3d2n – Belum Rainforest Conservation Holiday

Try out our new Conservation holiday in the Belum Temenggor Rainforest Complex, the premier rainforest destination in Peninsular Malaysia.

Belum Adventure Camp (BAC), a rustic, budget adventure accommodation suitable for travelers and families as well as school groups and adventure team building.

The camp is located on Banding Island in the Temenggor Lake. The Royal Belum State Park is the premier rainforest ecotourism and conservation destination in Peninsular Malaysia and is 3 hours from Penang and 3 hours from Kuala Besut (Perhentian islands).

The people behind the resort are adventure seekers and conservationists and they want to ensure every guest feels their adventure conservation ethos. The resort staff conduct poacher surveillance patrols in the forest reserves and collect data on animal presence for the University of Science Malaysia (USM). BAC and USM will also conduct Gibbon and Siamang surveys in the Belum Temenggor forest network as part of the National Gibbon Survey of Malaysia.

The resort has basic amenities but has its own zipline and high ropes course for hours of fun and entertainment. BAC works hard on customer service, ensuring everyone is happy. We hold movie nights in the jungle, star gazing on the lake and native games to pass the time by, we want to give our guests a unique experience they will treasure. Or they can just sit and gaze at the beautiful lake Temenggor. BAC, nature’s rustic paradise.

 

 

Itinerary

 

Day 1
Arrive at Belum and start your adventure with a 15 minute 4×4 wheel drive transfer to our secluded camp. You can choose to jungle trek (1hour) if you want to soak up the ambiance of the rainforest. On arrival you will be given traditional Malaysian style lunch and given a briefing about the resort and your programme. After lunch take your time to settle into your surroundings and absorb the delights of the rainforest. At 4pm you can kayak on the lake and watch the sunset where you can often see numerous monkey’s playing before they settle down to bed. Dinner will be a local dish of rice and curry and a vegetable dish, we do provide vegetarian options as well. After dinner you will join in the ‘Web of Life’ game and learn about the importance of all species in life and then go for a night jungle trek looking for the nocturnal animals of the forest.

Day 2
Breakfast will be served at 8am with fruits, cereals, toast and eggs available. At 9am you will take a morning boat ride to the designated conservation trek location. During the boat ride you can spot numerous birds and occasionally larger mammals like elephants and monkey’s and deers. Once you arrive your guide will brief you about what you will do and why you are doing it. Conservation treks will always involve recording presence of various species using GPS via finding pugmarks, scratch marks, calls, scats and/or hairs. Signs of species such as Asian elephants, cats, dhole, sun bear, Malayan tapir and Malayan gaur are commonly. The trails we use are not tourist routes so people using these trails will be the aboriginal people. You will then head back to the resort and take a dusk river cruise where you have the best chance of viewing wildlife as they come to the river to bathe before they retire to sleep or to wake themselves up ready for whatever the nights brings. You may also visit waterfalls, salt licks, see rafflesia flowers. In the evening you can relax and either star gaze, watch a movie in the jungle or just play traditional games.
