Danum Valley Field Centre has a wide range of facilities besides visitor accommodation, library, computer room (with 'broadband' services), conference room, environmental education building with classroom, theatre and display areas, multi purpose hall, a suspension bridge over the Segama River, public telephone, research plots and over 50 kilometers of marked trails, including a self-guided nature trail.


There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your stay – climb up to a tree-hide to observe early-morning wildlife, swim in the river to escape the midday heat, and catch a sunrise from atop Bukit Atur. And of course trekking! There are longer hikes for those that are feeling adventurous, and nightly walks for spotting nocturnal creatures. Danum Valley Field Center is recommended for keen naturalists and adventurous travelers who are content with basic, clean, and comfortable facilities.
