Bako National Park is unique with its amazing variety of flora, fauna and formations - sandstone cliffs, secluded bays, rain forest, mangroves, bushland, pitcher plants, proboscis monkeys and macaques. The Park is well established, having been a protected area since 1957, so the animals have grown accustomed to visitors. Furthermore, you do not have to go deep in the forest for a wildlife encounter. Telok Assam, the area around the HQ, is one of the best places in the park for a viewing a range of species.
The kerangas, a low sandstone plateau behind Telok Assam, is a fascinating ecosystem where pitcher plants are common.
