Tamau Kota Belud River Cruise from Kota Kinabalu

Select Date and Travellers
4 travellers
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel lobby in Kota Kinabalu or other selected areas in the afternoon. Depart to Kota Belud, located around 75 miles (120 km) away, driving through a small town and paddy fields en route.

Upon arrival at Tamau Jetty in Kota Belud, light refreshments (tea, coffee, and cakes) will be served. Then, board a boat and embark on a river cruise in search of the endangered proboscis monkeys of Borneo, easily identified by their long noses. Learn from your guide about their natural habitat  and look for other interesting mangrove inhabitants such as  kingfishers, and the water monitor lizard. Observe typical scenes of village life while you watch children playing, fishermen returning home, or buffaloes wallowing in the water.

You'll return to the jetty for a 30-minute land transfer to the Nanamun River, optimally reached before sunset for excellent photo ops. Dig into a hearty dinner overlooking the river. When darkness sets in, embark on the boat again and head out to watch flickering fireflies lighting up the mangroves while stars illuminate the night sky.

After the bioluminescent show, you will return to Kota Kinabalu and transfer to your selected hotel.
