Wake up to the calls of birds, insects and other animals.
After breakfast, we will drive for about 4 hours to the Lahad Datu. Thereafter, continue to Tabin Wildlife Centre. Check into an attractive timber lodge at Tabin Wildlife Resort, which comes complete with private balcony, air conditioner, ceiling fan and hot water shower, a welcome luxury in the forest. Nestled within the rainforest beside the Lipad river, this loely setting is home to a surprising variety of birds, insects and small mammals. Discover the rich variety of jungle herbs, some endemics, used for generations by local folks for the treatment of various ailments.
In the afternoon, trek from the Elephant trail to the active Lipad mud volcano which provide a mineral salt lick for wildlife, arrive at the elevated bare area of the mud volcano which is frequented by wildlife and birds. Try to identify the multitude of animal footprints here. The adventurous can try the effects of the volcanic mud, said to be responsible for a fine complexion. Trek from the mud volcano back to the main road.
After dinner, enjoy a night walk to look out for nocturnal wildlife and birds. Remember to look up at the clear, dark sky or Tabin, identify the constellations above you and make a wish or two.
