This 438 sq km of protected primary rainforest is one of the most complex eco-systems in the world. Teeming with unique wildlife of all shapes and sizes, it's thought to have the highest concentration of wild orang-utans found anywhere in the world. The region is a lush rainforest paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.
As well as orang-utans, this pristine conservation area is home to troops of sociable macaques and athletic gibbons, over 300 species of bird, and an incredible variety of trees and flora. If you’re extremely lucky you may get to spot the rare clouded leopard or Sumatran rhino.
The night safaris are a highlight for many, and are often one of the best times to see pygmy elephants as they forage about the forest.
Besides wildlife spotting, enjoy treetop canopy walkways and exhilarating jungle treks. One of our favourite treks is the Coffin Cliff trail, passing an ancient Kadazan Dusun burial site and several waterfalls - ideal for a much-needed cooling off en route!
