Klias Wetland Safari – In Search Of The Proboscis Monkey
Klias Wetland Safari is an afternoon tour that takes you on a river cruise on a search for the Proboscis Monkey and ends with a night cruise that reveals one of the wonders of mangrove forest – the stunning display of fireflies that lights up the night.
There are 2 unique experiences you will have on this safari, a sunset cruise and a night cruise.
As you cruise along the scenic river, you will see wildlife start feeding as dusk approaches. This is a river cruise through mangroves that are home to several species of wild animals such as crocodile, long-tailed Macaques, Silver Langurs and the most famous Proboscis monkeys.
Klias Wetlands is great for wildlife and bird watching but the real attraction happens after sunset when thousands of fireflies light up the trees along the riverbank.
