Visit a center of environmental education at Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC). Starting off as an environmental school, the center opened its doors to the public in 2007, maintaining its focus on conservation and education while broadening its appeal to younger and amateur visitors. Enjoy a stroll through the plant identification garden to learn about the vegetation that thrives in the surrounding nature reserve. Take a trip up to the 25 m (82) ft high canopy walkway to gain a new perspective on an area of thick rainforest--great for photographs and bird-spotting, and secure enough for kindergarten-age children. Our Sandakan trip planning website makes visiting Sandakan Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) and other Sandakan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • My wife and I visited the Discovery Center on a night safari. We were able to glimpse flying squirls, king fishers, and other nocturnal wildlife during our visit.

  • I was seriously surprised how good the evening walking tour was. We saw amazing flying squirrels, slow lorries, turtles, mouse deer, sleeping birds and all kind of insects. The guides were very good.....  more

  • Incredible opportunity to explore the Tree tops with the Canopy walk. This place has a garden to explore then turns into a nice walk. Could be long or short depending on your fitness level. Cafe inside for purchase of drinks and snacks but bring a camera. Lots of photo's everywhere to take!
  • I can highly recommend the night walk. It was the best one we had in Sabah. You can always see flying squirrel from the canopy walk and we also saw a slow loris.
