Gomantong Cave Bats Watching Tour

Gomantong Cave is home to over a million bats from a variety of bats species, including the wrinkle-lipped bat, the Philippine horseshoe bat, and the fawn leaf-nosed bat..

Spend the day in the largest limestone and bird nests cave in Sabah where millions of swiftlets make the cave their home. You will have a chance to see the feeding of the Bat Hawk on millions of bats that merge out from the cave in search for food during the time of the day. 

If you enjoy birds watching, why not consider to expand your interest to include there interesting animals. Very similar to other birds species they do need your love and protection. Many will think that they are unattractive but it’s hard to deny that they play an important role in many environments around the world. Some plants depend partly or wholly on bats to pollinate their flowers or spread their seeds, while other bats also help control pests by eating insects. It's hard to deny that they've at least earned our gratitude and respect for their incredible contribution and the work they do on our behalf.
