    Borneo River Jungle

    December 14, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Picked up at 7 and had a long drive (7 hours) across the island,past Mount Kinabalu, to the Borneo Natural Sakau Bilit Resort on the Kinabatangan River. Unbelievable to see the amount of palm tree plantations, all standing where jungle once stood. We had a long early evening boat ride up river and saw one of the two types of animals we really wanted to see - the proboscis monkeys with big droopy noses). There were long tailed macaques, hornbills and a wild boar too. On our return the night sky kept lighting up as a thunderstorm passed by in the distance. Our guides head torch picked up the eyes of some tiny crocodiles from about 150 meters away.Read more
