Descriptor: A local fisherman casts his net in a tributary of the Kinabatangan River, near Sandakan, Sabah, East Malaysia (Borneo). Fishermen have used this technique for centuries in the wild and natural rivers of East Malaysia and other parts of Borneo. The Kinabatangan River is about 2.5 hours fast bait ride from Sandakan on the north-eastern side of Borneo and is one of the most wild and natural places on the planet. Electric motors are used on the wildlife spotting boats to allow visitors to get up close to rare and endangered species of birds and animals. Overnight accommodation is provided at Sukau River lodge, rated on of the top 20 eco-lodges in the world by National Geographic Magazine in 2016. The area is home to endangered species such as Orang Utang, Proboscis Monkey, Macaques, Borneo Gibbon, Pygmy Elephant, Hornbill, Eagles and Hawks. All of which can be seen in the wild at certain times of the year.
