Transfer from Lahad Datu to Tabin Wildlife Reserve on gravel road. Journey to this largest wildlife reserve in Malaysia takes about 1 hour. 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.
