1800 hours – pick up from your hotel and travel 22 km by road (45 mins) to Kubah National Park, a 2,230 hectare protected area of mixed dipterocarp forest that is rich in palms, orchids and pitcher plants. Situated on a small sandstone plateau Kubah is dominated by the 911 metre high Mount Serapi. The park’s soft sandstone is punctuated with bands of hardened limestone which have created a number of clear streams, waterfalls and bathing pools.
This habitat supports a rich variety of frogs. Over 60 species of frogs are found at Kubah, including one of the smallest species of frog in the world – the Matang narrow mouth frog. This pea-size frog lives inside and around pitcher plants. A natural frog pond located close to the park HQ is one of the best places to see frogs in Sarawak. Species found at Kubah include the File-eared frog, Bornean horned frog, Wallace’s flying frog, Mahogany frog, Dark-eared tree frog, Lowland litter frog, Harlequin tree frog, Black spotted tree frog, Peat swamp frog, Kuhl’s creek frog and many more.
Arrive at Kubah park HQ and start walking up the Summit Road to the frog pond. Along the way, look out for frogs at the side of the road and nocturnal wildlife in the forest. The tiny Matang narrow mouth frog can sometimes be spotted at the side of the road amongst the pitcher plants. Adult males are only 10.6-12.8 mm in size. Arrive at the frog pond, search for frogs and listen to wonderful frog sounds. In 2014 Australian sound recordist Marc Anderson recorded the frogs at Kubah and won the “Most Beautiful Sound in the World” competition. Enjoy similar sounds as ‘’Dusk by the Frog Pond‘. Stand in the middle of Borneo rainforest and listen to a living orchestra of wildlife. After your frogging experience, walk back to the park HQ. Depart Kubah around 2200-2300 hours and travel back to Kuching and be dropped off at your hotel.
Note: Please ensure you have an early dinner before the tour. Bring a good torch (flashlight) or head lamp, drinking water, mosquito repellent, snacks, poncho or raincoat. Wear good walking shoes.
