Danum Valley Nature Tour, Sabah, Malaysia


Danum Valley rainforest adventure, Sabah

This leisurely-paced 4-day Danum Valley Nature Tour in eastern Sabah is available on request and is the ideal place to enjoy the unique sights and sounds of the Danum Valley Conservation Area, the oldest rainforest in Borneo.

From your base at the tranquil Borneo Rainforest Lodge, nestled in a magnificent setting alongside the Danum river that flows through Sabah’s largest protected lowland rainforest, you can explore 43,800 hectares of pristine and undisturbed tropical flora and fauna.

Your Danum Valley tour gives you the opportunity to observe some of the 120 mammal species in the region, including Western Tarsiers, Pygmy Elephants, Orang-utans, 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.

Your Danum Valley tour 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.

Highlights of this Danum Valley Nature Tour include:

  • The chance to observe 122 mammal species and 340 resident and migrant types of bird, as well as numerous reptiles, amphibians and insects
  • Excursions to the Kadazan-Dusun Tribal Burial Cliff, Segama River, Fairy Falls and Serpent Falls
