During the closure of RDC, we are taking the opportunity to repair all the three towers at the Canopy Walkway. See you there soon!!

The current Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in the Sandakan district will be updated by the government on the 6th December. So RDC may or may not be reopened by then.

The Canopy Walkway extension to the Hornbill Tower is almost done. Hopefully, when RDC reopens, you will be able to walk all the way to the Hornbill Tower from the walkway entrance.

RDC will be closed to the public once again to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in the East Coast of Sabah and also to protect our staff. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Our Flying Squirrel Zipline will be back in operation during the month of September...duebto popular demand! 50% discount still apply!!

Good news for birders and visitors!! The extension of the Canopy Walkway is progressing well. It will be fully completed by the end of September.

The Flying Squirrel Zipline will be operational during these few days (today until Sunday, 20th-23th August). Come try it out at the discounted price!!

The Canopy Walkway is a good place to take pictures of the Milky Way...if you are lucky to get clear skies.

The rainforest are home to half of the Earth's plant and animal species. It's truly unbelievable, rare and diversified. This is the place you can discover more about our amazing planet, flora and fauna.

We did the 14km ( 9 mile ) hike in the back, first thing. It costs 15rm extra for foreigner to get permit, but no one checked. It ends at a little place in the mangroves that has water for sale when we went. After the hike, we explored the rest of the park and saw urangutan, they were wild. We saw tons of other small animals so keep your eyes open. Highly recommend, entire park is awesome.
