Kinabatangan River

At a length of 560km this is the longest river in Sabah and offers a staggering amount of wildlife along its rainforest waterways and within its oxbow lakes. The area around Sukau is particularly renowned for proboscis monkeys which arrive in large groups at the trees of the river banks during late afternoon. Borneo pygmy elephants are found here too, as are wild orang-utans, macaques, gibbons, silvered langur and maroon langur monkeys. Birds include all eight species of hornbill, oriental darter and the large buffy fish-owl.
