What To Expect

The exhilaration of splashing over river water while you and your fellow rafters try to keep your boat in check is something that will meet your sense of adventure and craving for adrenaline, if that's what you’re looking for in Borneo. The Kiulu River is an ideal playground where beginner rafting enthusiasts or those who just want to get wet and wild can gain that much-needed satisfaction. A short drive from Kota Kinabalu, the rapids themselves and your professional guidance make this a fun-filled and safe activity.

A shared transfer from your downtown Kota Kinabalu hotel will be ready to bring you to the starting point along the Kiulu River. The drive takes you further north where Mount Kinabalu’s towering presence replaces the horizon in the east. The region is known for its valleys that spring to life and maintain their lush green cover for many months. As the land is quite fertile here, small settlements such as Inanam and Menggatal have raised from the ground up to become leading centers in Sawarak for production and industry. The sleepy town of Kiulu appears, and you head straight to the starting point of the river bearing the same name. The Kiulu River may not be comparable with larger Asian rivers, but its strength and importance for the whole Tamparuli District is something not to be underestimated.
A briefing by your river guide for the day includes handing out the needed protective gear and going through the rafting motions before your head toward the boats. From the moment you take off, the scenery of the surrounding jungle is one that keeps your attention for its mesmerizing beauty, Dusun plantations, and passing orchards. Gentle streams followed by slightly more wild rapids are the wet path you will take for the next 6 miles (10 km). You can expect to disembark after roughly 1.5 hours of whitewater fun, where a riverside lunch will be served. Then freshen up and perhaps change into something dry before hopping back onto the minivan for the comfortable ride back to Kota Kinabalu and your hotel.
