Borneo rainforest trekking tour in Sabah

This 5-day Borneo Jungle Adventure Trekking Holiday in Sabah is moderately-paced and available on request. To give you an even greater appreciation of the biodiversity of Malaysia, the trip includes one night at Abai Jungle Lodge at Kinabatangan and three nights at Borneo Rainforest Lodge in the Danum Valley Conservation Area, the oldest rainforest in Borneo.

Your Borneo jungle trekking adventure begins with a visit to Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre for feeding time with the Orang-utans. In the afternoon we take a cruise along the Kinabatangan River until dusk, when the fireflies appear to light up the riverbanks, followed by a night walk along the nature boardwalk and a relaxing night at Abai Jungle Lodge.

The following day we transfer to Borneo Rainforest Lodge, nestled in a magnificent setting alongside the Danum river that flows through Sabah’s largest protected lowland rainforest, where you can explore 43,800 hectares of pristine and undisturbed tropical flora and fauna.

Your Borneo jungle trekking tour gives you the opportunity to observe some of the 120 mammal species in the region, including Western Tarsiers, Pygmy Elephants, Clouded Leopards, Bornean Gibbons, Red Leaf Monkeys, Macaques, Bearded Pigs, Slow Lorises, Giant Red Flying Squirrels and Sun Bears. The area also attracts more than 340 resident and migrant bird species, many endemic to Sabah, such as the Great Argus, Bornean Bristlehead, Asian Paradise Flycatcher and, of course, the magnificent Rhinoceros Hornbill, the national bird of Malaysia. There also 72 types of reptile and 56 amphibian species, as well a staggering 200 types of plant per hectare.

This Borneo jungle trekking adventure includes excursions to the Kadazan-Dusun Tribal Burial Cliff, a walk along the Segama River and trips to the Fairy Falls and Serpent Falls. You can enjoy a cooling dip in a natural pool or, if you are feeling adventurous, a tubing trip down the river. Night safaris are arranged in the evening to observe the nocturnal wildlife of the rainforest as it emerges from hiding.
