Wildlife spotting in Sabah is exceptional on the eastern coast of the state, and is an experience always best in the wild!
Downbelow’s Expedition Borneo program, for our adventurers’ who have just arrived in Kota Kinabalu not even a week ago, is a 30-day experience program in which time they will gain an appreciation for the natural beauty in Sabah, Borneo. Ecotourism is our chosen form of responsible travel and tours, and each of the adventure activities of our Expedition Borneo program, are conducted with this as a priority for our clients to appreciate their global footprint is reduced as much as possible!
Along the Kinabatangan River, participants have the opportunity to spot rare and endemic animals, such as orang utan, proboscis monkeys, macaques, crocodiles, and if they are incredibly lucky there are Bornean pygmy elephants (though a very slim chance, because of their low population!)
Boats used for the river cruises do not have a roof, so when Sabah Travel Centre Manager Alice delivers the presentation on their wildlife safari activity, they are encouraged to visit our KK Dive Shop (only next door!). They are advised to invest in a rashguard in particular, which they can use for ALL of their activities – from learning to scuba dive on the PADI Open Water Diver course to climbing Mount Kinabalu!
