On the bank of Sabah’s longest river, the Kinabatangan River, Bilit Rainforest Lodge is situated strategically in the heart of numerous intriguing wildlife and fascinating habitats such as oxbow lakes, limestone caves, mangrove swamps and various types of tropical forests.
The Sandakan Crocodile Farm, located 12 km (half an hour overland drive) from Sandakan town, is Malaysia's largest with over 3000 of the reptiles in concrete pools. The crocodiles in this farm came originally in the wild found along the Kinabatangan River. Besides offering visitors an up-close look at Sabah's biggest reptiles, the farm hosts several other attractions as well, including crocodile and snake shows. It also features a mini zoo with a 100kg Amazonian fish, and a children's park.
