Sukau is a tiny fishing village and a rare pearl situated off the usual tourist track. Tucked along the Kinabatangan River, Sukau offers glimpses of Borneo’s rainforests and swampy marshland. Wildlife enthusiasts and bird lovers alike will have much to admire in these jungles of Sabah. If you are lucky, you will see herds of Pygmy elephants as they bathe and play along with the river, catch orangutans in their natural habitat, and a host of other primates native to the jungles as they swing by the thick canopy of trees. Discover Borneo’s native proboscis monkeys, and flocks of exotic and colorful birds. Don’t forget to feast on the region’s fresh river catch and luscious jungle fruits!
