Orang-Utan Conservation Project in Sepilok Rehabilitation Center in Borneo, Malaysia
         

I feel that this placement has been the most wonderful and rewarding experience ever! From start to finish we were looked after extremely well by Travellers and the staff at Sepilok.

New volunteers should start the placement with an open-mind and be able to accept that some cultures can be very different from their own. Anyone doing this placement needs a good sense of humour, patience and a willingness to get involved without worrying about getting their hands dirty!

Some of the highlights of my placement were: meeting people with the same interests as myself, seeing a wild elephant (on the Sukau excursion), drinking tea and playing croquet at the English Tea house in Sandakan and visiting Malaysian Karaoke bars! 

I knew my time here would be amazing but I think that is an understatement! I will never forget my time spent in Malaysia and all of the new friends that I have made.

Thank you to everyone at Travellers for making a life-time's ambition come true.
