Monkeys and Fireflies Rivercruise

This tour offers a perfect opportunity to experience the true jungle and wildlife in one of Borneo’s beautiful wetlands.

Just couple of hours away from Kota Kinabalu city lies the quaint little village of Tamau, Kota Belud. The river cruise begins along the Tempasuk river where you will be able to observe wildlife, such as the Proboscis Monkey with its protruding belly and signature big nose. The Proboscis Monkeys can be found amidst the mangrove trees foraging, resting and feeding. Other mangrove wildlife that you might be able to spot are the cheeky long-tailed macaques, river otters, kingfishers and more!

Other than the wildlife-spotting, the breathtaking village panorama along the cruise will equally fascinate you. For the second cruise of the day along the Nanamun river, prepare to be amazed by the ‘Christmas Tree’ effect by the gorgeous fireflies on the riverbanks!

Included: English speaking guide • Land & Boat transfer • Entrance fees • Life jacket • Light refreshment & local traditional dinner • Transport to and from Kota Kinabalu
