Full-day wildlife excursions on the Kinabatangan river


| May 15, 2020

At 560km long, Kinabatangan is Sabah's longest river. In the extensive flood plains around Abai, this meandering river has created several oxbow lakes, making it an ideal environment for viewing some of the most interesting wildlife and birdlife found in Borneo. The sanctuary is one of the two known places in the world to be inhabited by 10 species of primates, of which four are endemic to Borneo, and is thought to have the highest concentration of proboscis monkeys and orang utans in Malaysia. Among the larger mammals known to inhabit the sanctuary are elephantS and rhinos, while 200 bird species have been identified, including eight species of hornbill. There are plenty of opportunities to spot the wildlife, including boat trips and nature walks accompanied by a local expert guide.
