Great wild animals

Simply the best. I stayed 2N3D and saw elephants, crocodiles, many monkeys and birds. The river is calm and the weather was great. I strongly recommend this visit.

We stayed for 2 nights in a Jungle Camp on the Kinabatangan river as part of a 3 days/ 2 nights tour with Borneo Adventure. It was a fantastic tour and we saw so many animals (proboscis monkeys, long-tail macaques, short-tail macaques, silvered leaf monkeys, crocodiles, hornbills, king fishers, wild boars, etc). A highly recommended tour.

Orang utans, probiscus monkeys, and more. Our river trips were fabulous. If only we had seen a pygmy elephant and crocodile, we would be even more thrilled!

Lots of monkeys and assorted wildlife. Be sure you use the in house guides they are fantastic. We didn't and didn't get to see some of the things others saw ( we had our own private guide).

Really good for either 2d1n or 3d2n. Great river cruise to see pygmy elephants and monkeys on the way, and a comfortable relaxing place to stay. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Highly recommended
