Tabin Wildlife Reserve Lahad Datu Sabah Tabin Mud Mountain Crater

After breakfast, we opted for a visit to the Lipad Mud Volcano, which is about 20 mins drive by the resort staff and a trek about 700 metres to the volcano.

There is a watchtower for you to view the entire Volcano from atop. There is a package in which guests can stay overnight at this watchtower to experience - waiting for wildlife to come and drink water from the mud volcano in the night, which will probably be remembered for life.

Guests can also do a Volcano Mud Mask as it was said that volcano mud is rich in minerals, like sulfur, magnesium and zinc, its exfoliating properties mean that it removes dead outer layers of skin while it cleanses the skin.

Although you can see bubbles forming from the mud (watch our video), a touch of the mud surprises us as it has very cool. And when applied to our skin, you can feel that refreshing sensation. 

Tabin Wildlife Reserve Night Safari - Bird Watching

When night falls on Tabin Wildlife Reserve, you can opt for a Night Safari Tour. Here you will ride in an open-top lorry that will take you to the reserves to watch the nocturnal activities of the wildlife.

(From L to R)

During our tour, we were quite lucky to have watched the cat leopard, owl, flying squirrel, eagles and so forth in action. The breezy and quiet environment in the forest is very relaxing and calming to our soul. Watching these wild animal life at night is truly very different during day time.
