Danum or Tabin: which is the ultimate ‘rainforest experience’?

One of the main attractions of Borneo is its ancient rainforest.

The jungle spans millions of hectares and there are a number of places where you can get a really good ‘rainforest experience’. Two of the most popular are Danum Valley and the Tabin Wildlife Reserve. Both are situated in the eastern state of Sabah with access via the town of Lahad Datu. Due to their proximity to each other, they are often compared. I recently visited both, so thought I would offer a little insight into factors you might want to consider when choosing which one to visit.
