What you can expect
Come face-to-face with Sabah's incredible wildlife on a river cruise in the lush Weston Wetland Park. Float past proboscis monkeys and fishing villages in the afternoon light, and after sunset fades into darkness, indulge in a dinner buffet and watch the landscape twinkle with glowing fireflies.
Set out from your hotel in the afternoon for the drive to the riverfront lodge in the town of Weston. Kick off your adventure with high tea, and then board a boat for a river safari that leads you through Sabah's beautiful wetlands. Catch sight of long-nosed proboscis monkeys going about their daily business, glide past quaint fishing villages, and spot the elegant white egrets and other wildlife that make their home on the river.
As the sinking sun turns the sky pink and orange, your captain gives you the opportunity to capture a stunning sunset photo from the middle of the river. Then, with twilight settling in, make your way back to the lodge, where a tasty buffet spread awaits you. After eating your fill, climb back on the boat for another ride down the river, this time surrounded by thousands of luminous fireflies. Marvel at the magical landscape lit up by constellations of insects before heading back to Kota Kinabalu in the late evening.
