Penang Nature Tours

One of the few natural forests on the island, the Penang National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang) is located at the North-Western side of the island, in Muka Head. Covering 1181 hectares of dipterocarp forest and 1381 hectares of wetlands, the park is an abundance of lush, natural beauty with a diverse ecosystem. The first protected area legally gazetted under the National Park Act of 1980, the park has over 500 flora and fauna species, as well as a meromictic lake (a lake with layers of water that do not inter-mix) at Pantai Keracut, mangrove swamps, mudflat areas, coral reefs and nesting areas for some endangered turtle species such as the Leatherback and the Hawksbill turtles. If you’re lucky, you can spot rare mammals such as slow loris, flying lemur, civet cats, leopard cats, sea otters and pangolins, especially around Pantai Keracut, as well as soaring exotic birds such as Crested Serpent eagles and Brahminy Kites.3 days
