River Cruise

(Day Trip)

Proboscis Monkey Wetland Tour gives us an opportunity to witness the unique monkey species of primates that is found exclusively on the Island Of Borneo. It is one of Nature’s charming jokes, a leaf-eating primate whose prominent nose and “sun burnt” appearance inspired the local name “Monyet Belanda” or “Dutch Monkey”.

The river cruise offers you the opportunity to explore the riverine habitat as you cruise through the Klias on a comfortable fiberglass boat in search of wildlife such as the Proboscis monkey, the Leaf monkey and the Kingfisher, amongst others.

On the day of the cruise, we will pick you up from your hotel, less then 2 hours overland to the southern part of Sabah. Light refreshments are provided before the beginning of the 2hr long river cruise. As you sail through the Klias, Proboscis Monkeys can be spotted on the surrounding trees feeding. Macaque Monkeys can also be observed, as well as the rare silver languor, water buffalo and a variety of birds. You may also witness the breathtaking sunset and thousands of fireflies twinkling amongst the mangrove trees like fairy lights while cruising back tothe River Lodge.

Upon reaching the Jetty, a sumptuous Malay Traditional dinner will be served. After dinner,   we will return to Kota Kinabalu city or hotel.

The river cruise is an exciting and enlightening experience for explorers of all ages.
