The Danum Valley Conservation Area

Covering 438 square kilometres of pristine dipterocarp rainforest, the Danum Valley is one of the most outstanding wildlife areas in all South East Asia. With its towering rainforest trees and stunning landscapes, the reserve holds a vast array of fauna including all ten of Sabah’s primate species, wild elephant, the beautiful clouded leopard and 275 bird species. This was also home to one of Malaysia’s last populations of wild rhino until the last surviving female was captured in 2014 and entered into a breeding programme.
