This river is a coastal river and we ride a boat along the mangrove forest a unique group of trees that Mangrove River Cruise and Swimming Tour conducted at Kubang Badak River. This mangroves Forest is home to a unique group of plants. Adapted to live in an environment of constant and dynamic change. Dictated by the rise and fall of the tides, the Mangroves are a wonderful study on survival and adaptation. Our guide will take us on board to explore the Kubang Badak River. We may have chances to observe the White-bellied Sea Eagles, Brahminy Kites, Kingfishers, Herons, Mudskippers, Fiddler Crabs and Monitor Lizards and if we are lucky the resident otter family. We then make our way to a local family house for a delightful home cooked lunch. Next we head to a nearby jungle trail for a short 500m trek leads to a quite jungle pool for a refreshing swim before returning to the resort.
