Will I definitely see Orangutans?

No, we're afraid not. Danum Valley has very thick rainforest, and wild Orangutans are curious but shy. Even when the Orangutans are around, they might be in their nests high up in the trees or hidden in the foliage. So you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of their red coats, but as with anything to do with wild animals, it is entirely unpredictable!
