We will meet at the guard house where I'll provide a short briefing on what we are about to do, the animals that we are expecting to see and tips for spotting animals. We will then hike into Bukit Kiara where we will have the option of staying on the road where the streetlamps will stay on until 10pm or go into a trail where our chances of seeing animals are higher. 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.

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.
Headlamp and Flashlights
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!
While the secondary forest at Bukit Kiara is home to plenty of wildlife, how much we see is subject to noise, weather and luck. So keep your fingers crossed that we will see loads of wildlife!
