Tabin Wildlife Reserve

Tabin-Wildlife-Reserve.jpgEncounter wild Borneo at its best. Tabin is an enormous dipterocarp rainforest landscape in the eastern part of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo with a diverse range of flora and fauna.
Tabin was declared a wildlife reserve because of the large numbers of animal species inhabiting its forest, including several which are highly endangered. With a protected forest area of 120,500 hectres, Tabin plays an important role as a dedicated ground for the breeding of endangered wildlife and protected mammals in Sabah. It is no wonder that Tabin has been heralded as the finest wildlife viewing area in Borneo. The three largest mammals of Sabah, namely Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Sumatera Rhinoceros and Tembadau are all found within Tabin.

In order to encounter Tabin wildlife at its best the Tabin rainforest lodge offers an excellent opportunity to stay in comfort in the jungle. Tabin's authentic Borneo-style timber chalets are built on a small hill, co-existing with nature. They each have their own private balcony and hot shower and enable one to enjoy nature while at the same time have access to modern facilities.
