From Kampung Bako, take a private boat on a 20-minute crossing to Bako National Park, an ecologically rich area of rainforest, waterfalls, mangroves, and beaches. Sarawak's oldest protected area, Bako is home to a wealth of species, such as macaque and proboscis monkeys, monitor lizards, flying lemurs, and countless types of birds.
After a picnic on the beach, explore the area on any of the 16 well-marked trails - from short strolls to more involved treks - that will guide you through Bako's remarkable diversity of landscape and ecology.
