This River Cruise is suitable for families with Young Children. From Desaru Coast, we drive to Sungai Lebam River and hop on to the explorer boat. 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. These bizarre-looking trees have adapted to live in this dynamic and constantly changing environment dictated by the ebb and flow of ocean tides.

After the mangrove boat tour, we will make a stop at the famous Desaru Fruit Farm Shop for a chance to purchase local freshly harvested fruits before returning to the hotel.
