VagabondWay: Pygmy Elephants in Borneo being Amazing and Joyfully Cute

“Oh my gosh! There! Can you see them – Pygmy Elephants!”

We’re all trying to be quiet standing on a small floating wooden dock along the Kinabatangan River in Malaysia, Borneo as we peer into the early morning mist.

“I see more! There’s more coming down and oh my gosh, there’s babies!”

Over the next twenty minutes we watched over 30 pygmy elephants swim across the Kinbatangan River.

We later realized just how lucky we were as the guides in the area had not seen elephants for 1.5 months.

Prior to that it had been 3 months since a sighting.

In terms of wildlife viewing, we just had been given a winning lottery ticket.
