Tabin Wildlife Reserve
Borneo, Borneo (Sabah)
Info : Tabin Wildlife Reserve Day Trek
Set up in 1984, the Tabin Wildlife Reserve, located in the north east of Borneo, provides sanctuary for endangered animals such as the Pygmy elephant, the Tembadau - a type of forest cow - and various species of birds. It covers an area of land two times the size of Singapore and is composed of both primary, secondary rainforest and a plantation - a hetergeneic landscape showing visitors the whole range of Borneo's changing environment.
The day trek offers great opportunities for tracking and photography of the resident animals. There are various natural pools where you can take a refreshing dip and cool off from the heat of the day. An orangutan crossing also gives you a very good chance of seeing the 'old man of the forest' - this is a great opportunity for taking a picture of this animal in the wild.
Whilst it will be humid and some may find the walk tiring, there really is no better way to experience the rainforest and its inhabitants.

We all remarked on how well tourism blended in to the local community in a positive way. At no point did we ever feel exploited or taken advantage of. We felt privileged to visit the Penan tribe in Mulu and enjoyed the market there without any pressure to spend money. Visiting Abai village and planting the trees was also a great experience for all ages of our party. Again, a privilege.
