The Kinabatangan is a huge river, stretching 560km from the Crocker Range in the southwest of Sabah to the Sulu Sea in the east. The lower basin of the river itself is the largest forest covered floodplain in Malaysia and has the largest concentration of wildlife in the South East Asian region. A trip up the river at dawn or dusk is one of the best opportunities in the world to see wildlife outside of an African safari park.
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) the Kinabatangan River is one of only two known places on Earth where 10 primate species can be found (a list which includes the beautiful borneo Orang Utan, as well as Proboscis Monkeys and Bornean Gibbon). You can also expect to see Crocodiles lounging on the river banks, Reticulated Pythons hanging from trees, Hawks, Eagles, Hornbills and Kingfishers flying overhead and, if you are there during the right time of the year, you may catch sight of a herd of charming Borneon Pygmy Elephants, feeding on the edge of the Kinabatangan River.
