Danum Valley Conservation Area is a 438 square kilometers tract of relatively undisturbed lowland dipterocarp forest in Sabah, Malaysia. It has an extensive diversity of tropical flora and fauna, including such species as the rare East Sumatran rhinoceros, Bornean orangutans, Müller's Bornean gibbons, and other primates, including Horsfield's tarsier, as well as deer, wild cats and the rare Bornean pygmy elephant, mousedeer, clouded leopards and over 270 bird species may be seen. It is the only place where the enigmatic spectacled flowerpecker has been recorded. Other notable species that inhabit the area are the Borneon sun bear and Bornean rhinoceros. The rich insect fauna has been one of the main areas of research in which the Danum Valley Field Centre has been active, and the land snail fauna is also considered one of the richest in the world, with at least 61 species recorded from a 1-km-plot. This is truly a must see place that you would have to tick off, from the bucket list during your journey to Sabah.

Sandakan, the City of Nature obtains its name first from the world famous Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. The centre housed all the wild orang utans that are affected by human activities at the nearby jungle area. With careful monitoring system and nurturing, scientists and researchers are taking good care of these gentle giants in hope of releasing them back to the wild in near future. In recent years, further expansion took place in Sepilok to include other facilities like the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre and the Rainforest Discovery Centre. These facilities were setup with an aim to educate and promote the importance of our natural environment, so that the general public will be enriched with proper knowledge in preserving and conserving our precious rainforest from being further destroyed.

Second to that, the journey to Sandakan would not be completed, without a boat cruise along the Kinabatangan River. As the second longest river in Malaysia; Kinabatangan is known for its remarkable wildlife and fascinating habitats such as limestone caves at Gomantong hill, dryland dipterocarp forests, riverine forest, freshwater swamp forest, oxbow lakes and salty mangrove swamps near the coast.

Maliau Basin, a.k.a. Sabah’s Lost World, is a huge bowl of pristine forests described as one of the few remaining relatively untouched wilderness areas in the world. Bounded by a formidable escarpment reaching over 1,675m above sea level, the almost circular Basin, one of Malaysia’s finest remaining wilderness areas, encompasses 390 km² of pristine forest, a virtually self-contained ecosystem, never permanently inhabited and with large areas still remaining to be explored and documented.

The whole Basin is a single huge water catchment, drained by only one river, the Maliau River, which flows out through a gorge in the southeast of the Basin, joining the Kuamut River and eventually the Kinabatangan, Sabah’s largest and most important river. Nature explorers such as yourself, will simply love the Maliau Basin as it is an excellent site for jungle trekking and bird watching. It contains an unusual assemblage of 12 forest types, comprising mainly of lower montane forest dominated by majestic Agathis trees, rare montane heath forest and lowland, and hill diperocarp forest. The highlight of the adventure is to trek to the majestic 7 tiers Maliau Falls.

Keen visitors must, however, obtain a permission to enter the Maliau Basin in advance before making their trip over. Also bear in mind that Maliau Basin is a remote, atavistic and isolated area with limited access, communications and safety facilities. With that, it would be wise for you, to trek through the jungle with our carefully organized nature guide to minimize the human intervention to the precious remote region.

To get to Maliau Basin, you will first need to take a domestic flight via Malaysia Airline or Asia from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau. Once arrived, our friendly ground crew shall welcome you and commence your journey to the basin!

As it involves some serious jungle trekking and hiking, you will have to make sure that you are physically fit and that you are able to take up the challenge to be cut-off from the modern world. To make the price more affordable, we recommend organizing your own group of friends, or if you’re traveling in pairs, to join in large group of 8 to 12 people. As the region is remote and further inland, and permits are needed to be applied beforehand, advance bookings are highly recommended.
