 The Flying Dusun Sdn Bhd

The Flying Dusun Sdn Bhd (company no: 657104/A) was incorporated in Malaysia 23 June 2004, by Mr Nichlos Duanis and Mr Herman Scholz in order to further the studies, research and conservation of the indigenous cultures and traditions of Sabah, and to create a wider awareness of Sabah’s rich traditional and historical heritage not only amongst the local people themselves, but also amongst travellers to Sabah.

Founders of the Flying Dusun Sdn Bhd  
Nichlos Duanis @ Nick
in charge of the cultural troupe and ensemble

Of Dusun origin and long time Managing Director of the Monsopiad Cultural Village in Sabah, Nick has developed an acute sense of the urgency of the conservation of Sabah’s cultural and traditional heritage. During his eight years at the Monsopiad Cultural Village he has learned and taught most of Sabah’s cultural dances and was in charge of the dance troupe and cultural ensemble, as well as of the general maintenance of the site. This has also given him a good feel of travellers' needs and expectations, and he has gathered much experience in Sabah's growing tourism industry.

Herman Scholz
in charge of communications and research

Of Swiss origin he has graduated from the Hotel School in Lausanne and before discovering Sabah he was in charge of the general management and accounts of various establishments in France and South Africa. He has been in Sabah for the past 10 years, during most of which he has worked with a local tour operator. With a rediscovered passion for culture and their conservation he worked for two years as the Honorary Curator and in the general management of the Monsopiad Cultural Village in Sabah and is keen on helping conserve Sabah’s traditions and cultures. This includes showing them to travellers through exclusive tours and expeditions.
