We spent 3 days in Tabin which we booked through Amazing Borneo Tours and it was an amazing experience. Tabin is the size of Singapore and it's the jungle not a zoo so you're not guaranteed to see any animals but we were really lucky. Keep your eyes open at all times - we walked out of our room on the final day and it was only because I turned around that we spotted an entire family of monkeys playing about 5 metres away!
If you stay for 2 nights you get a fantastic itinerary which is amazing value for money. It includes your own personal guide during your visit and I can truly say that we wouldn't have spotted even 1/3rd of the animals we did see without Maldin - he was brilliant. You do need to be patient and trust that your guide will find the animals if they're there. During our stay we saw eagles, three types of hornbill, long tailed macaque, pig tailed macaque, borneon gibbon, red giant flying squirrels, leopard cats, two herds of pygmy elephants, bearded pig, ysamber deer, monitor lizards and the poisonour rock frog! On our first afternoon we did a short walk through the jungle to the mud volcano, at night we did a safari drive, the following morning we did the optional early morning walk (it shouldn't be optional because we saw the most animals on this walk and it was definitely worth getting up for), then we went to the Lipad waterfall which was relaxing, had the complimentary foot soak, before a dusk safari drive. We skipped the optional night walk because I'm terrified of snakes!
The lodges at Tabin are clean and simple, with everything you need including air conditioning and hot water. The food was good but make sure you're hungry because there's always plenty of it - you get served a selection of dishes for each meal.
Overall Tabin was a great experience.
