Overview of the Location

Weston Wetland Park is one of the largest river-mouth wetlands in North Borneo. It is 122 km of easy car journey from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah’s capital city.

Besides being one of the most scenic wetland parks in Borneo, the wildlife that exist within the area is what really creates a unique experience. From spotting endemic proboscis monkeys to the dazzling display of fireflies when night fall—nature-lovers will leave Weston Wetlands Park with a powerful sense of appreciation and understanding for the natural world.


Named “The Little Kinabatangan” because of the parallel experience it offers, alike to Kinabantangan’s river cruise, minus the hassle of air flights or a 7 hour overland journey.  However, there is nothing small about this tour. Little Kinabatangan hosts big wildlife wonders. Immerse in nature’s grandiose splurge of beauty, absorb the sights and sounds of the Borneo jungle from the deck of a traditional style river boat.

Get those binoculars on stand-by and keep your eyes peeled for the stunning primordial cratters and often unique wildlife encounters deep into the narrow rainforest creeks of the Weston River.

This tour grants you the opportunity of experiencing Sabah’s wild-side. Encounter primates such as the Pot-bellied Proboscis Monkey, spot hornbills, flying foxes as well as dashing silver-leaf langurs! Also, witness the magic of Borneo after-dark as you set out once more on a night river-safari offering dazzling firefly sightings & nocturnal wildlife spotting.
