Those who happen to visit Lahad Datu someday, I recommend you guys to drop by here and have some makan-makan (dinner is highly recommended). Aman Santai Corner sure got varieties of delicious meals on their menu and claimed that the chef cook is Burmese. They also selling burgers + chicken wings + satay madu.. worth it!

During my recent visit to Lahad Datu, I manage to skip some of my busy time for half day visit to the famous Tabin Wildlife Reserve.

In case if you don’t know, Tabin is the home to some highly endangered animal species and protected mammals in Lahad Datu and also plays an important role for the breeding wildlife mammals in Sabah, Borneo Malaysia.

Located about 48km north-east of Lahad Datu town, the journey to the resort is by gravel road of mud, and I recommended to use 4wd vehicles. Along the journey, you will witness palm plantation surrounding the area. Actually there’s a short cut which will take you about 50 minutes to reached the resort, due to wrong direction, the journey took me about 1 hour + 20 minutes drive.

I was lucky when someone passing by and show me the correct direction..

After about one hour drive, finally I reached at entrance of the main gate.

Once you pass by the main gate and start entering the area, you may need to drive slowly as you might see some huge wildlife crossing the road.

Suddenly I saw one huge squirrel crossing..

At last, arrived at Tabin Wildlife Resort.

Few of the chalets are just around the welcome area.

There’s another type of chalets located nearby the area, but you need to walk along this path to reach there.

Along the path, you would see this scenery.

Most of the trees there are so huge.

Those overnight guests can always enjoy their breakfast/lunch/dinner at Sunbird Cafe rather than 1-2 hours drive out for some food.

You may not missed to see the stairs in front of Sunbird Cafe which are made from several types of Borneo timber.

You may also note down any kind of animals species that you spot during your trip to Tabin in this book.

Beside Tabin is indeed a perfect place for wildlife photographers, I don’t mind to travel all the way to this jungle for some overnight adventure trip, meaning to say not to stay overnight in a chalet, but to stay an overnight camp maybe. Heh! heh! more adventurous bah!
