Lit with the ambience similar to being under the moonlight, this unique night safari is the first of its kind in Malaysia. Flashes are not allowed as it will disturb the animals.

After the interesting exploration, you will be transferred back to your hotel to rest for the day.
Day 2 - Bukit Merah Waterpark
Dig into the scrumptious breakfast at the hotel to begin your day before a quick check out. We will begin the day’s adventure by heading towards Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort. Get ready for some splashing and fun as you will be spending the day here at Bukit Merah Waterpark.
One of the biggest waterparks in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia, the Bukit Merah Waterpark is spread across 11 acres of land. Cool off and have some fun at the many attractions in the park including Perak Mining Company, Giant Tube Rides, Water Speed Slides, Sandy Beachfront Wave Pool, Body Slides and much more. A thrilling ride that should not be missed is the Boomerang, being the first and only one of its kind in Southeast Asia.
Waterpark facilities include male and female shower rooms, prayer rooms as well as huts to take shelter and relax. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant to appease your hunger before you check in at the Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort to freshen up. Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort is surrounded by lush rainforests and is one of Malaysia’s exclusive eco-tourism destinations.
In the evening, dinner will be served at a local restaurant and once you have satisfied your rumbling tummies, we will head back to the hotel for the day.
Day 3 - Orangutan Island
Begin the day with a hearty breakfast at the hotel followed by a quick check out before departing for Orangutan Island. Stroll along the pathways of the caged tunnel to get a closer look at the spectacular red apes that are free to roam about this part of the island, swinging from tree to tree. You can even catch sights of the sleeping nests that the orangutans have built.
Heading towards the nursery, get ready to swoon at the cuteness of the baby orangutans. When medical assistance is needed, the staff will have to take the baby away from the mother for treatment. They even have a monkey preschool where the babies will usually spend the first four years of their life under care before being released onto the island after they have had their treatment.
Discover further about these endangered primates and the circumstances they have to face. You will be educated on the efforts made to try and preserve these magnificent creatures and their natural habitat. This attraction is actually a part of a conservation and rehabilitation program for the orangutans. The fundamental aim of this program is that the orangutans will eventually become self-reliant and will be able to roam the entire island freely. Our adventure ends here and your transport will be ready to take you back.
