The Kinabatangan river is one of the best and most easily accessible places to see wildlife in Asia! The population density of animals on this stretch of the Kinabatangan river is second to none, including so much of Sabah's most sought after wildlife: Orang-utans, proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, langurs, wild cats, crocodiles, amazing birdlife and much much more! We recommend you take a 3 day 2 night Kinabatangan river trip as this will give you the best chances of seeing as much wildlife as possible. Over the course of 3 days you will be surrounded by nature, join sunrise & sunset river cruises, trek through the jungle and also get the chance to experience the jungle at night, on night walks.

Semporna is a town on the island of Borneo, in the Malaysian state of Sabah. It’s the gateway to Tun Sakaran Marine Park, a group of 8 islands with dive sites on the Kapikan and Church reefs. Bodgaya Lagoon is home to eagle rays and barracudas. On Bohey Dulang Island, the rocky Bohey Dulang Nature Trail has panoramic views. Hawksbill and green turtles hatch their eggs on the biodiverse Pom Pom Island.
