    Kubah National Park + Matang Wildlife Centre

    Transfer from your hotel to Kubah National Park which takes about 45 minutes. The park is located about 20 kilometres from Kuching and one of Sarawak's most accessible national parks. It was gazetted in 1989 and only opened to the public in 1995. The Park is dominated by a sandstone plateau which includes three mountains Mount Serapi, Mount Selang and Mount Sendok. At the height of between 150-450 metres, this plateau is punctuated with bands of hardened limestone which have created a number of beautiful waterfalls.Nepenthes ampullaria - the carnivorous pitcher plants borne at the tips of the leaves on tendrils, are shaped like tubes, tubs, or drums, and capture various small invertebrates.The Park consists largely of undisturbed natural forest with five main vegetation types:- alluvial forest, lowland mixed dipterocarp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, submontane forest and secondary forest. Its rich forest, proximity to the mangrove forests and its terrain all ensure that Kubah is home to a variety of wildlife, including bearded pigs, black hornbills, mousedeer, squirrels and numerous species of amphibians and reptiles. It is also rich in palms and orchids. These include several species of Licuala, Rattans, Pantu, Pinanga, Appendicula, Dipodium and Eria. The Matang Wildlife Centre is situated 35km from Kuching Located in Kubah National Park, this large enclosed area of rainforest is home to endangered wildlife. These enclosures will be located in the rainforest so that the living environment is rather similar to that found in the wild. An information centre and education programmes will provide visitors with further details on the Wildlife in Sarawak and the conservation efforts. The Matang Wildlife Centre is about 35km from Kuching. There is a training programme here that teaches Orang Utans, who have been orphaned or rescued from captivity, how to survive in the wild. Visitors will be able to see lots of Orang Utans here, especially during feeding time. Besides these adorable primates, there are also Sun Bears, Sambar Deer, Civet Cats as well as three large aviaries that house Sea Eagles, Hornbills and other birds in Sarawak. Jungle trekking is also possible as there are four jungle trails here, the Pitcher Trail (takes about 2 hours), the Sungai Rayu Trail (about 3 - 4 hours), the Sungai Senduk trail (about 1 hour) and Sungai Buluh trail (about 2 hours). Picnic spots, an information centre, accommodation facilities, a car park and a small canteen are available at the park HQ. Transfer back to your hotel after the tour.
