Kinabatangan River, Borneo

Sabah’s longest river is home to an impressive array of wildlife and is a real highlight of any trip to Borneo.

A small boat will navigate you through the peaceful jungle backwaters and smaller river tributaries.

Along the banks, thick green rainforest provides a home for macaques, monitor lizards, elephants and, most famously, the proboscis monkey, with his unique colouring, large nose and harem of wives. Late afternoon is a great time to watch the monkeys as they jump from one side of the bank to the other in front of your boat.

The river is also a paradise for birdwatchers with a huge variety of species, including rhinoceros hornbills, crested serpent eagles and blue-banded kingfishers.
