Locat about 100KM north of Kota Kinabalu, Kawa is a mangrove district that is still newly developed and preserved for proboscis monkey and firefly watching. Without going too far to places like Kinabatangan in Sadakan, this short trip of not more than 2 hours could bring you a lot surprises. Different kind of birds could also be spotted along the river cruise. While Tanjung Aru gives you beautiful sunset over the horizon, we'd say the sunset view is even more majestic here than ever. The 23KM-wide beach is so magnificent that no other places in Borneo Island can provide of.

Here at Kawa, we will be going different villages with different name for proboscis monkey searching, including Minangah River, Rampayan River as well as Nanamun River. The proboscis monkeys found here are genuinely authentic as in the monkeys only consume food supply from natural resources. Hence, proboscis monkey could be hard to spot here often times. But 'fraid not, Kawa's biggest gem is about to reveal at night! Hundreds of trees of fireflies shining bright awaiting you right there! According to our experience, Kawa is also one of the greatest place to watch the most firefly in Sabah. The tour is greatly suitable from kids to elder, we warmly welcome all of you to hop on to one of the must-go destination in Kota Kinabalu.
