Mangrove Safari along Kilim River: 4-Hour Kayaking Tour

1. Mangrove Safari along Kilim River: 4-Hour Kayaking Tour

Depending on the tidal conditions, you can begin the tour at the coast and make your way upriver through the lush Kilim Karst Geopark, or begin upriver and float down to the coast through a network of meandering river passages. Along the way, stop to explore the mysteries of the Bat Cave, or to observe some of the many exotic plants and animal species adapting ingenious ways to thrive in a habitat dictated by the ebb and flow of the ocean tides, including kingfishers, herons, mudskippers, and monitor lizards. After about 1.5 hour into your kayaking adventure, arrive at a local fish farm/floating restaurant where you can enjoy an optional lunch (if you select the option with lunch). Savor locally prepared ingredients including seabass and refreshments. Once you've finished your lunch and had a short rest, begin the leisurely journey back to your hotel.

On this tour, you will be able to see spectacular kingfishers, sea eagles, kites, plovers, herons, fiddler crabs and mud skippers. Pass a local fishing station where local fishermen go out to sea or return after a day out. Depending on the tidal conditions, you'll begin at the coast and head upriver or begin upriver, and head for the coast as you kayak with the flow of tidal currents. The kayak journey lasts about 1.5 hours, followed by a short drive to a Malay house for a delicious lunch.

A great experience!

First, they picked us up at our hotel and than we drove to the Mangroves. We started in a speedboat and sew the aigles flying and we visited a cave. After that we went to a fishfarm. We could leave our staff at the reataurant and then the adventure began! We were just two person and we had one kayak together. Fauzan was a really friendly und well-informed guide. He told us a lot about the nature and also about Malaysia in general. We really enjoyed the trip. After the kayaking we got nice local food on the floating restaurant. I would definitely do it again!

Great activity by nature

The guide was good, could tell us a lot. A great experience to sail the kayak through the mangroves. A delicious lunch as a conclusion.

Incredibly informative, perfect timing! Highly Recommended!
