From here we were off to the magnificent Kinabatangan River for a two hour boat ride to our next destination. We saw orangutan, crocodile and proboscis monkeys, and the trip went very quickly. Our guide was superb, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English, as with all the people we met on this trip.
The Sukau Rainforest Lodge is a real gem on the riverbank. The villages you pass on the way up and down the river have no road access, so everything is by boat. We had two nights at this lodge and it was great. The accommodation once again was spotless, the food plentiful and good, and the service was incredible. What a great bunch of people, whose sole job is to make your stay a great one - and they succeeded!
We were very privileged to see a herd of 30 or 40 pygmy elephants grazing on the banks of the river and then we saw them cross, it was a splendid sight!
