4 day 3 night tour to one of the oldest rainforest in the world


Taman Negara National Park, occupies 4343 sq km in the center of Peninsular Malaysia and it is the country's largest national park. In its borders is one of the oldest rainforest in the world. It is here that we will explore the many trails that branch off from the resort, traversing untouched habitat, crystal clear rivers and dense forest to witness the amazing diversity of wildlife in the tropics.

Over 300 species of birds are recorded in this magnificent rainforest, from regal hornbills flying in the canopy to stunning pittas skulking in the undergrowth, we will spend our time looking for these avian delights. Not to forget, there are some amazing mammals to see and if we are lucky, we might encounter Slow Loris feeding nonchalantly in a tree or Giant Flying Squirrel gliding among trees.

Itinerary

Day 1: Pick up and drive to Taman Negara (3. 5 hours from the airport). We will check in at Mutiara Resort in Taman Negara. In the afternoon, we will explore the trails near to the resort ground as well as the many fruiting trees from the resort itself.

Day 2 & 3: In both mornings, we will take boat rides to different parts of the national park. These less frequented trails are where we will look for the shyer denizens of the rainforest. Then we will head back to the resort for lunch followed by a siesta. We will then take a walk around the resort in late afternoon until dusk. After dinner, we will either take a short walk or a night drive to look for nocturnal animals.

Day 4: Final morning walk around the resort before we check out of the resort and head back to Kuala Lumpur.
