Helpful Questions from Other Travellers

Q
Will I definitely see Orangutans?
A
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!
Q
What should I pack?
A
Basic first aid supplies (e.g. bandaid, ibuprofen, antiseptic and gauze)
Binoculars
Cash (for any alcoholic beverages or souvenirs that you may like to buy)
Comfortable trekking pack
Dry bag
Hat
Head lamp
Mosquito repellent
Sunglasses
Sunscreen
Swimwear
Toiletries
Walking shoes
Water bottle
