Brilliant and affordable stay at the Kinabatagan river. Pretty much get your own private boat while boats from other accommodations are full and crowded. Great to mingle with the family too. Azhkar is the best guide. Thanks so much!

Great experiences to see Orang Utans, Proboscis monkeys, Other type of monkeys, birds of nature and the cave Goa Gomantong . Take all 3 river cruises (6am/4pm/8pm). Time and value for money!

Helpful Questions from Our Community

Q
Will I definitely see Elephants and Orangutans?
A
No, we're afraid not. Kinabatangan River is one of the best places to see wildlife in Malaysia, as the wildlife mainly live around the small stretch of river. However, sometimes they do wander off to nearby palm plantations to feed for some weeks and then wander back to Kinabatangan River again. With wild animals, nothing is guaranteed - which is a little part of the magic too!
Q
What should I pack?
A
Binoculars
Hat
Insect Repellent
Raincoat
Sunscreen
