Binocular specifications for River K.... animal spotting

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could advise me of the required specifications (magnification i think is the term) for binoculars for animal spotting / viewing on the various River Kinabatangan cruises.

Thank you for any assitance.

I did not use them. You get very close to nature.
