About Danum Valley


A remarkable nature reserve that is home to lush and diverse flora and fauna, this little piece of paradise is also habitat to some of the world’s most unique species that are endemic to Borneo. There are more than 120 mammals such as the orangutans, bantengs, pygmy elephants as well as 10 species of primates found in Danum Valley. Not only that, there are also over 300 species of birds that’s can be found there including the Bornean Bristlehead, Pittas and Hornbills. No wonder Danum Valley is every researcher, environmentalist and naturalist’s dream come true.

It is considered as one of the last few undisturbed lowland rainforest in the world, a jungle jewel worth exploring. About 90% of the conservation area is classified as lowland dipterocarp forest and the remaining 10% is low canopy and sub-montane forest that are mainly found in the heart of Danum Valley on Mount Danum.

The conservation area is the quintessential location for any nature and wildlife enthusiast with its undeniably beautiful landscape and diverse biodiversity, especially for jungle trekking, bird watching, wildlife viewing and photography. Those are just some of the many things you can do during your escapade there. There are also indoor activities that you can do there if you prefer, like visiting the Nature Discovery Centre where you can listen to presentations by scientists, watch interpretive displays and join in environmental education activities.
