What To Expect

Klias Wetland is a mangrove forest reserve and a destination quickly gaining popularity with tourists. Catch it before it becomes a tourist hotspot and experience the best of Kilas while it's still quiet and pristine. One of the major attractions is, of course, the chance to spot the rare Proboscis Monkeys. The tree-dwelling celebrities typically show up after sunset, so make sure you keep your eyes out for them as you sail along the river. You'll also enjoy a delicious dinner onboard and watch fireflies dance in the night sky.

    The proboscis monkey and firefly watching along Klias river was a magical experience. The fireflies twinkling in the trees really caught my attention. Other animals like lizards and fish could also be seen here. The sunset view was magical. Definitely a recommended tour.
  • Aisa 28 Jul 2018
    The fireflies are awesome! It makes you appreciate its glow at night. You can also see crocodiles and monkeys as well.
  • GLENN MARK 9 Jul 2018
    We really enjoyed this activity. It fits travellers who want chill activities and just enjoy the view. It was a fine night and the fireflies really showed up and same as through with the monkeys during the afternoon.
  • Jean Camille 7 Jul 2018
    We had a really friendly tour guide and driver. They were also very punctual. We were lucky enough to see plenty of monkeys. The fireflies cruise was probably the best part of the tour. Overall, it was a fun and unique experience.
  • Catherine 1 Jul 2018
    we saw a lot of different types of monkeys, we have dinner buffet and the most i like is seeing a lot of fireflies just like christmas lights blinking at night.
  • Sheila Christine 25 Jun 2018
    This one's cool! literally cool because we get to soak in rain showers which is awesome! The guide is really knowledgeable. You'd get that "Oooh", "Woooow", etc. reactions when you get to try this! We enjoyed the activity and the food as well! 😊
  • Michael Jr 23 Jun 2018
    Very informative. The tour guide knew a lot about the monkeys and the fireflies. Food was great too! Meow
  • John Michael 3 Jun 2018
    The actual river is pretty far from the city, like a 2-hour travel by van. The travel time is not a big thing, really, but I don't think the sights and the experience warrant that much. The river is bland, the monkeys too far to get a decent picture without long ranges lenses, and the fireflies nice but never the same as in the pictures posted. Additionally, the transport surcharge for 1 Borneo pickup is unexpected, considering we also had a Kinabalu Park/Desa Farm tour which took about as much travel time as Klias River Tour but without the transport surcharge.
