Pygmy Elephant Spotting at Sukau

Adorably majestic, yet incredibly humble, the Borneo Pygmy Elephant is a very special member of the jungle clan. Combine their grand diet and impressive daily travel, and you get a creature that not only helps keep the rainforests healthy, but provides nutrients for other wildlife.

Spreading seeds all through the forest, in their own way, these fine mammals are like the jungle’s own personal superhero. So it’s no wonder they’ve earned a place right at the top of most animal spotting lists.

Based along the banks of the Kinabatangan River, the Sukau Rainforest Lodge boasts one of Borneo’s best locations to observe these gentle giants. A natural congregation spot for many species, don’t be surprised if they’re not alone.
