The Garama river is a wetlands area of lowland forest and mangroves in the Padas Damit forest reserve on the Klias peninsula in Sabah, about 20km northwest of Beaufort and 90km southwest of Kota Kinabalu (KK). Tour operators in KK offer daytrips (usually half-day in the afternoon) and overnight trips to the Garama river. These offer the opportunity to see proboscis monkeys who live along the river and fireflies when it gets dark. These trips typically include the minibus transfer from/to KK, an afternoon tea, a wildlife-spotting boat trip on the Garama river and a dinner. The scenery is pleasant and consists of swamps, tropical rainforest, mangroves and nipa palms.
