Leave the bustling city of Singapore behind for the wilds of Malaysian Borneo, a 2.5 hour flight away. Arrive in Kota Kinabalu - formerly known as Jesselton. Connect onward to Lahad Datu. Upon arrival, meet your guide for a 2-hour overland transfer by a 4x4 vehicle through the jungles to Danum Valley. As recent as the early 1960s, this nature sanctuary located in the southeastern corners of Sabah was virtually inaccessible and cut off from civilization by the vast surrounding primary forests. Settle into Borneo Rainforest Lodge, and weather-permitting, go on an afternoon or night safari drive. Research efforts in Danum have revealed a tremendous variety of plants and a full range of Sabah’s lowland fauna. More than 120 mammals including 10 species of primates, 40 species of fish, over 300 species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, a profusion of butterflies, thousands of insects, worms, other mollusks and invertebrates are found here.
A wildlife-lover’s haven - step into the rainforest and explore as you stroll through the Danum Valley. Pay the Danum Valley Field Center a visit, where you’ll have the opportunity to sit on a balcony to observe gibbons, orangutans and other monkeys in their natural habitat. Look for the Monitor Lizards - you may see the massive creature crawling around the forest floor. After lunch, you may enjoy the remainder of your afternoon at leisure or go hiking through the valley.
Wake up early and witness how the local wildlife start their day. For a birds-eye view of the surrounding jungle, go for a walk on the Canopy Bridge, suspended above the lush treetops. Peer out amongst a sea of green, and spot polychrome, feathered birds, lizards darting about in the canopy, and if you are lucky, orangutans as they swing from tree to tree. Hike to the Kadazan Dusun burial site, also known as the Coffin Cliff. The area was formally a burial site for the Indigenous Tidong tribe, who originally came into Danum Valley for its abundance of game and fish. Today, human remains can still be found in this spooky area. Take a final night walk in search of the nocturnal animals.
