Depending on your preference to this; you can choose either an evening river cruise or an early morning river cruise or enjoy both of the cruises. Each river cruise set you on an adventure trail to experience first hand the remarkable wildlife and fascinating habitats along the bank of the river.

He will be trekking the Merbau Trail. The Merbau Trail is named after the more than 100-year-old Merbau Tree that you will be able to see during your trek. 

 Myne Resort Bilit - Night Safari- Merbau Tree Entrance


This tree with a hole underneath is said to be a hiding place during World War II for villagers to hide their daughters from the Japanese soldiers inside the tree. To enter, you need to crawl into the tree but once inside, you'll be in awe with the fact that the tree is so big and hollow inside!

Inside the tree trunk, you will be amazed by the size of the trunk and the hollow trunk that perched to the top. This 100 years old Merbau tree is so wide that it can practically fit 10 people at one time.

We continued our trek and the next wonder we found during this night safari trekking is a hornbill nest with a pair of hornbill in a tree trunk. According to the guides, hornbills are always romantically inclined, so inside the nest, you will usually find a male and female bird in it.
