We were the only guests in the wake of the lifting of the lockdown on domestic tourism in Malaysia. Sounding 3 days here was perfect to enjoy the wildlife- our guide, Maldin, was an expert spotter and we saw so much on every walk/drive, including a wild orangutan. The food was plentiful and the hill lodge cabin very comfortable. All the staff were so friendly. I hope more guests will visit over the coming months. This is a great resort which needs to be supported by tourists so they can enjoy the resort and park as well while sustaining the Sabah economy.

First of we want to say a very big thank you to Edd and Lynn. On the day we were due to check out we found out that our next Hotel was not excepting guests as it had gone into shut down due to the Corona virus. Edd & lynn helped us out with sorting out flights home. Everything here was fantastic our room the staff the wildlife. We preferred going out in the trucks wildlife spotting as we felt we seen more than on the walks as we had to concentrate on the ground making sure we didn't trip on the vines and you are more enclosed it seemed harder to spot wildlife due to the visibility but we did feel very exhilarated after the walks.

A very peaceful and relaxing place where all employees do everything, so we can feel comfortable. Food very good and sometimes too much. A special thanks for our guide Olivier for his knowledge, answering every our question, searching and showing all creatures, and above all for his smile and fun during ours activities.

We called to Tabins office and asked if last minute booking is possible straight from their Lahad Datu's office, when we arrive there. Woman at the phone said it is possible and presented price to us. When we arrived to Lahad Datu, there was a woman at their official airport office, who said it is not possible to make last minute booking, but for a next day it would be possible. Ok, we agreed to that. But now price was raised, and same package was more expensive than what they said at the phone. This smelled like a scam, and we decided to leave somewhere else. We are not budget travelers, but don't want to get scammed either. This kind of things give bad impression of the resort.
