What you'll do

We will be going on a night walk to observe nocturnal animals. We will be meeting at Rozel furniture store, just outside of TTDI Light Rail Transit Station (SBK10). I will pick you up from the station at 7.45pm and drive over to the trail head which is just 5 minutes away.

At the trail head, I will provide a short briefing to go over the route and talk about the animals that we are likely to see. I will be showing you some frogs, lizards, spiders, scorpions and if we are lucky some snakes and nocturnal mammals like civets. I can help photograph the animals that we see, just hand me your camera / cell phone, I am a professional macro photographer that teaches photography on weekends.

The route that we will be taking is adjustable to include more time in the trail or on paved roads. So this hike is suitable for both children and veteran hikers.

After the hike, I can take you to a McDonald at TTDI which is just 2 minutes away where you can order a Grab car to your accommodations (Grab is a ride sharing service like Uber). I will stay with you until you get into the car. If you don't have cellular data or are having some trouble, I can call the Grab car for you.

Disclaimer: With compliance to Airbnb's Animal Welfare Guidelines, while we will be photographing the animals that we find, we will NOT be touching, petting, catching or restraining any animals during the nightwalk
Other things to note
Bukit Kiara is home to plenty of wildlife, how much we see is subject to noise, weather and luck. It might rain on us, especially on the rainy months. So do bring a poncho or a small umbrella. We will proceed if its just a drizzle or light rain, but we may postpone or cancel if its heavy rain.

Hello! I am Steven Wong a nature guide and wildlife photographer! I have been an Airbnb Experience host since its launch here in Kuala Lumpur (my other listing is KL Afterdark: Night Hikes in Ampang). I have been leading nightwalks into the forest for 9 years and professionally guiding for two years.

Growing up watching Steve Irwin on Crocodile Hunter, gave me an appreciation for herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians). Picking up photography, I've sought to document these amazing animals in their natural habitat. I enjoy guiding as it allows me to speak for these wonderful animals.

Where you'll be

We will be hiking Bukit Kiara, a public park with a wild side. This park is frequented by families out on strolls, joggers and hikers in the evening, but is mostly vacated at night. There is a mature secondary forest attached to this park where animals such as spiders, frogs, lizards, snakes and some mammals call home. Do not let its appearance fool you, I have spotted some pretty rare reptiles and mammals here!

쿠알라룸푸르 여행 리뷰 체험편 야생. 얼마나 설레는 단어인가. 그런데 말레시아의 도심에서 야생의 것들을 만날 수 있다고? 그렇게 mrt를 타고 설레는 마음으로 갔다. 다른 나라에서 온 사람들 4명과 나. 총 5명이 수강하러 찾아왔고

Steven is an excellent host and guide. The information sent before the trip was detailed and very accurate. He met us as described and took us the short distance to the park. We had our first wildlife encounter in the carpark in the shape of a venonmous snake which was such a surprise and started our tour on such a high! Stevens knowledge of the area and of the animals that live there shine through and he spots such tiny frogs and scorpions in such darkness! We will remember this trip for a long time and cannot recommend him enough. Thank you so much for such a fantastic time!

It was a wonderful experience. Although we didn't manage to see any crocodiles (just an insider joke, there aren't any crocodiles in that area 🤗😉) I had an amazing evening with Steven. He's very passionate on what he's doing, just the right guy you want to go on a night trail with. He has a huge knowledge, knows everything about the animals in this area. We've spotted frogs, snakes, lizards, insects, spiders (including a David Bowie spider) and some impressive scorpions as well. I highly recommend this experience. Thanks for this great trip, Steven.
