Danum Valley Conservation Area

Danum Valley Conservation Area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. Borneo’s biodiversity is on full display inside the 472 square kilometer preserve, with well over 500 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians living in the relatively untouched, mostly primary, lowland dipterocarp forest. It’s a little over two hours from Lahad Datu, and whether you post up at the Danum Valley Field Center with the researchers and scientists, or go for jungle luxury at Borneo Rainforest Lodge, you’re guaranteed to have an experience that you won't forget.

Lose yourself in a pristine rainforest on an early morning canopy walk, and look for orangutans while hornbills fly overhead. Uncover a whole new layer to the jungle while out on a night hike, have a stare-off with a western tarsier and search for the elusive clouded leopard. Catch one of the best sunrises in Borneo from the top of Bukit Atur, and sleep in a stretcher hammock by the base of a waterfall. There's a reason why Danum Valley is one our guests' top picks!
