Tawau is located in Borneo Island, a city which offers beyond imagination nature activities arising from amazing diving activities as well as untouched virgin forest. Although Tawau is listed as one of the 6 districts in eastern Sabah with a sea curfew that has been enforced since 2014, Tawau is known to travelers as a popular transit point for travelers heading for the beaches and forests nearby. Our tour gives you an experience of a lowland rainforest which is off the beaten track with intense knowledge of Tawau Hills National Park.
Selamat Datang ke Malaysia or Welcome to Malaysia! Tawau Hills National Park is a beautiful rainforest resort sorrounded by Oil Palm Trees and Cacao Plantations. Upon arrival we will travel from Tawau Airport (TWU) to Tawau Hills which would take approximately 1 hour travel time. Upon arrival, free to wander around the park. If weather permits, we will have an evening or night trekking where nocturnal animals come to life. Overnight in a lodge with basic facilities in Tawau Park.
After breakfast, we will explore the series of trails, suspended bridges and ponds specially for those who appreciates nature. As this place is less touristy, you will definitely have more privacy and connection with the nature. Ensure to have your camera’s ready at all time because you might bump into wild animals anytime anywhere around this Park. A quick tip from our guide is better to have a leech socks or insect repellent with you at all time. Today we will explore Tawau Hills lowland where you could normally spot on Hornbill birds around their nest. Most of the common type of Hornbill in Malaysia is the Rhinoceros Hornbill which is also the national bird for Malaysia. The environment is fantastic with jungle setting and it is always cool under tall trees.
After breakfast, starts our exciting expedition on the search of the Borneo Pygmy Elephants in Sabah Softwood Brumas camp plantation. It is impossible to tell the exact timing whether we will be spotting wildlife’s or not as dealing with nature is something unpredictable especially in the wildlife safari. Our exploration around the area for wild elephants could usually last until the sun sets.
After breakfast, it is free at leisure for any last minute souvenir shopping around the hotel/resort or taking photos, before we proceed to check out and transfer to the airport. We hope you return home with wonderful and memorable memories and visit us again.
