Are you a cycling enthusiast? Take in the jungles of Borneo on two wheels! This package is an add-on to our Danum Valley programs, giving you the option of starting or finishing your trip with a day of cycling. The Danum Cycling package can be added onto our DVFC Explorer and Sungai Purut Camping programs at the Danum Valley Field Center. Whether you’re biking in or out, all of the cycling trips end in Taliwas Forestry and Recreation Area, which serves as the midway point between Lahad Datu and your Danum Valley destinations.
For the DVFC programs, add a bike ride onto the front end of your trip with a thirty-kilometer cruise from Silam (on the outskirts of Lahad Datu) to Taliwas. Pedal through a jungly landscape on dirt roads, finish up at Taliwas with a dip in the river, and enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch before getting picked up for an afternoon drive to DVFC. To conclude your program by bike, get an early start on your last day for a forty-kilometer ride from DVFC to Taliwas. After a dip in the river and a light snack, catch a lift back to Lahad Datu for a tasty lunch.
