The Kawag Forest Area is located on the fringes of the Danum Valley Conservation Area and within the Ulu Segama Malua Forest Reserve. Kawag is mostly logged over lowland dipterocarp forest. Over recent years various scientific expeditions have found that the logged over forest at Kawag is coming back to life with many species thriving in Kawag’s disturbed forest. In view of the potential for wildlife watching the Sabah state government opened the 20-room Kawag Danum Rainforest Lodge in late 2016. Wildlife found at Kawag includes orangutan, pygmy elephants, wild cattle, deer, monkeys and over 100 species of birds.
We offer 3 and 4 day tours to Kawag Forest Area, see our Danum tours section for more information and prices.
