  • Brief Directions: The best way to visit is to book a stay through one of the jungle lodges operating on the Kinabatangan River. They will take care of your transportation from Sandakan or Sepilok.

  • Best Season: Summer
  • Gear: Telephoto or zoom lenses with image stabilization technology, ph
