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.

Since we have never kayaked before, Vauzan gave us a briefing at the beginning. Everything worked wonderfully. The tour was absolutely worth it for us. We saw many animals (crabs, jumping fish, eagles, snakes, monitor lizards, kingfishers, etc.). Vauzan pointed out many animals to us and gave us very good information. The drive through the mangroves was really impressive. The program was rounded off by a short visit to the bat cave - very interesting. All in all, from our point of view, a very successful tour with a great guide who puts a lot of effort into it.

Small group, therefore a lot of peace during kayaking. Guide knew heaps about the area. The animals are fed at the Eagle watching place, which is nice to watch. We were allowed to swim at a beach and the best part: our guide took 100+ photos of us during the tour, so we had a lot of photos and videos of ourselves afterwards. Top!!!!

The tourguide was excellent, she knows everything about the flora and fauna. It seems she loves her jobb and She is a reál ambassador to rescue this area and the globe. Thanks her so much!

The guide had a lot of knowledge about the area and his english was very good. The tour groups are small, that made the whole experience even better.

Very fun experience for those who want to do something active. A different activity that is not too touristy. Nice and exciting nature.
