Day 1 - White Water Rafting - Kiulu (Grade 1-2)

  • 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 the slippery slopes of the Kiulu River! The rafting activity takes up to 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!
