Head to Kubang Badak Jetty and hop on Explorer Boat for a ride along the coastal river to explore the mangrove forest.  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.

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 hotel.
