Danum Valley's wildlife-rich rainforest
A decent sleep with the sounds of the forest all around you will have you wake smiling at the world class Borneo Rainforest Lodge. Venturing from the high comfort of your room, you’ll soon be immersed in one of the best wild jungle experiences in the world. On any one of the wildlife walks through Sabah’s astoundingly rich Danum Valley Conservation Area, you’ll likely glimpse members of Borneo’s rarer mammalian residents: orang-utans, elephants, barking deer, mouse deer, gibbons, wild boar and leaf monkeys, though you’d be extremely lucky to see the clouded leopard or Sumatran rhino. The primary rainforest in this area is also renowned for its teeming birdlife and waterfalls, and the tree canopy boardwalks allow a bird’s eye view of the jungle. Your nature guide will also show you the best rock pools for swimming and take you on a night walk after dinner: the sounds emanating from the deep forest will have your eyes peeled for civet, flying squirrel, porcupine, sambar deer and leopard cat. An unforgettable jungle wildlife experience.
