Brunei is pretty boring, to be honest. It wasn't at all what I expected... Unless you're collecting country stamps or traveling across Borneo there's little reason to go here.
Sepilok is OK - very, very touristy though. It's a stop on the package-tourist trail, so at the feeding times a swarm of people show up. I much preferred the orang utan sanctuary outside Kuching, Sarawak...
If you're an eco-lover where you should go is Sungai Kinabatangan. You can do multi-day trips staying at jungle lodge. Every day you go hiking and out on the river to look for wildlife (orang utans, proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, crocodiles, langurs, etc.). I spent about 2 months traveling across Borneo and it the highlight of the trip for me.
