Where to see frogs in East Malaysia?
All National Parks in Sarawak and Sabah are excellent places to see and enjoy the spectacular frogs of Borneo. Some examples are given on this page. Explore the respective site during the day and go out with a torch and headlamp at night to spot the frogs. We use torches and headlamps with LED technology.
