River Cruise - Proboscis and fireflies Tour
Pick up from hotel lobby.
Begin your journey to Kota Klias Peninsula (approximately 112km from Kota Kinabalu city), passing by some local villages, small towns and local roadside fruit stalls. Klias is located in between the small town as well as district of Beaufort and Kuala Penyu. Upon arrival, you will be served a simple local style high tea before proceeding for the river cruise.
During the river cruise, you will be able to spot many wildlife habitats like the long tail macaque, birds such as Kingfishers, darter, eagle and of course the Proboscis Monkey. You will be able to differentiate the female and male proboscis monkey by their appearance and behavior. As you cruise till darkness set in, witness and be amazed by nature's Christmas lighting, the fireflies! Depending on weather condition and luck, you might even spot nocturnal animals like the flying fox and night bats. Do bring along binoculars to have a better view of the animals.
After the exciting river cruise, head back to the jetty for a sumptuous dinner spread which typically consists of meats marinated in different styles, rice, potatoes and veggies.
After dinner, depart for Kota Kinabalu and transfer to your respective hotel.
