Langkawi: Kilim Ecopark mangrove tour

Another experience we do every time we go to Langkawi is a boat tour through the mangroves of the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park.

A stop for some eagle feeding. The Brahminy Kites are happy to swoop on the chicken on offer.

As the tide was low, we were able to go right through the Crocodile Cave (named for its shape, rather than inhabitants – there are no crocodiles in these waters.)

This area is a safe mooring for yachts. It was interesting to see which ports they were registered to – everything from American and European locations to some Australian ones.
