Other couples go to the zoo; why not immerse yourselves in Mother Nature and catch a glimpse of rare and endangered species in their natural environment?

Book an eco-lodge along Sabah’s Kinabatangan River in East Malaysia and have the most amazing honeymoon stories to tell your friends.

Wake up in your eco-friendly riverside lodge to hear the haunting calls of spider gibbons booming across the river from their unseen forest hideouts. Watch the magnificent Rhinoceros Hornbill as it shows off its two-metre wingspan or forages for fruits on a fig tree. Or hire a guide to go in search of the Bornean Pigmy Elephant, the big-nosed Proboscis Monkey or Orang Utans building their nests high in the canopy.

Don’t forget to book a night cruise down the river. On this magical journey, you might come within a couple metres of brightly-coloured Stork-billed Kingfishers sleepy peacefully on a low-hanging branch. Or see the ominous slit eyes of little crocodiles lurking in the shallows. Or even catch a rare glimpse of the Bornean Clouded Leopard as it stalks its prey.
