From Desaru, a 15 minutes drive to Sungai Lebam, this is a wide river surrounded by a very rich and lush mangrove forest. The drive passes through secondary forests and areas cleared for Agriculture and Palm Oil.

“Birds can be spotted especially the Black-Shoulder Kites, Herons and Pacific Swallows.”

The arrival at the jetty shows a view of a small fishing settlement and a floating restaurant. As the boat gently meanders along the river your guide will unravel the many interesting secrets of this unique ecosystem. You will learn how these bizarre-looking trees have adapted to live in this dynamic and constantly changing environment dictated by the ebb and flow of the ocean tides. Mangroves are also home to a myriad species of animals equally adapted to this ecology.
