Overview

Malaysia is a developed Asian nation offering first class facilities, an extensive range of well serviced national parks and nature reserves, and a bounty of quality birds and mammals; simply put, this is the perfect destination for a birding tour! On this short extension we will visit one of Asia’s most famous birding sites, Fraser’s Hill, where highlights include the localized Blue Nuthatch, Black Laughingthrush, Malayan Whistling Thrush and Fire-tufted Barbet. We will also spend a day birding mangrove habitat at Kuala Selangor with specials such as Mangrove Blue Flycatcher, Mangrove Whistler, Ashy Minivet and Laced Woodpecker. This extension is a perfect addition to our Budget Borneo tour and offers the opportunity to pick up a good selection of widespread Asian species and a host of specials at a reduced price to our standard tour.

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.
