Birding Tour Malaysia: Peninsular Malaysia 2018



Our tour to Peninsular Malaysia will cover the two most important birding venues of Peninsular Malaysia, Fraser’s Hill and Taman Negara National Park. A total of 689 species of birds have been recorded on Peninsular Malaysia alone, with three endemics (Malayan Whistling Thrush, Mountain Peacock-Pheasant, and Malaysian Partridge) and 145 species listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Of these, 300 can be found in Fraser’s Hill and 386 in Taman Negara.

The high biodiversity, multi-ethnicity of the friendly population, good infrastructure, and wonderful food of this region of the world should guarantee a tour to Peninsular Malaysia to become a highlight of any birder’s world travels.

We also offer a four-day post-tour extension to this tour, looking for a slate of fabulous hornbills on Banding Island.

This tour can be combined with our preceding Birding Borneo – Spectacular Birds and Other Wildlife 2018 tour for a complete Malaysia mega tour.

What our clients say

We spent three weeks with Andy in Thailand and enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Andy worked so hard to find the birds, and get us on them.  He was very patient and took the time we needed. He knew all the best places to go, knew what birds would be expected, identified them in an instant  and still managed to find some pretty good rarities along with the “known birds”, Himalayan Cutia anyone? And we spent literally hours getting great looks at Spoon-billed Sandpiper.  Andy got us very close without disturbing the birds or any other birders.  It was a highlight of the trip.  We are hoping to see Andy in York later this year for a days birding on his home patch!
