Experience Ancient Rainforest During a 4D3N Danum Valley Package, Sabah, Malaysia

Borneo Rainforest Lodge, located alongside the Danum River, is home to 31 individual chalets with fans and en-suite bathrooms, accommodating up to only 60 guests on any one day and on a full-board basis. All the Chalets at Borneo Rainforest Lodge are installed with ceiling fans instead of air conditioning units (for environmental reasons). The Standard Chalets offer views of the Jungle and have an outdoor deck area. The Deluxe Chalets come with outdoor tub and balcony or deck area.

A stay at Danum Valley works very well when combined with a trip to the Kinabatangan River or Turtle Island to help you maximise your wildlife encounter opportunities. The Kinabatangan River and Turtle Island offer a more relaxed way to observe wildlife giving you the chance to rest your feet after your treks at Danum Valley.

For a cheaper option for visiting Danum Valley Conservation Area you could consider a stay at Danum Valley Field Center - a working Research Facility. The Field Center offers simple, basic facilities (hence the cheaper price) and still provides the opportunity to experience the beauty of this pristine rainforest.
