Itinerary Danum Valley Trekking
Day 1 (L/D)
Are you ready for the jungle life? Then let’s meet at Bike and Tours Bed and Breakfast in the morning before you depart Lahad Datu at 9:00am for Danum Valley Field Center (DVFC). Upon arrival at the center, you need to register and check in and listen to a short briefing by the DVFC staff. Should you decide to go for optional night safari on a 4X4, this is the time to inform the DVFC staff so that you can enjoy this ride after dinner.
Note: Should you also decide to go for a morning Sunrise experience at Bukit Atur on Day 2, please inform the staff while you are here to arrange for the 4x4.
After check in you can spend some time with your guide who will share information on the tropical jungle of Danum Valley. Once you have acclimatized to your surroundings, enjoy the simple local lunch prepared by the DVFC kitchen crew. Relax or take a short snooze before going on for a midafternoon walk surrounding the area as an introduction to the Borneo Rainforest. The area surrounding the center is a combination of both nature and wildlife and sometimes when one is lucky, you get to spot the Orang Utan, Red Leaf monkeys and Hornbills. Return to the center before sundown and feast on the local dinner. After dinner, put all your senses on alert whilst you experience the included guided night walk or optional night safari at the back of a pick-up truck. Look out for the nocturnals that rule the jungle of Danum Valley.
