Danum Valley Conservation Area
Located deep in the Bornean jungle, the Danum Valley Conservation Area holds a special place in ecotourism. The lowland dipterocarp rainforest covers 438 square kilometres and has remained unchanged for millions of years. With one of Asia’s most prominent conservation field centres, filled with scientists and experienced guides, visitors will receive exposure to a wealth of expertise found nowhere else in Malaysia. On-site accommodation ranges from a hostel bed to chalets. Daily activities include jungle trekking, wildlife spotting, night safaris and canopy walks. Lucky tourists might see orangutans, pygmy elephants and sambar deer.
