River Cruise & Wildlife Animal

The Kinabatangan River (Sungai Kinabatangan) is located in Sabah (Borneo), eastern Malaysia. It is the second longest river in Malaysia, with a length of 560 kilometers from its headwaters in the mountains of southwest Sabah, to its outlet at the Sulu Sea, east of Sandakan.

The Ecology - Kinabatangan River

The ecology of the Kinabatangan river provides sanctuary for a population of saltwater crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus), and contain some of Borneo's highest concentrations of wildlife. Of special note are Borneo's indigenous proboscis monkeys, Bornean orangutan, Asian elephants, Sumatran rhinoceros and the endemic Borneo river shark. The area is also known for its great variety of birdlife. Each year, the lashing rains of the northeast monsoon cause the river to swell rapidly. Unable to disgorge into the sea quickly enough, the river frequently overflows its banks and spreads across the flat land of its lower reaches, creating a huge floodplain.

The lower Kinabatangan teems with animal and plant life, making it the best area for viewing wildlife.

The Kinabatangan region can be visited all year round, though it is often flooded during the wettest part of the year in December and January. The main flowering and fruiting season, from April to October is generally fairly dry and a good time to spot many birds and animals. During the northeast monsoon, from November to March, there are often heavy showers during the afternoons, particularly during December and January. During the rainy season, however, it is possible to negotiate many of the river channels leading into the oxbow lakes, where there is a greater concentration of wildlife.
