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.

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

This is a relaxing boat ride, & since the monkeys are in the wild it is quite difficult to see them, they are also shy animals , so be patient while looking for them . There is also a ride to find the egret, if...More

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

It is very very difficult to see the proboscis as they are not many and shy. The staff spotted a few proboscis in mangrove forest but we could not see their faces as blocked by leaves. We just saw their bodies when they moved. The...More
