Skip this. Not worth it.
dec. 2019
The place looks like a large shack by the river.

The lifejackets are old and worn out. Many of them are ripped at the seams and have zips that don't work.

The boats are old but usable. Sometimes, the drivers would smoke. Luckily ours smoked at the end of the trip and the breeze was blowing the smoke out of our direction so I didn't bother to tell him not to smoke.

We couldn't see the Probocis monkeys. Just a shade of orange by the trees far away. It's better to go to a reputable zoo. The river has some garbage like plastic bottles in it too.

We didn't try the food. When we came in, there were 2 men who were sitting close by the food table. We assume they must be the servers. One of them was smoking.

The bathrooms were dirty. And they didn't have any soap. Since they cook on-site, imagine what the cooks/ servers would not do after they do their bathroom business.

Eventhough we would love to see the fireflies, we didn't feel safe eating the provided dinner that is already pre-arranged before the fireflies activity. We also had 4 kids who will be hungry. So we decided to skip the dinner and fireflies and went back to Kota Kinabalu for dinner.

Don't bother with this trip. And take the negative reviews of this trip seriously. It is not worth it!

紅樹林生態半日遊
okt. 2019 • Venner
半日遊,到紅樹林觀察生態,只有見到長尾猴、四腳蛇還有螢火蟲。

夜裡的螢火蟲在樹上閃爍著,明明萬聖節都還沒到,樹林已被佈置成耶誕樹的感覺,謝謝螢火蟲們給我一個如夢似幻的夜晚,雖然只有短短幾分鐘,但真的很難忘。

It was really sad seeing and hearing bulldozers in the background clearning land. The forest was really thin in places.

長鼻猴 螢火蟲 水獺
jul. 2019 • Familierejse
從亞庇到這裡的路途很遠,但長鼻猴沒有威士頓紅樹林多,這次有看到水獺。長鼻猴跟螢火蟲都是遠眺,當地的商家環境很差,並不是舒適的行程,加上同行併團的還有某國旅客,沿路各種爭搶推擠插隊吵鬧,讓人很疲勞

晚上的螢火蟲體驗非常棒
dec. 2018 • Familierejse
螢火蟲把河邊兩旁的樹點綴的像聖誕樹一般非常漂亮, 螢火蟲的數量比預期的多. 很多螢火蟲也會撲向船隻. 而白天也很幸運地看到長鼻猴及長尾猴.

Horrible experience...overloaded boat, poor planning...
jul. 2018 • Par
We joined this tour expecting to see Probocis monkeys and wild life but were very disappointed with the whole journey. The boat was cramped. We were overloaded with tourists beyond capacity. We hardly saw more than 2-3 monkey's and all in all, it was just not worth the journey, time and money spent.

I highly recommend heading down to Klias instead as this was a much better experience and tours are done in the late evenings unlike in Kota Belud where the tour started at 3.00pm and we were sunburnt from the sun.

Not worth it.

A Great Experience
jun. 2018 • Par
A great trip and fantastic tour guide. On the way Fizal from Fly Borneo Company shared the sites of the city as we drove to Kota Belud in a comfortable air conditioned car.
On arrival we had home made pancakes, and fried banana from their local banana plants.
The boat cruise lasted one and a half hours..we spotted kingfisher, egrets, monitor lizard, a tree with a family of macas and two separate trees of proboscis monkeys.

We were not guaranteed to see any animals, and so it was very special that we did. Our boat operators did everything to ensure we could get as close as possible to the monkeys.

The dinner was a satisfying meal of local dishes and fresh fruit.

With it now being dark we travelled to another river location where we went out along the river. There were plenty of fire flies in the bushes but with a technique using the torch a crew member had the fire flies coming to us in the boat. It was a very magical experience to end a great day.

長鼻猴及螢火蟲
jan. 2018 • Venner
來此尋找長鼻猴及螢火蟲的台、陸、韓旅客相當多。先在河畔餐廳吃下午點心,搭船到紅樹林找猴子。長尾猴相當多,但長鼻猴就要在樹稍尋找。晚間在同一水路探尋螢火蟲,因為近農曆十五,月光明亮,反而不利看到想像中如聖誕燈般的螢光,但是也是非常容易看見且飛向自己的螢火蟲。

Worst and most Dangerous Trip We Have Experienced
dec. 2017 • Par
Probably only have ourselves to blame after booking this trip with a man who took us on a boat trip to Mamutik Island. See separate post. Anyway, the bus (10 seater mini van) picked us up half an hour late, then we had to stop half way and wait for over 1/2 hour on the side of the road for another bus to catch us, because our "driver" forgot to pick up two people who were being delivered to us. Eventually arrived 3 hours after we should have been picked up. On arrival, given donuts and tea/coffee whilst many of us were harassed by aggressive monkeys physically jumping up to steal our food. Some of the Korean ladies were very scared and distressed. Onto the boat and yes we saw a couple of monkeys (lucky because it was getting dark at this stage), but it was impossible to tell from a distance whether they were Probiscus monkeys or just the annoying normal monkeys. Long way to come to see something that may or may not have been a Probiscus monkey. You would have needed a good set of binoculars to see anything. After about 15 minutes, off the boat, back in the van and up the road to a restaurant (and I use that term very loosely) lined up and had a couple of varieties of really bad cold food slapped on our plate. We were told we had 25 minutes to eat our food and be back on the bus. Back to the River by bus and back in the boats for the fireflies. Whilst they were OK, they weren't worth 7 hours of our life, or the horrific bus trip home. I sat in the front with the driver who was young and the worst (most dangerous) driver I have come across in Asia. He had absolutely no concept of safety and driving to the road conditions. I was a bit nervous on the way there on dry roads, but on the way home, it was raining steadily, sometimes heavily. In addition to not using his wipers when he should have, he continued to tailgate, speed, and attempt to overtake slower moving vehicles in very dangerous conditions. I had to tell him to slow down, that he was responsible for getting us home safely, and to stop trying to overtake cars - just get us home - there was no hurry. At one stage, he asked me if I wanted to change seats and I said yes, I want to drive. Anyway we eventually got home more through good luck than anything else. DO NOT go on a tour to Kawa Kawa River under any circumstances. It is a rip off and they don't care about your health and safety. Also, its two hours each way and 7 wasted hours of your life.
