Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary


The Kinabatangan river sustains one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. Its lower basin has the largest forest-covered floodplain in Malaysia. Exotic wildlife such as orang utans, proboscismonkeys, Asian elephants and Sumatran rhinos roam free in the jungle. There are many tour agencies in Sukau that can arrange accommodation, transfers and tours. Sukau is 135km from Sandakan.

Must do:

  • Go on a river safari to spot the wildlife and birds
  • Join a night tour to view crocodiles and nocturnal birds
  • All eight species of hornbills found in Borneo reside here – try and spot them!
  • Join a homestay programme in the nearby villages
