HOME | TOURS & ACTIVITIES | BINTAN MANGROVE / FIREFLIES TOUR
The one hour tour takes you on a nature encounter with Bintan’s rich mangrove forests. Journey through Sebung River and enjoy the flora and fauna of Mother Nature. Our experienced and knowledgable guides will educate guests on how the mangroves are created and the importance of mangrove trees in the eco-system for the maintenance and sustainability of clean water.
The mangroves play host to a variety of exotic wildlife. Some of the shy wildlife includes the macaque and silver leaf monkeys, monitor lizards and mangrove snakes. If you are lucky enough, you will be able to see snakes sleeping in the branches right above you and even monkeys swinging through the trees. Marine life fills the riverbed including, mudskippers, crabs, mud lobsters, snails and clams amongst many others. Towards the end of the river, the guide will also share the different uses of the plants found in the mangrove such as weaving of hats or building of roofs.
Admire locals as they go about their daily lives in the mangrove. Catch a glimpse of Orang Lauts (sea gypsies), their homes built on stilts (kelongs) and a traditional charcoal kiln that is dysfunctional now. Static fishing traps can also be seen along the river which fishermen use for their catch for the day.
