We had such a great time at Kubah one night spotting frogs by torch light with our park ranger guide. Our four kids all got in on the hunt too and we were able to see so many species all in the space of an hour or two. And we saw a pit viper too!

Take bus K21 from the central bus station near the City Mosque. 4MR pp one way + 20MR entrance fee to the park. Taxi / shuttle buses for about 20MR pp also available from the bus station. Obtain a map from the HQ and plan a walk - need good footwear + your own food + carry plenty of water.... More

We went to Kubah during our World Environment Camp, it was for our expedition badge which required each member of the patrol to go 4000ft above sea level so we had to climb the mountain twice to compensate. First of all, the mountain can be a bit steep for the inexperienced trekker though they have well maintained roads from the... More

Walked the waterfall trail with our kids. Took about an hour. Very helpful guy at the HQ recommended an alternative route back via the main trail which was much nicer than coming back down the road. Lovely pool to swim in at the waterfall. Take plenty of water & snacks. Beautiful - a very different feel from Bako. Good footwear... More

My husband and I hired a guide for the day to do both the Kubah Park and the Matang Wildlife Sanctuary. We started at Kubah park and took the moderately easy trail to visit the waterfall. It was a great opportunity to see oversized tropical flora, fauna and trees, as well as massive insects. The walk takes about 2 hours... More

This park is definitely less well-known than Bako National Park, but it is still definitely still worth a visit. I didn't see much wildlife other than frogs and birds, but the trails are nicely marked and well maintained, and there is a great waterfall on one of the trails. The trails are mostly easy - moderate level and are relatively... More

This is the park nearest to the city, so if you do not have much time for a real exploration into the forest, you can always go to Kubah National Park, of which, a visit to the adjacent Matang Wildlife Center is a good combination!

I liked how natural and untouched Kubah National Park felt. The trails were rugged with a lot of ups and downs. I hiked to a waterfall and across other jungle trails. There were much fewer tourists at Kubah than at Bako. Although the wildlife was less present (I only saw one monkey at Kubah, and a bunch of giant insects),... More

The indications regarding the difficulty of the trails were quiet... strange. Prepare a lot of water. The trail can be very difficult in some places for people afraid of height. To go to the waterfall, we took a long road that spoiled a little bit our adventures. To go back we decided to use another trail, but this one was... More

The park is generally hard walking so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Arrived just after dusk and dropped our kit at the accommodation, basic but clean and spacious, then went for a night walk, great! Birded most of the following day. We enjoyed the walking that much we went back on a free day.
