Parks & Wildlife

Sarawak has one of the most extensive networks of protected areas in Southeast Asia, with 46 national parks, 5 wildlife sanctuaries and 15 nature reserves. Our parks offer nature lovers an opportunity to explore the Borneo rainforest, see rare wildlife and enjoy spectacular attractions.

Some of our national parks are world-famous, such as Bako with its remarkably diverse ecosystems, and Niah with its 65,000 years history of human habitation. Gunung Mulu, home to one of the world’s largest cave systems, enjoys UNESCO World Heritage Site Status.

Our national parks and nature reserves showcase the State’s natural heritage and act as key attractions for Sarawak’s expanding tourism industry. Wildlife sanctuaries, however, are not open to visitors and exist to preserve and conserve vulnerable ecosystems or endangered wildlife. Each has its own crucial role to play in protecting the natural environment and our remarkable biodiversity.
