See at Sepilok, the world’s largest orang utan sanctuary, watch turtles lay their eggs and endemic proboscis monkeys with oversized, fleshy, pinkish nose. Included in this tour package is a visit to the largest birdnest cave in Sabah.
This tour will enable you to experience the diverse wildlife in Sabah, East Malaysia.

Sandakan located on the eastern seaboard of Sabah, is a city steeped in history. Its character is shaped by the hinterland that embodies Sabah’s rich and diverse biodiversity in all its glory.

Sandakan has an airport and is linked by road to Kota Kinabalu, the state capital, via Ranau.

With little more than an hour’s journey outside this bustling port city, you will discover forest reserves rich in wildlife such as orangutans, proboscis monkeys, brilliantly hued birds, crocodiles and elephants. In the vicinity is a renowned orangutan sanctuary at Sepilok (north), and the large Gomantong Caves (southwest) which are inhabited by swiftlets (whose nests are collected for birds’ nest soup, a Chinese delicacy) and a large colony of bats.

Offshore from the city are the famous Turtle Islands where visitors are able to view rare endangered marine turtles, or scuba dive to indulge in the beauty of the underwater world.
