Batang Ai National Park makes up one of Malaysia’s largest protected areas. This popular destination is found within the Sri Aman Division of Sarawak, in Lubok Antu. The rain forest conservation area joins the Lanjak-Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary and the Bentuang-Karimun National Park of Indonesia. This is one of the very few areas in the world where the Bornean orang-utan are living in a balanced ecosystem. These massive primates and many other endangered species make up just a few of the treasures waiting in Batang Ai National Park. Allow us to guide you through the experience of a lifetime.
Batang Ai National Park is reached via boat, lying at the riverhead of both the Batang Ai and Lubang Baya River. A massive hydro lake is also contained within this magnificent area. Your adventure begins with a two hour boat trip by either public longboat or private transport. It takes you across both the flats of the gigantic lake and the rapid-moving Batang Ai River.
