You, Me & Friends “Favourite Places” ***Kelenanap Oxbow Lake***

Jun24: Whist staying at the Sukau Rainforest Lodge on our Borneo Wildlife Adventure, we will embark on a river cruise up the Kinabatangan River to the Kelenanap Oxbow Lake. This lake is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by intrepid travelers seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure. As we venture into this pristine wilderness, you will immediately be struck by the serene beauty of the lake, its tranquil waters reflecting the green canopy overhead.

Formed over centuries by the meandering course of the Kinabatangan River, this oxbow lake has evolved into a thriving ecosystem, home to a diverse array of flora and fauna. As our boat glides along the calm waters, we will be greeted by the sight of majestic hornbills soaring overhead, and colorful kingfishers darting across the surface.

One of the highlights of our exploration will be encountering the resident population of proboscis monkeys, their distinctive calls echoing through the forest as they leap from tree to tree in search of food. We may also get the privilege of spotting rare bird species such as the elusive storm’s stork and vibrant oriental darter, adding to the excitement of our wildlife encounter.

As we venture deeper into the heart of the oxbow lake, we will be enveloped by the peaceful ambiance of the surrounding rainforest, a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. A moment of pure tranquility, to allow us to reconnect with nature and appreciate the beauty of this pristine wilderness.

The Kelenanap Oxbow Lake is not just a destination, it’s an immersive journey into the heart of Borneo’s natural wonders, offering a glimpse into the untouched beauty of this remarkable ecosystem.




Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
