Firefly Sanctuary

Firefly’s sanctuary in Sungai Yak Yah, Kampung Ibok, provides another attraction in Kemaman.  Take a river cruise down the Yak Yah River to watch one of the wonders of nature, the flickering lights of the fireflies on tree branches are certainly a magical sight to behold. The rhythmic flashes produced vary by sex and species and scientist believe that flashes are part of a communication system to attract mates or as a warning sign to predators. The memory of these ‘Christmas trees’ lining the mangrove banks of the river can often be cherished only in one’s mind, as it is quite difficult to capture the scene in a photograph. It is nature’s magical illumination of fireflies that creates the symphony of lights that are truly a sight to behold.

How To Get Here

Arrange with local tour operator to take you to Sungai Yakyah in Kampung Ibok, about 15km from Kijal. There are battery operated boats available at the main jetty which provides an undisturbed trip to watch one of the nature’s wonders.
