Located on the Klias Peninsula is the Klias Wetland, a Mangrove Forest Reserve. With the bizarre-looking proboscis monkey gaining as much popularity as the orangutan, the Klias Wetland with its large population of this wildlife is fast becoming the latest ecotourism destination in Sabah.

These tree-dwelling animals normally hunt for food in the evenings, hence most boat cruises for this tour depart the Kota Klias jetty at around 3.00 pm. Other riverside residents that you can spot are macaques, crocodiles, monitor lizards, tree snakes and birds such as the eagle.

Returning back on the jetty, enjoy a natural light show when hundreds of fireflies put on a glowing performance for you to marvel.

If you are looking for this exciting cruise, inquire with your ground handler or any licensed local tour operator to book your cruise. Walk-in guest is recommended to pre-booked ahead.
