What you should know

The closest main transport hub to Kiulu River is Kota Kinabalu town (reached by flight to Kota Kinabalu Airport or overland within Borneo). Kiulu river is another 2 hours' drive from the main city center of Kota Kinabalu town. The providers will provide transport to the river from your hotel Kota Kinabalu town.

Even with the intro level rapids, you want to make sure you are with someone who knows the river and can be on hand to help out the team in case of unexpected events.

Kiulu River white water rafting makes for a fairly easy physical activity and it does not require knowing how to swim, but you should be comfortable in the water with a life vest.

Pretty much good to go all year round, but the waters could get a little rougher from November to March during monsoon season.

8:30 am to 3:30pm on the same day (including transport time)

You may notice that some of the options include an IRF button. This means that the provider has been certified by the International Rafting Federation, which maintains and promotes development of rafting at all competition, commercial and recreational levels. IRF certification means that an instructor has high quality, internationally recognised qualifications to guide people safely down rapid water rivers. This training requires instructors to maintain CPR and first aid certification.

Stop by the Gamut Cafe restaurant near Kondis Point if you have a chance for some simple yet delicious country style cooking and experience the local hospitality.

You may also be wondering what rapid Grades (I-V) mean in practice. We hope that this is a helpful summary:

Grade I (Easy): Flat water with generally unobstructed passage.
Grade II (Novice): Small to medium sized waves and a few obstacles.
Grade III (Intermediate): Fairly high waves, and the passage may be difficult to recognize from on the river.
Grade IV (Advanced): High, powerful, irregular waves, with the passage often difficult to recognize and negotiate.
Grade V (Expert): Very difficult rapids, High-powerful-irregular waves, difficult to negotiate, the extreme for commercial operations.
