Qué harás

We will be going on a night hike to observe nocturnal animals in the wild. The hike will be HARD, we will be covering 4.5km and an altitude change of 271m from the trail head to the top of Bukit Kembara. We will be going over Bukit Kembara, circle around Ampang Impounding Reservoir, and hiking over Bukit Kembara again to head out. Some parts of the hike is steep and can be slippery if it has been raining.

The lowland forests around Ampang Impounding Reservoir is where we will see the most animals, I will be showing you some frogs, lizards, spiders, scorpions and if we are lucky we might be able to see some snakes and nocturnal mammals like civets. If you need help in photographing the animals we see, just hand me your cell phone / camera; I am a professional macro photographer that teaches photography on weekends.

When we meet, I'll provide a short briefing to describe our route again and talk about some animals that we are expecting to see and tips for spotting animals. After the hike I will bring you to a nearby 7-Eleven where you can order a Grab car back to your accommodations. If you are having trouble with Grab, I could order one for you too.

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 night hike.
Other things to note
THIS HIKE IS HARD. Please be adequately prepared. Hiking shoes are highly recommended. Do bring a poncho or a small umbrella too as it might rain, we are visiting a rainforest afterall! Headlamps are highly recommended as it frees your hands for holding on to ropes and trees.

Hello! I am Steven Wong, nature guide and wildlife photographer. I have been going on 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 as a teenager, I've sought to document these amazing animals in their natural habitat. I enjoy guiding as it allows me to speak for these wonderful creatures, educating the public about their unique features and natural history.

We had initially booked to do the tour two and a half weeks ago but had to cancel due to one of the group being sick. Steven was more than happy to rearrange for the following weekend. The weather was dreadful on our rescheduled date and Steven advised that we again cancel and reschedule for a second time as he was keen for us to get the best out of the experience. We finally got to do the tour last night and we had an incredible experience. We spotted a group of boar before we even got on to the trail. Steven gave an excellent briefing and gave a realistic idea of what we might see. We were particularly lucky and saw a wide range of frogs, lizards, scirpions, five mouse deer, a barking deer, a pipe snake and , our personal highlight, a slow loris! Steven is an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide and his abilty to spot creatures in the dark is, to say the least, phenomenal! He was keen to share his knowledge of the forest and was more than happy to answer questions. We had an amazing experience and we couldn't have asked for anything more. If you are keen on wildlife and want the opportunity to see some amazing nocturnal creatures this is an absolute must! We are already planning our next guided tour with Steven!

I can’t say enough good things about Steven and this experience!! I told Steven I really wanted to learn more about wildlife photography and he took the time to share with me tips and insights and teach me how to properly photograph snakes (we saw 6 of them by the way!) Steven is also super knowledgeable about the habitat, fauna, and biodiversity in the area that we hiked in! We took our time to explore all the different animals, and the place itself is so absolutely beautiful and peaceful! Even though it was my first time hiking in the jungle this late at night, I never once felt unsafe! If you’re in KL and don’t do this experience you’re totally missing out! 10/10 will do again!

A one-of-a-kind experience made especially enjoyable by a very enthusiastic guide. Stephen’s passion of all things reptile really came through with his keen eye and depth of knowledge, and the hike itself was challenging but enjoyable. The walking poles and headlamps were much appreciated! We saw many, many frogs and lizards and a surprisingly big rattlesnake. This experience really made our trip to KL feel unique.

The reward for this challenging hike is a greater diversity of frog and toad species that you will typically see in a single location. On our hike, Steven introduced me to several arachnids, bird, lizards, and civets too. He is sensitive to the wildlife and a great photographer. This is clearly his passion. How do we give Steven a nature series on cable television?

It was unforgettable experience. It was a bit of raining in the begging but Steven prepared a pincho for everyone! My partner had a backache and she had to stop climbing the hill on the way, however Steven really took care of us a lot and brought us back safely to the bottom of the hill. His hospitality and responsibility is amazing. If I have a chance to come to kuala lumpur nextime, i will try and complete 3 hours of a nightwalking with Steven. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes wild life and tropical animals.

Believe the hype. Steven took us into the woods and almost immediately began spotting frogs, lizards, insects, scorpions, and other neat animals. Steven spotted a rare Malayan Horned Frog, which is so well camouflaged that the three of us in the group could not see it even when we were looking right at it. We also saw a Reticulated Python, the longest snake in the world. Steven provided us with headlamps, hiking poles, and a backpack for our water and umbrellas. At the end of the tour he drove us to a 7-11 where we could request a Grab to our hotel.
