This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and you can spend as much or as little time at any of the places that you visit. Unlike the tight schedules of coach tours, the private option allows you to do the tour at your own pace.)
You will be picked up from your hotel in Kuching and taken in a coach/ private vehicle to the Bako National Park in Sarawak, a journey in which you will travel partly by land and partly by water.
Drive for about 30 minutes passing by beautiful nipah palms and mangrove swamps before arriving at the Kampong Bako fishing village. Here you will board a motorized boat that will take you to the Bako National Park in about 25 minutes.
After arriving at the Park, visit the Information and Exhibition Centre for an orientation. Then set out with a pair of binoculars (as you may see wild boars, Plantain Squirrel and many species of birds) on trail number 5. See the many adaptations of the dipterocarpus lowland forest with the various timber species before coming to flat vegetation land. The Park is renowned for its botanical richness and diversity. Numerous species of birds and animals like the long-nosed Proboscis monkeys, long-tail macaques, wild boars, Sambar deers and monitor lizards live in this coastal rainforest environment.
Enjoy a packed lunch at Telok Pandan Beach.
See the marvellous and fascinating weathering process such as hemispherical cavities, iron stained rocks and the sea stack, one of the most photographed features of the Park.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Kuching.
