Peninsular Malaysia Birding Tour 2023 – 8 Days
9 August 2023 - 17 August 2023
Safe, comfortable and reliable. This is the perfect tour for those who have always wanted to bird South-east Asia but have had some reservations – until now, that is! Join our Australian and local guide on this tour and be amazed at how sophisticated and modern this country has become in recent decades. Travelling and birding here are a breeze and Malaysia has many fascinating and beautiful birds awaiting us.
We’ll stay at comfortable, quality accommodation with a range of food to suit all taste-buds; the road network is excellent, while the locals are friendly and helpful. And the birds…there’s an amazing variety to be observed, ranging from the stately Crested Fireback and magnificent Rhinoceros Hornbill to forest floor gems like Banded Pitta and Striped Wren-Babbler.
Other specialities include Black Eagle, Black-thighed Falconet, Large Green Pigeon, Black-bellied Malkoha, Blue-rumped Parrot, Buffy Fish Owl, Rufous-backed Kingfisher, Banded Woodpecker, Crested Jay, Green Magpie, Large Wren-Babbler, Long-billed Spiderhunter, Crimson-breasted Flowerpecker, Malayan Peacock-Pheasant, the strange Rail-Babbler and the cute Black-and-Red Broadbill. We have exceeded 210 species on the last 3 tours! There are many mammals (including Taipir), flowers and beautiful butterflies to be observed. This tour explores one of the richest areas for birds in Southeast Asia, featuring Kuala Selangor, Fraser’s Hill and famous Taman Negara National Park.
