"Bako National Park" Bako by DanielF

Bako Travel Guide: 85 reviews and 218 photos

Beaches, Mangroves and Rainforest

Not very far away from Kuching and only accessible by boat, the small Bako National Park offers a lot of different habitats and is home to many endangered species. We stayed there for a couple of days in one of the spartan beach bungalows that the National Park authority manages and spent our time taking hikes in the rainforest, the mangroves and in the high plateau that overlooks the coast.

Our skilled naturalist guide put all his knowledge at our disposal to get the most out of the jungle experience.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:stunning variety in a small area.
  • In a nutshell:A good place to see the wildlife of Borneo.
