Tabin Wildlife Resort
Tabin Lodge is cosy, with locally constructed timber chalets dotted throughout the rainforest and along the banks of the River.
Sabah’s two largest mammals are resident in Tabin; banteng or tembadu (wild cattle) and Borneo pygmy elephant. Add to this seven of the eight primates, the largest predator –clouded leopard – and many smaller carnivorous animals and you have a good concentration of wildlife, although orangutan and proboscis monkey sightings can be rare. Some of Tabin’s tropical plants are also said to have medicinal qualities for those with an interest in healing plants. Many consider Tabin also to be a birder’s paradise, as there are over 250 recorded species including colourful and exotic wild birds such as sunbirds, pitta and all eight of Sabah’s hornbills.
The Lipad Waterfall can be hiked to and its waters provide a cooling and refreshing antidote after a busy day exploring the forest. The best place to stay during your time exploring Tabin is the comfortable Tabin Lodge overlooking the free flowing Lipad River.
