Overview

River Cruise has become an increasingly popular way of exploring and appreciating a fascinating aspect of the beauty of Sabah nature, especially the wildlife in the biodiversity-rich mangrove ecosystems and also the very rare species Proboscis Monkeys which can be found only in Borneo.If the idea of cruising along a meandering river and catching glimpses of Proboscis Monkeys, Fruit Bats (a kind of bats which consume fruits and nectars). Crocodile scores of fireflies and other creatures sound exciting to you, then you should not miss the maiden Borneo Semporna Proboscis River Cruise.

There are many river packages to check out for.. But, I shall recommend this one as the operators are skilled and trained and professional too.

We saw short tail monkeys, long tail monkeys, but didn't see long-nosed monkeys. We also saw eagles and egrets!

This is a cozy boat trip along the river. You get to see lots of Proboscis monkets which is pretty fun. Nice scenery but definitely not the highlight of my trip
