Downbelow specialise in adventure group travel offering a one month experience of Borneo.
During this one month adventure our clients spend a few nights staying on the Kinabatangan River.
Home to some of the most varied and easily accessible wildlife in all of South East Asia. At 350 mile or 563km, it is Sabah’s longest river and the second longest in the whole of Malaysia. Rising from the eastern Witta Range of Sabah, the Kinabatangan River runs north-easterly towards the Sulu Sea.
About 20 oxbow lakes form part of the lower regions of the river. Created over time and separated from the main river as erosion and deposits of soil changed the river’s course, oxbow lakes are paradise for bird watchers with over 200 species of birds. All 8 species of Borneo’s hornbill are seen regularly.
In addition to the birds, the river is also home to 10 other primates, making this one of only 2 places known on earth that has 10 primates! They include orang utan, proboscis monkey, macaques, maroon langur and Bornean gibbon.
You too can visit this fantastic attraction. Drop us an email or call us and we will explain more about this place and other interesting places in Sabah!
