Langkawi Crocodile Cave – Gua Buaya
The Crocodile Cave (Gua Buaya) is a unique cave through which the Kilim River flows. It is only accessible during the low tide in a small boat. Though named after its early inhabitants, the cave is home to crocodiles anymore.
It is now the home of brilliant limestone formations and bat colonies.
During your tour, eagle feeding may be part of the itinerary. This takes place in a small cove set aside for eagle feeding.
The feeding starts when the boat begins circling the cove while revving its engine. This sounds the dinner bell for the eagles, who has learned to associate boat engines with fishermen. Fishermen often discard small fishes caught in their nets, which made for easy pickings for the eagles.
Once the eagles start circling, our guide will toss chicken entrails in to the water. Then move the boat off to the side. The circling eagles will begin swooping down across the water to grab up the food until all the entrails are gone.
