Itinerary

Day 1:

Transfer to Kota Kinabalu International Airport. Upon arrival at Lahad Datu Airport, transfer by road to Tabin Wildlife Reserve. Check in at Tabin Wildlife Resort, which comes complete with private balcony, ceiling fan and hot water shower - a welcome luxury in the forest.

Nestled within the rainforest beside the Lipad river, this lovely setting is home to a surprising variety of birds, insects and small mammals. In the afternoon, visit the Lipad mud volcano which provides a mineral salt lick for wildlife. Try to identify the multitude of animal footprints here. Climb the observation tower and admire the contrasting landscape, where birds are commonly sighted.

After dinner, enjoy a slide presentation on Tabin's natural wonders, followed by a trip to look for nocturnal wildlife and birds.

Day 2:

You have the option to join the early morning bird walk to discover some of Tabin's rich collection of almost 300 bird species, or trek through the lush green rainforest known for its rich diversity of plants and animal species to visit Lipad Waterfall. Take a dip in the natural pool and enjoy a natural and refreshing shower under the waterfall. Alternatively, explore the surrounding vegetation or just relax.

In the afternoon, you may wish to try out the Tabin Rainforest Foot Soak made with a natural blend of herbs, to relax tired muscles after long jungle treks.

Day 3:

After breakfast, stroll to the nearby rock pool or river side where groups of macaques and other small mammals can sometimes be seen. Choose to take a dip in the river or simply listen to the sound of nature before saying good bye to Tabin. Transfer to Lahad Datu Airport for departure flight.
