About this book

Wild Sabah is a magnificent photographic evocation of the natural splendours of the state of Sabah in Malaysian Borneo. From the peaks of Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in Asia between the Himalayas and New Guinea, to the floodplains of the Kinabatangan river, Sabah teems with wildlife, and the natural history of the region is described with verve and passionate enthusiasm by expert author Junaidi Payne. Landscapes, scenery, and natural species are portrayed in Cede Prudente's spectacular accompanying photographs. Two full-page maps show physical terrain, climate, vegetation, and the principal wildlife watching sites.
