Half day tour of Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary


| May 15, 2020

At 560km long, Kinabatangan is Sabah's longest river. In the extensive flood plains around Sukau this meandering river has created several oxbow lakes, making it an ideal environment for viewing some of the most interesting wildlife and birdlife to be found in Borneo. The Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 2005, and 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 Asian elephants and the extremely rare Sumatran rhinoceros. More than 200 bird species have also been identified here, including eight species of hornbill.
