At 08:00, depart Kuching for a 45-minute drive to Bako Fishing Village. Continue by motorised boat for a 30-minute cruise along the beautiful coast to reach Bako National Park.
The oldest of Sarawak’s national parks, Bako offers the perfect introduction to Sarawak’s forests and wildlife. Bako is also home to 275 rare proboscis monkey, found only in Borneo. Observe the fabulous proboscis monkeys, silvered langurs, bearded pigs and monitor lizards. Despite its seemingly small size, Bako contains a wide range of vegetation – swamp forest, scrub-like padang vegetation, mangrove forest, dipterocarp forest, delicate cliff vegetation and beautiful sandy beaches.
Explore the rainforest on a variety of walking trails from mighty 80-metre dipterocarps to dense mangrove forest. For bird enthusiasts, Bako is the home to many species such as the rufous-backed kingfisher, stork-billed kingfisher, red-crowned barbet, white-bellied woodpecker and many more. During low tide, observe the mudskippers and blue-fiddler crabs coming out from their hideout for feeding on the beaches.
Have a simple lunch at the park café before returning to Bako Village by boat and onward transfer to Kuching.
