Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

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!

How do I get there?
A
The closest city to Kinabatangan River is Sandakan, which can be reached by flight from many of the major airports in Malaysia or overland from within Borneo via ground transportation.
