The highlight of the tour is seeing the remarkable Proboscis Monkey in the wild!

Being able to watch these wonderfully strange looking primates in their natural habitat within the mangroves is a truly wonderful experience.

Additionally, there is also the possibility of seeing many other species of wildlife.

Tropical birds, macaques, silver langur, crocodiles and water buffalo all inhabit the region.

Included on this great value trip is a delicious Malaysian-style buffet dinner at the Klias Lodge.

As the sun sets over the river it will soon be time for the firefly part of the cruise
