 Borneo Wildlife Jungle Tour (Tabin Wildlife, Lahad Datu & Borneo Rainforest Lodge) Malaysia Tour Package

 

 

Lahad Datu is situated in Tawau District which is also well known for its interior mountain ranges. Although it may be a small and remote town, its economic activities are very similar to those of its neighbouring town. Basically, timber, palm oil, rubber and cocoa are the main livelihoods of Lahad Datu. It is also the gateway to the renowned virgin rainforest of the Danum Valley Conservation Area, Tabin Wildlife Reserve in the east and the Madai Caves further south.

Tabin Wildlife Reserve is an enormous dipterocarp rainforest landscape in the eastern part of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo with a most 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 hectares, Tabin plays an important role as a dedicated ground for the breeding of endangered wildlife and protected mammals in Sabah. Thus, 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 in this exclusive area! Madai Caves is an important place for birds' nests. The village at the entrance of the largest cave comes alive twice a year when the Ida’an community comes to harvest the birds' nests from various parts of the caves. It is a special communal event, almost like a festival. The harvesting is a dramatic event with the men risking their lives to prise precious nests from the cave roof. The Ida’ans have held their rights to the Madai Caves for over 20 generations.
