Myne Resort Bilit Sandakan Kinabatangan - Evening River Cruise

Depending on your preference to this; you can choose either an evening river cruise or an early morning river cruise or enjoy both of the cruise. Each river cruise set you on an adventure trail to experience first hand the remarkable wildlife and fascinating habitats along the bank of the river.

As we arrive at about 4pm, after a brief walk around the resort, we went for the leisurely evening river cruise. You can enjoy the cool breeze and forest fresh air that will relief all your body stresses. Occasionally, the boatmen will stop the boat when they spotted some wildlife in action along the banks. At one of the stop, we spotted long-tail macaques happily doing their monkey business.

The Myne Resort is one of the Kinabatangan river accommodation that has 16 chalets which are built along the banks of the Kinabatangan river. Most of its chalets are facing the river and you can get a serene and calm view of the river from your chalet. The rooms are airconditioned and equipped with the necessity for a comfortable rest for guests.

Myne Resort Bilit Sandakan Kinabatangan - Night Safari

After dinner, it was time for another highlight itinerary which is the night safari trek. As it was a walking tour, we were briefed on the trail by the guide.

He will be trekking the Merbau Trail. The Merbau Trail is named after the more than 100-year-old Merbau Tree that you will be able to see during your trek.

This tree with a hole underneath is said to be a hiding place for a villager to hide their daughter during Japanese occupancy in North Borneo. Inside the tree trunk, you will be amazed by the size of the trunk and the hollow trunk that perched to the top.

Myne Resort Bilit Sandakan Kinabatangan - Hornbill

We continued our trek and the next wonder we found during this night safari trekking is a hornbill nest with a pair of hornbill in a tree trunk. According to the guides, hornbills are always romantically inclined, so inside the nest, you will usually find a male and female bird in it. Bringing your own torch is handy as you can explore and find other insects on leaves along the trail.

Myne Resort Bilit Sandakan Kinabatangan - Wild Boar

Wild boars are aplenty at the Myne Resort, You can see them virtually roaming at the resort come night time. They usually hang around the resort during this time and by the early morning, they will be gone. Note: please do not approach these wild boars.

The next morning, we started early. After a simple breakfast at the cafe, we head off for a morning river cruise. We enjoyed the natural fresh morning air and the calm river as we travelled upstream seeking out with curiosity on what to expect.

In the morning, the Kinabatangan river will experience low tide, as therefore there is more to see on the river banks. Soon, our boatmen made the first stop, where they were 2 crocodiles basking on the banks of the river waiting for its prey. One of the crocodiles is a full-blown adult and is at least 3 to 4 metre long.
