"What I like about Taman Tumbina is that it has beautiful and hypnotic scenery. It feels like you are traveling in a very peaceful jungle, when nature is always there to keep us company and soothe our eyes and heart. If I am not mistaken, the entrance fee is RM 2.00 for adults and RM 1.00 for children. I did trips with my friends before going to Tanjung Batu beach which is near Taman Tumbina Bintulu. You can also go for jungle treks in Taman Tumbina and moreover we can relax our mind at the same time by looking at nature."
Taman Tumbina is a leisure park, close to the city of Bintulu. The distance to the city center is about 5 kilometers. This park has a large collection of flora and fauna, which attracts the attention of every visitor. In addition, the hilly position of this park overlooks the South China Sea, as it is by the sea. This park covers an area of approximately 57 hectares of flora and fauna. The combination of zoo and botanical garden makes Tumbina Park not only a tourist spot, but also a place for education, conservation, research and development.
You should ask for a map of Tumbina Park at the entrance so you don't get lost and don't miss anything. There are helpful staff walking around the park, who can show you the right way if necessary. There is also a restaurant in this park, where visitors can eat and drink something. There is also a souvenir shop, which sells various handicrafts and souvenirs typical of Sarawak.
The park is the first of its kind in Sarawak and has several mammals, reptiles, birds and fish (in the fish pond). In terms of animals, the tiger is the top attraction of the Taman Tumbina. In the same area you will find the much smaller leopard cat and other felines. The bear marten, sun bear civets, crocodiles and deer are among others other mammals that live in the park.
Squirrels roam freely through the park in the trees and on the ground. If you're lucky, they'll just come down to watch the odd looking people entering their domain. Taman Tumbina Park is also the only place in Sarawak where you can see great flamingos. They are the stars of the park's aviary, along with the ostrich and other birds, such as eagles, owls, and hornbills.
There is a special place for butterflies in the Taman Tumbina, the Butterfly World.
Of course there is also a wide variety of flora. Cacti, ferns and a large amount of trees and shrubs thrive in the Taman Tumbina. The park is home to Sarawak's largest collection of orchids. Towering trees provide plenty of shade, which are perfect for a leisurely stroll on the park's hilly slopes.
The park is easily accessible by bus or taxi. The park is open daily from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM and is just a 5-minute walk from Tanjung Batu Beach.
