Ex-Sandakan Borneo Rainforest Lodge is built on the banks of the Danum river, hidden deep in Danum Valley where it provides environmentally friendly rustic, international standard accommodation. Limited to a maximum of 60 people, Borneo Rainforest Lodge aims to deliver individual and unique jungle experiences.
Danum Valley is renowned for its diverse plant and animal life making it the ideal location for a Borneo Safari. Extremely rare and endangered species are known to roam the jungle.
Sumatran Rhino, Pygmy Elephant, Bornean Gibbon, Leaf Monkey and Clouded Leopard have all been spotted before. Orang utans and proboscis monkeys, both found only in Borneo, also roam freely and are often seen in the wild jungle of Danum Valley.
The jungle around Borneo Rainforest Lodge is also an ornithologist’s paradise. Over 275 species of bird have been recored here, contributing to Danum Valley’s reputation as being the best place for experiencing Borneo wildlife. It is therefore no surprise that birdwatching is a popular activity at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge and have resident nature guides with in-depth knowledge.
Other activities available whilst at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge include the ever popular canopy walkways. Perched high above the jungle floor visitors have the opportunity to experience jungle life from the top down. Jungle walks, including night walks, bring visitors closer to the sights and sounds of the jungle.
Don’t be fooled into thinking the jungle is quiet; it can be as noisy as a busy city with the different critters trying to outdo each other for attention.
