Search for wild orangutans, visit the semi-wild orangutans at Semenggoh, see rare Irrawaddy dolphins and turtles on a boat trip, and discover the world’s largest flower – the endemic rafflesia – in the forest at Gunung Gading.

An overnight stay at Bako National Park, famed for proboscis monkeys, lets you appreciate its birdlife at dawn and dusk, but the highlight is a three-day jungle trek in search of wild orangutan, and a visit to a traditional Iban longhouse.
