Discover the thrills and spills of white water rafting on the riffles and rapids of the Kiulu River.

This Grade I and Grade II stretch of river is perfect for beginners. It has enough fast water to be fun and there are sections where you can learn the basics of maneuvering. However, there is nothing that would intimidate newcomers.

Whizz down the rapids and coast, swim or body raft in the deep pools. Watch the wildlife along the banks and enjoy the sensation of being outdoors and in touch with nature.

When all the fresh air and exercise has given you an appetite, a Local Buffet Lunch will be served beside the river!


You will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle for your White Water Rafting – Kiulu River, Kota Kinabalu tour. The drive from Kota Kinabalu to Kiulu River takes about 1 ½ hours by road and provides delightful views of the countryside along the way.

On arriving at the river bank, you will meet your rafting guide and receive a briefing on safety procedures. All participants are equipped with safety helmets and life-jackets.

Other than the thrill and excitement of riding the rapids, white water rafting is also an opportunity to see the forests and landscape from a different vantage point.

With headwaters from Mount Kinabalu, the Kiulu River provides a Grade I to II experience and is suitable for newcomers to rafting. Grade I reaches have moving water with a few riffles and small waves. There are few or no obstructions. Grade II sections give you easy rapids with waves up to 3 feet (1m) high and wide, clear channels that are obvious without scouting. Some maneuvering will be required.

Between the rapids there are deep pools where you can indulge in body-rafting or swimming.

This river excursion is between 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the season. You will also be served a Local Buffet Lunch by the riverside.

After lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu where your tour ends.
