The less-trawled cor­ner of Tabin Wildlife Re­serve in south­east Sabah packs an ad­ven­tur­ous punch of misty canals, mys­te­ri­ous thick­ets and ex­cit­ing wildlife en­coun­ters. La­had Datu–based op­er­a­tor Bike & Tours, a pi­o­neer in boat­ing and hik­ing pack­ages up the bends of re­mote Ka­pur River, has launched a new three-day ad­ven­ture tour to ex­plore the crea­tures of the wa­ter.

Based in the jun­gle-im­mersed rain for­est rest­house, guests will go on daily sun­rise and sun­set river cruises: at dawn, glide on a long­tail boat in search of king­fish­ers, storks, pro­boscis mon­keys and rare horn­bills as they for­age the vir­gin man­groves and Ni­pah for­est; at dusk, bask in the glo­ri­ous pink sun­set un­til hun­dreds of fire­flies and a man­tle of blaz­ing stars light up the night. The fun doesn't end on the wa­ter, hike through the hard­wood for­est in Pokok Ka­pur, and join the evening jun­gle sa­fari by four-wheel drive. If you're lucky, you'll even spot the elu­sive slow loris. bike­and­tours.com; three-day Sun­gai Ka­pur Ex­pe­di­tion from RM2,500 per per­son, per dou­ble. — MARCO FERRARESE
