Tabin Wildlife Reserve, Borneo
This expansive area of dipterocarp rainforest in the eastern part of Sabah, shelters an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna.
Declared a wildlife reserve in 1984 due to the diversity of animals inhabiting its forest, Tabin plays an important role in preserving Sabah's most endangered species.
Wildlife of the Tabin Wildlife Reserve
Tabin has several mud volcanoes and salt-water springs that are high in minerals and attract a variety of wildlife seeking these nutrients. These are great locations for viewing the forest inhabitants, that can also be seen on treks and night drives. Orang-utans, civet and leopard cats, hornbills, pygmy elephants and, if you are extremely lucky, western tarsiers can all be spotted.
Accommodation at the Tabin River Lodge is in 20 simple but comfortable bungalows located either along the river or on the hillside overlooking the rainforest.
