Due to the inaccessibility of the Maliau basin, it has never been inhabited and never been logged. As a result the forest inside the basin is primary rainforest and due to the isolation there are a number of endemic species. There is also abundant wildlife, which however is not easy to spot as it is spread across the jungle and not concentrated in one place. Some logging activities are ongoing in the buffer zone outside the actual basin. In the southern part of the Maliau basin, the one accessible to tourists, there are a number of trails connecting the various camps and some of the waterfalls.
