Bako National Park is located on a small peninsula, about one hour and thirty minutes from Kuching City centre. It is the oldest gazetted national park in Sarawak and is also one of Southeast Asia’s smallest national parks. This tour will bring you a unique tropical forest landscape with high diversity. The Park is home to several distinct ecosystems; beach vegetation, cliff vegetation, mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, heath forest (Kerangas) and grasslands. Cliff faces, sandstone structures, sea stacks and pristine sandy beaches dot the area.
The star of the Park is undoubtedly the proboscis monkey, the big nosed, pot-bellied comedian of the rainforest – sometimes nicknamed “The Dutchman” by the locals. The star has a supporting cast of long-tailed macaque monkeys, silvered leaf monkeys, monitor lizards, squirrels and flying lemurs that glide from tree to tree. The participants have a chance to see bearded pigs as you walk along Bako’s jungle trails. There are more than 190 species of birds including some rare varieties.
