One of the finest places to really get away from it all and experience wildlife in its most natural environments make the long and bumpy journey to the Danum Valley. It is located a two hour drive from the nearest town of Lahad Datu. The whole area is primary rainforest jungle far removed from human habitation. Renowned for its rich variety of both flora and fauna, the surrounding jungles are home to extremely rare and endangered mammals such as the Sumatran Rhino, Benteng Elephant, Clouded Leopard, Bornean Gibbon, and Leaf Monkey, as well as Orangutan and Proboscis Monkeys. Bird life is equally extensive and varied with over 275 individual species having been recorded, giving Danum Valley a reputation for being one of the best places for viewing Borneo's wildlife. The canopy walkway is a great way to experience life in the treetops where most of the wildlife actually lives. There are also a number of easy to follow jungle trails near the lodge including one up to the viewpoint which passes an ancient tribal burial site and the way back down to the lodge passes a number of natural rock pools perfect for cooling off after the jungle walk!
