Klias Mangrove Wildlife and Fireflies

Tour code: WB28-KLIAS

Klias River Cruise

The Klias Wetlands is a mangrove forest reserve just off the road from the town of Beaufort to Kuala Penyu.

Take a leisurely ride down the river in search of a variety of unique wildlife including the Proboscis and Macaque monkeys, and the Silver Langur and at dusk, after a sumptuos Malay buffet, take to the river once more and bear witness the surreal - thousands of fireflies performing their nightly dance to the tune of the wild outdoors.
