Sedili is a typical fishing village located a mere 35 minutes drive from Desaru Coast. The tour begins with a boat cruise that covers 3 distinct vegetation belts that changes from rich mangrove forest , Nypa swamp, Putat and Pandanus belt before finally reaching the freshwater swamp where the endangered Water Trumpet can be found. Along the way your naturalist guide will spot interesting wildlife that call Sedili home.
The mudflats are teaming with life such as fiddler crabs, molluscs, kingfishers as well as migratory birds feeding on the beaches and if we are very lucky a family of otters playing in the river.
The livelihood of the local community are connected to both the wetlands and the sea. Fishing is a major part of their daily lives. Leaves and plant extracts from the trees are used as local resources in infrastructural, medicinal and cultural aspects of their lives.
We end our tour with a short drive up a cliff location for some light refreshments and stunning views of the South China Sea. Join your guide on an interesting tour and learn about this amazing wetland and its people.
