Wildlife Sighting

Feed the Orang Utan. Bathe the elephant. Capture proboscis monkey on camera. Turn National Geographic into real experience of wildlife sighting.

Malaysia is home to some of the world’s most exotic and rarest wildlife. From the smallest pygmy elephant to the biggest Brooke Birdwing butterfly, over 600 species of birds, 210 species of mammals and thousands of exotic insects await your discovery.

Go visit the wildlife sanctuary and observe as well as take part in activities to care for the wildlife there.

To get up close with the omnivorous Proboscis monkey which is only found on the island of Borneo, head straight to Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary near Sandakan, Sabah and experience the unique life of over 30 proboscis monkeys. At the The Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre in Sandakan, and Matang Wildlife Centre, Sarawak, you can get to know and make friend with the endangered species, orang utan. Then proceed to the Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre in Pahang where you feed the elephants, swim with baby elephants and learn more about the rehabilitation of this harmless mammal. Besides visiting wildlife sanctuary, you can witness wild animals along jungle trekking, canopy walkway or tower built specifically for this purpose.
