To find the untouched natural jungle of Brunei, head to Temburong, the strip of land that has been separated from Brunei since 1884. The land is sparsely populated by Malay, Iban, and Murut groups and most people come to the area to visit the Ulu Temburong National Park. The result of the sultan's forest protection policy, the 500 square kilometer park is made up of dense forest trails, canopy walkways, and a nice river. On the popular canopy walk, you can see four types of hornbills and gibbons, as well as many squirrels and some of the 50 species of birds that live in the park. Visitors who come here experience a longer and richer jungle trip but must do so in organized tours. Independent travel is highly discouraged and it takes some time to obtain permits.
