutan native to the island of Borneo. Together with the Sumatran orangutan, it belongs to the only genus of great apes native to Asia. The Bornean orangutan shares up to 96.4% of the human genetic makeup, and is gentle, shy and curious by nature. Upon arrival, take a short, guided walk through the lowland dipterocarp forest to the observation platform. Here, watch the orangutans emerge from the forest to be fed by the rangers.


Sun Bear Conservation Centre

Next, proceed to the Sun Bear Conservation Centre. The sun bear, also known as the 'honey bear', is a bear found primarily in the tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia, Northeast India, Bangladesh and Southern China. The sun bear is the smallest member in the only eight known bear species in the world. In Sabah, Sun Bears are a totally protected species, with the same status as the Bornean orangutans and Sumatran rhinoceros. During your guided tour, view the sun bears from an observation platform whilst learning about their habits and habitat. Following your visit and a refreshment stop, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.8 miles (about 1.3 kilometres), at times over slippery surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 80 steps at the Sun Bear observation platform. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable, long-sleeve pants and a short-sleeve shirt with flat, non-slip walking shoes, and bring sun protection, raingear, a change of clothing and insect repellent from the ship; shorts and bare shoulders and midriffs are not permitted. Bags, duffle bags, camera bags, knapsacks, bottled water, and insect repellent are not permitted inside the Sepilok feeding platform. Guests may opt to leave their bags in the complimentary lockers available at Sepilok; however Sepilok is not responsible for any missing items. Guests may spray their insect repellent at the parking lot upon arrival at Sepilok, but not inside the jungle. No smoking is permitted at the feeding platform. Each guest will be given a drink coupon, which they can claim for their bottled water or soft drink at the Sepilok Canteen after the walk. A US$5 fee is required for cameras and small video cameras at Sepilok; commercial photography equipment is not permitted. Although frequently encountered on this type of tour, animal sightings are not guaranteed.

Sandakan Heritage

This tour provides an introduction and overview of Sandakan. Leaving the pier, drive to the water village.


Buli Sim-Sim Water Village

Due to the abundant marine resources, the local people began building over the water at the start of the last century. As the guide leads you through this maze of huts built on stilts, not only do you see the interesting construction of this village, but you can also observe the local lifestyle. Unfortunately, during low tide, rubbish in the sea below the houses can be seen.


St. Michael's Church

Stop by North Borneo's oldest church, the St. Michael's and All Angels church built with granite stones in 1893. One of the four structures remaining after World War II, the church is famous for its stained-glass windows. Designed by a well-known Australian artisan, Philip Handel, the windows were funded by the relatives of prisoners of war.


Agnes Keith's House

Capture a glimpse of the past as you visit Agnes Keith's house, a typical colonial house built in the early 20th century. Agnes Keith was an American author married to the former Conservator of Forest, who popularised the old seafarer's name of Sabah in her book Land Below the Wind.


English Tea House

Enjoy a cup of tea in the English Tea House with a choice of the familiar English scones or try a local hors d'oeuvre. Time permitting, walk to the observation pavilion if you wish, to see the views of the city before returning back to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking, some of which is uphill. It is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Operation of this tour is subject to a minimum participation. The tour is basic but shows the more interesting sites around the town.
