Geography of Brunei

Nature

On a nearly 100 km stretch, Brunei has a coastal plain within a coral coast with sandy beach. The western part of the country consists of the two rivers Belaits and Tutong's flat river plains. Further inland, the terrain is nice and reaches up to 500 m above sea level. The eastern, narrower part includes mostly the Temburong river basin, which begins in a mountainous country (900 m above sea level) and traverses a wooded area.

Geography of Brunei

The climate is humid tropical type, where the temperature varies between 24 and 30 ~ C and the rainfall exceeds 2,500 mm per year, especially inland.

According to COUNTRYAAH, more than 3/4 of the land area is covered by forest, and only 2% are cultivable. Wildlife is rich and varied with several species of monkeys, birds, lizards and snakes.

Nature conservation

In 2010, there were two national parks in Brunei; Ulu Temburong and Tasek Merimbun.
