Sabah is the Malaysian region where it is easiest to see wildlife. The Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre near Sandakan is dedicated to nurse and reintegrate once captive orang utans into the wild. The centre is open for visitors who during the two daily feeding sessions are guaranteed to see orang utans. About 20km west of Sepilok lies the Labuk bay proboscis monkey sanctuary, which has been set up near a colony of proboscis monkeys. The animals here are completely wild, but show up twice a day during feeding sessions. Southwest of Sandakan lies the area with the best chances to spot wildlife in Malaysia, the Kinabatangan river. There is a high density of animals along the river and chances to spot orang utans, pigmy elephants, proboscis monkeys and other wildlife are very high. Further south is the Danum valley, an area of primary rainforest with lots of wildlife, which however is not so easy to see because it is hiding all the time deep in the forest or on the treetops. In the east of Sabah lies another wildlife centre, the Tabin Wildlife Reserve. The Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre is a patch of 24 hectares of coastal mangrove forest located at the outskirts of Kota Kinabalu.
