Kinabatangan River, Malaysia (1080HD) Travel Video


The Kinabatangan River begins its remarkable
journey deep in the mountainous interior of Sabah and snakes it’s way for 560km through
a diverse range of habits. From the misty highland forests, to the limestone
caves, freshwater swamps, oxbow lakes and mangroves of the coast, the river is a vital
natural corridor that links the interior to the sea. Rich cultural heritage too, the Kinabatangan
has for centuries been a vibrant social and commercial thoroughfare to the river-people
and traders of Eastern Sabah. While much of the countryside around the upper
reaches has been altered by logging and plantation clearing, the lower floodplains remains the
best place in all of Asia to experience wildlife and nature. The 27,000 hectare Kinabatangan
Wildlife Sanctuary is the crown in a network of conservation areas on the coastal lowlands
of Sabah, and is home to a simply astonishing range of plant and animal life. Wildlife river tours offer visitors the chance
to experience a breathtaking landscape teeming with bird-life, crocodiles, orang-utans, proboscis
monkeys, and, the chance to see rare Asian elephants and rhinoceros. The Lower Kinabatangan River is now an epicentre
for conservation programmes, responsible tourism initiatives, and award winning eco-lodges
– ensuring that this special part of wild Asia remains wild forever.
