Enjoy a thrilling and educational adventure! You’ll begin your journey with a 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Kota Kinabalu to the starting point of the rafting at the Kiulu river. You’ll be given a safety briefing by the Riverbug professional guide before commencing with the rafting. The whole excursion takes about 3 hours depending on the water level; 2 hours (15km) when the water level is high and 1.5 hours (9km) at average water level. When you reach the end point, you will enjoy a BBQ lunch before departing to the Garama river.
At the Garama river, you will hop on a leisurely 1 hour 45 minutes river cruise in search of the proboscis monkey and other wildlife along the river bank. A buffet dinner will be served among the glittering lanterns which light up the area. If the weather permits, you’ll even be able to catch glimpses of fireflies slowly lighting up and decorating the mangrove trees.
