INFAPRO

Strategically located near the gate of Danum Valley Field Centre, INFAPRO is a tree nursery project base that is responsible for replanting areas of forest that has been logged in the past. When accommodation in Danum Valley Field Centre is full or closed, INFAPRO is used as an alternative.

Rooms at INFAPRO are comfortable and clean with ensuite bathrooms, hot water, air conditioning, and 24-hour electricity. Food is simple yet tasty. The accommodation is just a half an hour drive to Danum Valley Field Centre (DVFC), and this is where all activities take place. Spend the day with your guide exploring the extensive network of trails during early mornings, late afternoons, and night walks. If that isn’t exciting enough, the added advantage of staying at INFAPRO is the opportunity to spot wildlife during safari drives – early mornings, afternoons as well as night drives.
