A spectacular mix of primary and secondary forest reserve with plantation, Tabin Wildlife Reserve is a haven for thousands of rare and exotic plant and animal species. In the eastern Malaysian state of Sabah, the reserve occupies a mammoth 1225 square kilometres, including rugged coastal peninsula, lowland forest, and the magnificent Segama River. Come here to get up close and personal with nature, including tembadau, the Borneo elephant, the Sunda Clouded leopard, and the Sumatran rhinoceros.
Observe the mud volcano from a nearby deck and take a night drive through the forest lowland, watching for wild boar as you go. Bird enthusiasts make the trip to spot the elusive blue-headed pitta, the Bornean bristlehead, or one of eight exotic hornbill species.
Access Tabin Wildlife Reserve by plane and road. Lahad Datu is the closest airport with flights from Kota Kinabalu landing daily. Tabin is one hour from the airport, and four hours from Sandakan and Tawau.
