About this book

The Kinabatangan, Sabah’s longest river, is one of the most exciting and easily accessible places to explore the rich biodiversity of Sabah. From Kampung Abai near the river mouth, on to the major village of Sukau and further upriver as far as Batu Putih, the lower Kinabatangan offers an incredible opportunity to see a large range of wildlife including Borneo’s unique proboscis monkeys, the orangutan, Bornean pygmy elephants, crocodiles, otters and countless rare and beautiful birds.

This well-illustrated Sabah Colour Guide: Kinabatangan reveals the fascinating history of the lower Kinabatangan; its people, the Orang Sungei, and the plants and animals that can be discovered in its differing habitats. It also acts as a practical guide to accommodation and transport in the region, easily reached from Sandakan or Kota Kinabalu. I feel confident that this guide, a companion to Colour Guides already published on Sandakan and Kudat, will contribute towards the development of tourism in this vitally important region.
