Within a short distance of the capital, birds such as the eastern crimson sunbird and Nightjar fly freely through the countries beautiful parks and forests.

The landscaped gardens of Tasek Lama Park, play host to our first bird watching stop. Around the forested areas nestle sunbirds, leaf birds, bee eaters and even frogmouths. Now, the adventure really begins, as we take a mangrove river safari to spot waders, bitterns, herons and egrets.
