Glide along the Kawa Kawa River and be on the look out for the illusive creatures that calls the wetland home. If you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the long-tailed macaques, water buffalo, river otters, silvered leaf monkeys and the proboscis monkey.

The sunset view from Nanamun Beach is something that you cannot miss! Simply amazing. Head back to the river for the second round and be wowed by the thousands of fireflies that lights up Kawa-Kawa riverside. Be sure not to miss all of this!
