Klias Wetland's River Safari

A must for nature enthusiasts, this fascinating river safari takes you in search of the local Proboscis monkeys, Silver Leaf monkeys and crocodiles. Then, after a tasty buffet dinner, keep your eyes peeled for fireflies that spectacularly light up the river banks.

Situated around 120 kilmetres south of Kota Kinabalu, the Klias Wetlands is a haven for animal and birdlife.

Travel south to the Klias wetlands for a river cruise in search of wildlife such as the elusive long nose Proboscis monkey, the mischievous macaques and myriad species of birds that inhabit this unique reverie environment.

As dusk falls, look out for crocodiles lurking by the riverbanks.

On a moonless night, be mesmerized by the flickering lights of fireflies against the night sky.

Enjoy a village-style dinner and immerse yourself in the sounds of nature in this rustic setting. Next, it's time for the main event - reconvene your short river cruise to observe the spectacular flickering fireflies as they light up the river banks. One of nature's great spectacles!

Please note: There is an additional surcharge for transfers from Kinarut hotels such as Langkah Syabas / Berringis Resort. Please add this at time of booking if your hotel is located in this area.
