Majestic experience. Five stars

The experience was wonderful. The ethereal atmosphere was very majestic. The transport arranged was very efficient and smooth — we managed to arrive slightly early. The boat captain was friendly and introduced us to new facts. Besides the countess fireflies which we had caught and released upon close contact, we also saw a few monitor lizards. Overall, this place is excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
Magical experience

We visited Kota Tinggi Firefly Park on a Saturday evening. The boat rides depart at 7.30pm, 8.30pm and 9.30pm. The 7.30pm tour is supposed to be the best one for viewing the fireflies. (The fireflies get less active later into the night apparently). Tickets are RM20 for adults and RM12 for children.

We had previously been to the Desaru Firefly tour, and we thought that this was way better. For a start, the operator did not scoop water to splash onto the bushes where the fireflies were to drive them out, which I thought was pretty destructive. The fireflies were also easy to see from the boat, and they really did light up the trees like Christmas lights! It was very beautiful and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the 45-min ride in the boat.

Just take note that there would be some mosquitoes (you’re in the jungle/wild!), so you might want to wear long pants. (Insect repellent discouraged as the scent may also put off the fireflies). There’s a gift shop and the reception is just 100m from the main road, so it’s easy to get to if you drive!
Fun - Well worth it

A little hidden gem of an activity that we all really enjoyed. Plenty of fireflies to experience in the trees around the lake/river which we all enjoyed with the added bonus of monkeys and lizards sleeping in the trees too. A bit of a hike from our hotel in Johor but we felt it was worth it after the fun and memorable time we had. Good value too and well organized with decent life jackets and friendly skipper and staff.
So amazing!!! Make the visit!!!

The lighting conditions were excellent so I was able to see A LOT of fireflies. It's like seeing magical Christmas lights through the trees. The staff here are so amazing and kind and helpful. I'm a solo traveller so it can be hard to take pictures of myself but they offered and were just so welcoming and accommodating from the second I got there! Even pointing out fireflies from the boat when they were harder to see. Highly recommend. :D

I also recommend getting a wishing lantern (8RM) which you can release and a love lock (10RM) which you can lock onto the fence by the river.
Relaxing boat ride into a magical forest of glistering fireflies

A magical and beautiful place! A belated review, we visited Kota Tinggi Firefly park early in Jan this year and it has left such a deep impression. Making a booking online through Whatapps was easy and the host were friendly and helpful in assisting us with it.

The place was easy to locate via GPS, better if you can drive there or chartered a ride, it's about 45 mins drive from central JB. We were warmly welcomed as we reached, it's a cosy and simple park, boat ride was about 45 minutes if I remembered it right, a pleasant and tranquil trip into the mangroves where many beautiful cluster of firefly lived. It's as if time has stopped and you are transported into a mystical forest of glistering lights!

It's a very beautiful and magical sight, only cons were the sometimes overly-excited crowd (Inevitable I guess!) and the fuel smell from the boat, but apart from this, a beautiful park to visit if you're in Johor.

I thank the good people for doing such a good job maintaining this beautiful landscape, home to so many fireflies! (A vanishing sight in our overly polluted cityscape)
