Welcome to Danum Valley Conservation Area, the home of a 130-million-year-old ancient rainforest; he perfect place to immerse yourself in a journey of discovery experiencing some of the finest wildlife and nature encounters Malaysian Borneo has to offer. This 438-square-kilometer reserve is not only home to some of the oldest rainforests in Borneo, it is also home to the tallest trees in the tropics with the largest towering 100.8 meters above the forest floor. In 2016, researchers discovered some 30 trees within the conservation area measuring over 90 meters in height.
Danum Valley’s core area is one of the best examples of primary lowland dipterocarp forest boasting rich communities of flora and fauna with many species being endemic to the island. With long established research projects, and more recently an increase in tourists visiting the area, the wildlife has become habituated to humans making Danum Valley the ideal location to spot some of Borneo’s most iconic animals in their natural environment. Losing yourself in the forest in search of Gibbons, Orangutans, Red Leaf Monkeys, Hornbills, and other wild creatures will be a real treat as there is always something new to discover in the jungle.
