And visitors get a great chance to watch these fascinating animals up close.

You can also visit the Lower Kinabatangan River Sanctuary and the Gomotong Caves if you’re interested unusual animals. You can see quite a number of primate species. You can also see rhinos, which are sadly decreasing in number these days.

Along the way to these areas, you can visit the city of Kota Kinabatangan and especially the palm plantation nearby. If you have a little more time, you can visit Kampung Village and get a taste of the local hospitality.

Another two amazing spots to see on your Sandakan nature safari are the Kinabatangan River and the Bilit Ox-Bow Lake. One thing is for sure: the image of the river when sunk in the mysterious morning mist is certainly worth the trouble of waking up early.

There is a fantastic number of primates in the area, the most popular being the unusual Proboscis monkey and Leaf monkey. If you are fortunate, you’ll even get to see the Borneo pygmy elephant, which is the tiniest breed of elephant in the world. Also, you can also enjoy the tasty meals and beverages of the traditional Borneo Island cuisine.

Book your Sandakan nature safari and escape to an amazing, wild world.
