Getting There & Away
The Danum Valley is only accessible by authorised private vehicle. Borneo Rainforest Lodge guests depart from the lodge office in Lahad Datu at 9am, arriving by lunchtime. If you do not want to spend the night in Lahad Datu, take the 6.10am Malaysia Airlines flight from KK.
Tourists staying at the Danum Valley Field Centre either come in a private vehicle provided by their tour company, or they must board one of two jungle-bound vans that leave the booking office in Lahad Datu at 3.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Transport is around RM100 per person each way. Vans return to Lahad Datu from the field centre at 8.30am.
