If you’re looking to experience Sabah’s wild side without having to head all the way to Kinabatangan River, then you should schedule a day trip to Kawa Kawa River.

Kawa Kawa River is situated at Kota Belud, approximately 112KM northeast of Kota Kinabalu. Here, you will get to experience wildlife along the Tempasuk River where you might encounter animals, such as, Proboscis Monkey, long-tailed macaques, the rare silver languar, water buffaloes, river otters, and hornbills during the day. As the sun settles down, hop on the evening cruise and be mesmerized by the sight of dazzling fireflies forming like a christmas tree surrounding your boat.
