Our most recommended Kuala Selangor Safaris & Wildlife Activities

From Kuala Lumpur: Kuala Selangor Fireflies & Wildlife Tour

1. From Kuala Lumpur: Kuala Selangor Fireflies & Wildlife Tour

This tour will take you to Kuala Selangor in the quiet hamlet of Kampung Kuantan, where one of the largest firefly colonies in the world exists. When you arrive, you'll visit Kota Melawati, formerly known as Fort Altingsburg, with its old execution block, royal mausoleum and colonial buildings. You'll experience the highlight of the tour at Kampung Kuantan. As a small, non-motorized boat (tong kang) carries you upstream in the peaceful night, you'll notice an array of blinking trees. At first, this sparkly display looks like an endless row of Christmas trees, but the synchronized, rhythmic flashing is actually produced by thousands of fireflies. Your skilled local oarsmen will make this experience a memorable and unforgettable one.

Batu Caves & Firefly Watching in Kuala Selangor

2. Batu Caves & Firefly Watching in Kuala Selangor

Enjoy an afternoon and evening tour to the dramatic 400-million-year-old Batu Caves and see hundreds of thousands of twinkling fireflies on a boat tour of the Selangor River. Continue to Batu Caves to roam in the prehistoric caves, after a climb of 272 steps. See some of the Hindu temples that have been established here since the early 1900s, such as the temples to Lord Murugan, Siva, and Ganesh. Next, you will go to Kuala Selangor, one of the most historic and conflicted areas during the early stages of the Malay Sultanate Selangor. It is also famous for its Seafood Restaurant, where you will enjoy dinner. But before dinner, stop at Bukit Malawati at the highest point in Kuala Selangor, and admire the fort that monitored ships along the Strait of Malacca and Selangor River. The area is home to some cheeky Silver Leaf Monkeys, which are more friendly and tame compared to the monkeys at Batu Caves. Dinner will be served at a local restaurant to allow where you can try local food. Choose from a aariety of favorite Malaysian food such as Bariani Rice, Roti Canai, Kaya Toast Bread, and Fried Noodle. Finally, drive to Kampung Belimbing Fireflies Park. Quietly float out to see the incredible twinkles of the largest fireflies colony in the world. Marvel at the ability of these amazing lightning bugs to synchronize their light patterns, before your return to Kuala Lumpur at approximately 21:30.

We absolutely, 100%, enjoyed our tour with Anuar. The Batu Caves were amazing but feeding the monkeys and the fireflies will be a family favorite for a long time. Anuar was a great guide who made sure we learned about Malaysia along the way. He also happily answered our questions.

Seeing the fireflies was absolutely spectacular. The tour was well organized and the dinner was delicious with a great view on the Selagor river. Way better than expected

The driver/guide was very nice. During our trip he told us alot about malaysian history, culture and the places that we went to.

Bellissima escursione, rilassante in mezzo alla natura. La cena buona e abbondante

The guide was really fantastic .. the places visited are a must visit ...
