The rehabilitated animals are to be released back into the wild once they are independent and able to find food for themselves.

We continue to to the Annah Rais Bidayuh Longhouse. During your tour, you will be able to witness everyday activities of the Bidayuh people, such as rice pounding and winnowing, basket and mat-weaving, and bamboo carving, among other things.

Santubong Wildlife River Cruise

After lunch and check out, you will be transferred from your hotel to the Sarawak Boat Club where you will get on your boat for a cruise to the mouth of the Santubong River. Here, sightings of the Irrawaddy dolphins have often been reported. However, dolphin-spotting is not guaranteed and it all depends on your luck.

Your boat will then take you through the mangrove-lined rivers for a wildlife-spotting adventure. As it gets darker, you will be able to see the adorable Proboscis monkeys hanging out on treetops, often in harems. Keep an eye out for crocodiles too, crawling on the mud banks or swimming in the calm waters. A caveat: please don’t dip your hands in the water!

After crocodile-spotting, next you will get a chance to see twinkly fireflies gathering by the riverbanks. Watch as they flicker around the mangrove branches, like beautiful Christmas lights by the riverbank before returning to the Sarawak Boat Club.

After the tour, you will be transferred to Damai Beach Resort for your next accommodation.
