The Danum Valley, Sabah State, Borneo, Malaysia.
Awesome photographic contribution by All Points East, Malaysia manager and tour-leader Marc Modin. During a night trek in Sabah’s fabulous Danum Valley Marc came across this brilliantly coloured, sleeping kingfisher – probably a Brown-winged Kingfisher but impossible to say for sure from this angle!
The remote Danum Valley Forest Reserve is one of Sabah’s most spectacular remaining forest areas and is well worth the effort and expense to get there. A 3 day, 2 night stay at Danum’s Borneo Rainforest Lodge is one of the highlights of our ‘Land Below the Wind‘ Sabah tour: mist shrouded rainforest, limestone cliffs and caves, fantastic flora and fauna and the sounds of the jungle! Check out the canopy walkway, join a night safari, hike nature trails with expert local guides or just relax on your chalet balcony and watch the hornbills swoop though the tree tops. Cheers!
