End Oct & early Nov a good time for viewing wildlife in Borneo?

Hello, Has anyone been to Borneo in end Oct or early Nov in recent years? We are thinking of going to Kinabangtan River and Danum Valley. As it's the start of wet season, wondering if perhaps too cloudy or rainy for seeing wildlife. Is it better to wait and go elsewhere during that period? Also, has anyone been to Lankayan Island during that period? Still good time for snorkelling or bad visibility. Any thoughts much appreciated. Thank you.

We were in the Danum Valley in November a number of years ago. Everything was very green and beautiful. We saw plenty of wildlife, but I understand it isn't considered the best time of the year to go. The best time is when the trees have fruit on them as it brings the animals in to eat. That said, that is when most people go.

Thank you Kathie. We might hold off and go to Laos instead.

Hi there,
We've been to Kinabatangan River exactly 5 years ago and saw the elephants very closely, impressive! Please, have a look at the pictures here: http://konniandmatt.blogspot.com/200...-oct-2009.html Weather was very good, when we were there
Happy Travels!
Cheers, Konni, www.konniandmatt.blogspot.com
