Full description

Get back to nature on the Kubang Badak River, dominated by the low-lying estuary of the Sungai Kubang Badak. Explore the mangrove forest, full of wonderful flora and exotic wildlife. Look for native white-bellied sea eagles, brahminy kites, kingfishers, herons, mudskippers, fiddler crabs, and monitor lizards in their natural habitat. Marvel at the scenery of this beautiful area, and keep your eyes open for the resident otter family. Then, join a local family for a delightful home-cooked lunch. Take a short, 1475-foot trek through the jungle. Hike to a quiet pool and can cool down with a refreshing swim before the return journey to your resort.
