Welcome to Way Kambas National Park
It is believed that around 180 wild Sumatran elephants (Elephas maximus sumatrensis) live in the park, but reliable estimates are uncertain and poaching and development pressures are constant. Another rare but endemic creature in Way Kambas is the Sumatran rhino, the only two-horned rhino of the Asian species; its hide is red in colour with a hairy coat. However sightings of it are extremely rare, as is spotting the Sumatran tiger, the other celebrity animal in the park.
Tourist facilities within the park are limited. About 13km from its entrance, on the main road, is the township, where there are lodgings and simple food options.
