Uncle Tan runs a reputable business of wildlife viewing trips out of thier B & B near Sandakan. Package trips take visitors from there to the the Kinabatangan River to view the wildlife from boat and hikes through the jungle. Lodging is in simple huts in the forest. The Kinabatangan is not entirely wildlife paradise. There are many pockets of secondary jungle here, but in between, massive oil palm plantations have been planted. The areas were completely logged out during the last few decades and in many places you can see the plantations from the boat. But for wildlife viewing this may actually be a good thing because the animals are pinned into narrow corridors on each side of the river and that makes them more visible from the boat trips.
