Semporna Proboscis Monkey River Cruise

Enjoyable, but no monkey-guarantee

What we say: 3.5 stars

Considering how little there is to do in Semporna, this wildlife-spotting river cruise is a decent way to spend an evening.

The tour begins around 15:30 with pick-up from your hotel and a drive through the countryside to Sungei Buaya (Crocodile River). The late afternoon timing is ideal for seeing long-tailed macaques, hornbill birds, giant fruit bats and lizards basking on the riverbank, but you'll have to be lucky to glimpse the big-nosed proboscis monkeys.

If you are genuinely interested in Borneo wildlife, skip this and do a multi-day trip on the Kinabatangan River near Sandakan. The price includes pre-cruise tea and post-cruise seafood buffet.
