For the more energetic among us, we head to Kubang Badak River for some Kayaking adventure. On your arrival at the Jetty, we will start off with a quick briefing and some helpful kayaking tips for beginners. Strap on your safety life jackets before we begin to board the kayak, one person at the time. Once everyone on the kayak, we are ready to begin our kayaking adventure. We kayak at slow pace to enjoy this serene river and pedal towards the open sea.
Along the way guide will share interesting facts and explanations of the importance and intricate ecosystem of the mangrove forest. The intertwining roots of these unique plants are breeding ground for many organisms that have adapted ingenious ways to thrive in a habitat dictated by the ebb and flow of the ocean tides.
We may get to see sea eagles and kites, kingfishers, herons, mudskippers, fiddler crabs and monitor lizards, then pass the local fishing station where the local fishermen gather to go to sea or return after a day out. After about 90 minutes of pedaling, we arrived back at the jetty and end our kayaking adventure.
We than travel to nearby local house for some home made prepared lunch and refreshments. Then we drive a short distance by van, to a nearby jungle trail that leads us to a jungle pool. Its clear, cool and refreshing waters are a refreshing respite from the heat of the midday sun.
