The Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC)

The Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC), is a centre for environmental education situated within the fampus Kabili Sepilok Reserve, home of orang utan of the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. With the rain forest just 20 KM away from Sandakan Airport and only 24 Km (14 miles) from Sandakan Town.

This is a must visit place for plant lovers. Some of the most interesting plants in this garden are our native orchids (more than 250 species), slipper orchids, pitcher-plants, arid land plants, aquatic plants, economic crops and some of the most spectacular tropical American plants, such as the Bromeliads and Venus flytrap. In the garden, there are many colorful information panels to enhance your educational experience.

The 147 m-long sturdy, steel canopy walk is the most accessible in Sabah. Designed for high visitor traffic, you will never have to wait in line againto get up the canopy.

This walkway enables you to have a spectacular view of the beautiful rain forest of Sepilok from up to 28 m above the forest floor.

Walk among rainforest giants like the mangaris tree and other large dipterocarps and experience forest life high in the canopy.

 

The walkway and towers are also great for birds-watchers to steal a glimpse of our resident Bornean bristleheads, one of the rares birds in Sabah. Apart from that, there are another 250 species of birds to lookout for, including hornbills, pittas, kingfishers and broadbills.
