HomeBlogs Way Kambas National Park Way Kambas National Park is a large national park covering 1,300 square
kilometres in Lampung province, south Sumatra, Indonesia.
Kambas consists of swamp forest and lowland rain forest, but was
extensively logged before becoming a reserve in 1972 so there is little
primary forest. The reserve still has a few Sumatran Tigers and
reasonable numbers of elephants. It is also provides excellent
birdwatching, with the rare White-winged Duck among the species present.
special feature of this national park is the Sumatran Rhinoceros still
present in the area. Only 275 remain in South East Asia today. In Way
Kambas a managed breeding center or Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS) has
been build up in 1995. At this moment 5 Sumatran Rhinos live at the
Sanctuary, most have been translocated from zoos to the large enclosures
(with natural habitat) at the SRS.
