3D2N Add-on trip toDanum Valley
This is a 3D2N add-on trip to the Danum Valley Conservation Area, staying at the Danum Valley Field Centre, trekking through primary rainforest with a private nature guide whilst searching for some of Borneo's elusive wildlife.
After a short two-hour car journey from the nearest town of Lahad Datu, we reach the Danum Valley Conservation Area which covers an area of 438km sq. It was set up to protect the region and its wildlife against logging and the rainforest here has an isolated and pristine feel to it. There are a number of viewpoints along the treetop canopy of the dense jungle foliage and dramatic mountains that stretch for miles on every side; it really is a nature lover’s paradise.
The area is known for its huge variety of birds and other wildlife. It’s possible to spot wild cats, orangutans, macaques, gibbons, red leaf monkeys, pygmy elephants and — if you are very lucky — the rare clouded leopard. The canopy walkway is a great way to experience life in the treetops where much of the wildlife is to be found.
A number of jungle trails are available, including the trek to the viewpoint which passes Coffin Cliff, an ancient Kadazan Dusun burial site.
The guide price of £775 is based on 2 people sharing a standard room with fan, all meals, wildlife guide, one safari night drive, transfers to and from Lahad Datu, conservation and camera fees.
This excludes tourism tax, private guide / extended safari upgrades or personal expenses.
