The River cruise is new and exciting for children, especially those from urban area. We get to see mangroves, snakes sleeping on the tree branches, lizards, spider crabs and birds such as king fisher during the 1-2 hour river cruise. Something new for a change....More

Unless you've seen this with your own eyes you wouldn't believe how amazing the firefly trip is. Hafiz is a complete firefly enthusiast and will tell you what to expect. However the way he uses his flashlight to call swarms of fireflies is just magical....More

The mangrove daytime tour was a good way to spend 11/2 hours. The tour in open boats goes up the river and the guides point out the wildlife along the way.

Managed by a great and experienced nature lover, Hafiz, the Mangrove River Boat cruise (day) and the fireflies cruise (night) along the Cherating River is nothing but delightful. Our group of young children and adults were mesmerised by the beauty of nature.
