Borneo Bako National Park Dead mangrove trees on beach at sunset

Sarawak’s oldest national park is just over 20km from capital city Kuching, and is a popular day trip for tourists wanting a taste of the region's wildlife. Although Bako National Park is quite compact, it is home to a multitude of flora and fauna which call the mangroves, swamp forest and beach-speckled coastline their home.

Travellers can take advantage of the park’s well-marked trails, which range from short and sweet walks to full-day hikes.
