Tunku Ab­dul Rah­man Ma­rine Park, Malaysian Bor­neo

Vacations & Travel - - Global wildlife -

The word Bor­neo con­jures all man­ner of in­trepid ad­ven­ture in the mind, while a trip to Malaysia’s Sabah state is the per­fect place to bring those vi­sions to life. The state’s rich cul­tural her­itage draws thrill seek­ers from all over the globe, while the un­tram­melled in­te­rior – fea­tur­ing some of the dens­est jun­gle on the planet – is home to mar­vel­lous avi­fauna, and some of the most cu­ri­ous mam­mals ever en­coun­tered by man, in­clud­ing the strange look­ing long-nosed pro­boscis mon­key, which has be­come a sym­bol of sorts for Malaysian con­ser­vancy, the ex­cep­tion­ally rare Malaysian sun bear, the out­ra­geously cute Hors­field’s tar­sier, and the al­ways elu­sive Sunda clouded leop­ard. Sabah is also home to Malaysia’s high­est moun­tain, the beloved trekkers play­ground of Mount Kin­a­balu, and the Tunku Ab­dul Rah­man Ma­rine Park, one of the finest div­ing and snorkelling des­ti­na­tions in the world.
