Taman Negara Tour Specialist

1. Birdwatching
Birdwatching in Taman Negara is done by a group of enthusiastic nature guides led by Jenut Holidays' Director and Lead Guide, Mr Amzani Deris. He was the champion of Fraser's Hill International Birdrace 2012 after 13 consecutive years participating in this international competition where teams compete against each other in searching, identifying and recording as many species of birds around a designated area. He is assisted by Mr Zalizan Shim @ Awang Kerek who was the champion in inaugural Taman Negara Birdrace held in October 2012.

Over 380 species of birds have been recorded in Taman Negara, and the number is unmatched by any other wildlife area in the region. One maybe excited with the number of birds they may expect to find but the first-time birdwatchers should acknowledge that they need to be quiet, alert and patient as birdwatching is not easy in the dense rainforest. 

Good binoculars (preferably 10 x 42  or  8 x 42), bird's field guide, notepad and water bottle are essential items during the birding trips. DSLR camera with high-performance telephoto zoom lens is an added advantage.
Birdings in Taman Negara are best done early morning and late afternoon. Popular locations for birdwatchings are around Mutiara Resort, Tahan Hide, Swamp Loop, along Tahan River, Canopy Walkway and Kuala Trenggan.
