Kuching Natures and Parks

Bako National Park

Bako is Sarawak’s oldest national park. Huge variety of wildlife can be found here. It is the perfect spot for Kuching wildlife sightings – long-tailed macaques, hairy-nosed otters, silver leaf monkeys and flying lemurs. Clearly marked jungle trails make it easy for visitors to discover the wilderness. This is a popular day trip destination for visitors staying in Kuching.

Mulu National Park

This largest national park in Sarawak is home to the world’s most extensive cave system. Gazetted as a World Heritage Site, visitors can opt for numerous adventurous activities such as caving, rock climbing and kayaking. A highlight here is the sight of millions of bats flying out at dusk from the dim caverns with millions of swiflets returning from the day’s foraging.

Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

This center is a perfect place to mingle with the orang utans and hornbills of Sarawak. It is part of the Semenggoh nature reserve which consists of the Semenggoh Bio Centre, a Botanical Garden, Forest Nursery, Fern and Orchid Garden and Herb Ethno botany Centre. Try and plan a visit during the Orang Utan feeding time at 9am and 3pm. Open daily from 8.00am – 5.00pm.

River Safaris

Rivers are a way of life in Sarawak and in many areas are the only means of travel. The most popular river cruises are along the Skrang Lemanak, Batang Ai and Rejang Rivers. The rainforest encroaching on the river’s edge and many tribal longhouses along the way make journeys down these rivers a unique experience.
