Pitas Oxbow Lake
Kinabatangan River, Borneo, Malaysia
Take an early morning boat ride along the Kinabatangan River to the Pitas Oxbow Lake. This is a great spot to try and catch site of some of the area's incredible wildlife, which can include proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants and crocodiles.
The lower Kinabatangan River is a protected area, and has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Borneo. Early morning is a good time to see the local animals as they emerge from their nighttime hideaways for water and food.
