For 3 days/2 nights, you and a friend will get the chance to stay at the luxurious Belum Rainforest Resort, and experience a wide array of activities with meals provided for the two of you. If you’re looking to create a film about nature – a la David Attenborough – then you’ll be in for a treat.

Right on the first day, you’ll be bamboo rafting, where you can try standing up and rowing on the lake – not as easy as it sounds!

There are many sights and sounds in the Belum Rainforest (one of the oldest rainforests of the world), and you will get the chance to experience them both day and night. Take a night trek down the forest trail and be surprised by what wildlife you can spot in the shadows of the night! In the day, watch out for up to 3 types of Rafflesia which can be found inside this same forest!

In addition, Belum rainforest is also home to many endangered species, such as the Asiatic elephants, white haired gibbons, tapirs and even the Malaysian sun bear. Wild boars and deer roam freely around the property as well. Look up in the trees, and you may find up to 10 species of hornbills – this is the only existing forest where you can spot all the species that inhabit Malaysia (don’t forget to bring those zoom lenses!).

The fun doesn’t stop in the jungle either – during this short excursion you’ll also get to visit an Orang Asli village, and maybe try out some archery! If you’re ready to go wild, then click on the link below.
