Standing under the green cover of the rainforest while being encircled
by the immense diversity of plants, one cannot help but marvel at
the spectacle which took nature centuries to complete.
A seemingly limitless bounty of orchids, ferns, fruit trees, lichens
and lianas are unveiled as jungle trails through Danum Take you
into the heart of the natural world. With over 50 kilometers of
cool hiking trails through the dipterocarp forest and riverine habitats,
a trip into the forest become a new learning experience as knowledgeable
guides point out things easily missed by untrained eyes. Take particular
note that no visitor is allowed to trek or jungle walk without being
accompanied by a guide for their own safety.
The many viewing platforms perched on high plateaus overlook panoramic
vistas and observation decks attached to mighty tropical timbers
allow a visitor closer access into the forest canopy.
Some of the special activities at Danum are the canopy walkway
and night drives in search of wildlife in open jeeps equipped with
spotlights to flush the nocturnal dwellers from the undergrowth.
The 27 meter high L-shaped canopy walkway anchored by sturdy Mengaris
and Majau trees gives visitors a bird's eye view of the forest and
is a perfect vantage point for bird watching.
