Making Ecotourism in the Danum Valley Region Affordable and Accessible with Kawag Nature Lodge

Residing in Ulu Segama-Malua Forest Reserve in Sabah, Kawag Nature Lodge is an ecotourism initiative and development for nature lovers and outdoor adventure seekers. Built on a 200-million-year-old crystalline basement, near the boundary of Danum Valley Conservation Area (DVCA), Kawag Nature Lodge offers an affordable and comfortable option for visiting the Danum Valley region and exploring its numerous trekking trails.

The Kawag forest is a secondary forest, however, it is one of the most biodiverse areas in Sabah and home to Borneo pygmy elephants, wild cattle, orangutans, gibbons, monkeys, deer, bearded pigs, more than 150 species of bird, a wide array of insects, reptiles and amphibians.

The lodge offers basic yet comfortable en-suite rooms with either an air-conditioner or ceiling fan. Basic amenities are also provided for guests’ convenience and comfort with full board meals served buffet-style.

As local restrictions in Malaysia begin to be lifted and vaccinations take place throughout the country, the Kawag Nature Lodge and the Destination Asia Malaysia team look forward to welcoming international guests again once the situation surrounding COVID-19 has improved. In the meantime, explore the endless opportunities for discovery in Malaysia with our interactive ebook.
