    It was told by the guide how lucky we are to have the weather favor us, first activity was sunny allowing monkeys to show and quite foggy/drizzly on the afternoon for the fireflies to appear. And yes the boat ride was fun and the food was amazing too. Perfect combination for a well organized activity. Great!

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.

    River cruise location is way too far, not worth the long drive. Buffet dinner was ok.
  • WAN JING 24 Sep 2018
    It took about 2.5 hours in the car to get the the river. We had some food when we arrived, the food was very simple. We started our journey on the boat to see the monkeys. The monkeys were so cute and shy in between the trees. The tour guide did a very good job explaining all of our questions about the monkeys. Then we had some dinner in th camp. After dinner we got back to the river to see the fireflies, although there were not a great amount of them, but it was still amazing to see them.

    The tour in itself was great, nice 2 hour ride to Klias, great guide who was funny and informative about the Proboscis Monkeys as well as knowledge on the Fireflies and where the largest ones can be found in the world. Very relaxing tour while having a tea time and a dinner time in between seeing monkeys on the river and seeing the fireflies in the late evening. I would definitely do it again.
    Richard Kam is the best. He is very polite and tries his best to communicate with us japanese, korean and filipino. He was ready althrough out the cruise and even brought his pointer, binocular, etc. He made sure we enjoyed the cruise experience as much as we enjoyed the food; he even gave us free rambutan.

    Another place in Sabah for tourists to be connected with nature and have a glimpse of the Proboscis Monkeys and see groups of fireflies at night. Guests will also enjoy the buffet dinner.

    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.

    The fireflies are awesome! It makes you appreciate its glow at night. You can also see crocodiles and monkeys as well.
