PENINSULAR MALAYSIA TOURS
One of Malaysia’s best kept secrets is the biosphere of the Malay Peninsula. This geographical zone is one the most bio-diverse regions on earth. It is a treasure house of some of the most exotic plant life, birdlife, animal life, and coral and fish life on the planet. Its rainforest is inhabited with tigers, leopards, elephants, sambar deer, sun bears, tapir, rhino and many others. It resounds with the whooping call of the gibbons and the unfamiliar cries of the hornbills, pheasants, barbets and babblers. Within this biosphere lie the states of Selangor, Penang, Perak and Kedah and Terengganu. Collectively it offers vast expanse of untouched rainforest, golden beaches, secluded coral islands and amazing flora and fauna.
This Tour offers a broad spectrum of Malaysian birds, well known among the worldwide birding community and our guides second to none. At all times we will ensure our clients the best Malaysia can offer in birds, accommodation and food.
Our birding adventure will take us through several habitats that will include tidal mangrove forest, lowland rainforest and montane forest, plantations and disturb forest. Along the journey we will also search for the birds that frequent the rice paddies.
We average over 2000 species of birds for this route. We include a diverse range of habitats within a short distance from each other. We end at an easier pace on the famous beach resort island of Langkawi to chill at the end of the tour.
BORNEO & WALLACEA TOURS
Borneo is the third largest island in the world and has about 620 recorded bird species of which 41 are endemic. Malaysian Borneo is made up two states, which are Sabah and Sarawak. For most birders, the Malaysian state of Sabah is the gateway for the quest of the Borneo birds. Kota Kinabalu is the state capital, and most journeys begin from here. Sabah has montane forest, lowland rainforest, mangrove forest, river and estuarine environments thus satisfying any birder with a diverse range of birds. Lesser known as a birding destination but most undeserving so is Sarawak, with a recorded 533 species of birds, of which 31 are endemic to the island of Borneo. In addition Borneo offers other endemic wildlife like Orangutans, Proboscis monkeys and the Borneo Pygmy elephants.
