On a sprawling undisturbed land, 44 miles west of Lahad Datu in Borneo, lies nature’s jewel called the Danum Valley Conservation Area. And on this fascinating three day tour you will see just why this is one of the richest conservation areas in the world with more than 200 species of trees providing a natural home for endangered wildlife such as the Sumatran rhino, banteng, Asian elephant, clouded leopard, orang utan, and proboscis monkey. Being remote from human habitation and almost alien to modern civilisation makes the Danum Valley a naturalist paradise. You will be able to drink in the beauty of this virgin forest by taking nature walks with experienced naturalists. This short tour is a wonderful way to enhance any trip to Malaysia.
Fly from Kota Kinabalu to Lahad Datu Airport where you will be met by a tour guide. After a tour briefing begin the two and a half hour road trip to Borneo Rainforest Lodge. After an exotic welcome drink you will begin your adventures in the forest with a nature trail followed by the Canopy Walkway. Then take a night drive in an open-air jeep in search of nocturnal animals.
Begin the day with an early morning jungle walk and another visit to the Canopy Walkway. Other guided jungle activities include a trek to the Kadazandusun burial site - Coffin Cliff - then on to the View Point for a stunning bird's eye view of the area. Later climb down to the Jacuzzi Pool for a refreshing dip. There is also an optional water tubing experience at the Danum River.
Today is your last in the rainforest and the morning is at leisure for you to go exploring on your own or take a guided morning walk along the Segama Trail and Hornbill Trail. After lunch leave for the road journey back to Lahad Datu and your flight back to Kota Kinabalu having seen so much memorable and exotic wildlife in the jungles of Borneo
