The Danum Valley Conservation Area is a tract of lush lowland forest where you’ll find a protected area of pristine jungle untouched by human hands. Climb aloft to traverse treetop bridges and enter the bemusing aerial home of proboscis monkeys and orangutan.
The estimated 15,000 varieties of plants will thrill gardeners and they set a verdant stage for the many endangered animal species that live beneath the canopy. Let us arrange a guided boardwalk trek for you to join researchers rehabilitating orangutans or a winding river cruise where you may spot curious otters and bewildering proboscis monkeys before unwinding in the evenings at the rustic Borneo Rainforest Lodge in a private chalet.
Similarly, the Tabin Wildlife Reserve which is situated on the Dent Peninsula, to the south of the Segama River, is home to the three largest mammals in Sabah: the increasingly rare Bornean rhinoceros, ambling Bornean elephant, and the native tembadau (wild cattle). This protected area is also home to the iconic copper-hued orangutans, proboscis monkeys and several other spirited primate species.
