The Batang Ai area is home to the most significant population of wild orangutan in Sarawak. There are opportunites to spot pig-tailed macaques, hornbills and a variety of birds as well. It may be humid and hot in the jungle but there is plenty of refreshing clear water as well. Swim in the waterfall or the river to cool off.
