Overview of Tour

Moderately adventurous and relaxing, the 15km Kiulu river offers thrill seekers Grade 1 & 2 water rapids, where rapids are relatively calmer and easier to navigate. A captain will be on your raft at all times giving instructions like “paddle forward” and “paddle backwards” to build momentum. Glide with the rapid flow and go through the rapids in a bumpy ride depending on the class of the rapid there. A lot of arm strength will be needed, where everyone counts for the full effect. Its great fun for the adventurous family. You can also enjoy the natural surroundings during those scenic floats in between the action.

Thinking about jumping off the raft to just glide on the smooth flow of the river? Go right ahead! Body rafting is part of the fun. Your water rafting captain will give a heads up at certain points of the river that is more suitable to body raft.

About the Location

Kiulu River is located on the northwestern part of Sabah, in a small town called Kiulu in Tamparuli District. Kiulu River is classified as Class I - II River. It is safe enough for children and gentle enough for the elderly.

 

Reviews

  • Elsa Caesarea Mazurel 9/9/2022 European

    Went white water rafting in Kiulu and had an amazing day. We were picked up on time by our driver who explained to us the layout of the day and took us for the 2-hour ride to the river. Once we got there the rafting team was ready to explain all to us. They spoke very clear English and I was surprised by the details in their elaborate instructions. They explained everything to us, from where to sit and position our feet so we wouldn't fall off to what to do if you did and how to get someone back on board once this had happened. After this everyone strapped into their life jacket and helmet and the guides helped push the boat into the water once everyone was in the right position. Each boat had two guides in the back who would help paddle and steer the boat in the right direction if we drifted a bit too much to the side. During the ride there was a stop where everyone could take a swim, it was very funny when we tried to go against the current and would just swim in one place. As we continued there were two other opportunities where those who wanted could swim/drift along the boat as this drifted along a more quiet piece of river. When it was time to get back into the boat the guides would help us as we continued. We saw birds fly over head and lizards taking a dive at one point, we passed by local huts on the short and just watched all the nature in awe pass by, After the journey, the guides took care of all the material so we could just grab lunch at the buffet of this local establishment located in a lush green field near the river. Our driver had driven up there and was ready to take us back home afterwards. Great experience and would definitely book again!

  • You can skip your morning coffee on this one, starting your day off with White Water Rafting will get your adrenaline pumping, far more than a few cups of coffee, that’s for sure!
  • You will be greeted at your Kota Kinabalu City Hotel Lobby by our charming guides, and then whisked away through a scenic 1 ½ hour drive through spectacular country-side vistas laced with villages and lush paddy fields.
  • Upon arrival, you will be briefed through on safety measures and the various rapids by the River Guide. Proceed to collect your rafting gear. Helmets, check! Paddles, check! Life-jackets, double check!
  • Time to brave up to 15 kilometers slippery slopes of the Kiulu River! The rafting activity takes about 1hr 30mins depending on rapids and river condition. Paddle on through bumpy river-beds and be literally drenched in adrenaline and excitement as you reach the ending point. Don’t miss amazing sights of the tropical rainforest while you’re cruising through The Wall Rapid and Holy Smoke Rapid. You can even Body Raft if you’re keen on something more vigorous!
