Silam Coast, Semporna and Maliau Basin Trip

19-27th March 2019

8 days trips on the East Coast of Sabah started in Lahad Datu town, the main gateway for visitors to Tabin Wildlife Reserve and Danum Valley. I went to Silam Coast mainly for the White-vented Whistler and also Black-naped Fruit-Dove, but unfortunately, no birds were seen there. Then up to Semporna town around 2 hours drive mainly for the Bohey Dulang, Tatagan, Mantabuan and Sibuan Island. The trip ended for a few days at Maliau Basin. Total distance in kilometres is around 950km loop via Tawau Kalabakan Keningau road.

Tatangan Island with the Bajau Palao aka Sea Gypsies

On top of Bohey Dulang Island at Semporna! The hike was around 45 minutes in a 700m long from the base. Tour operator such as Pakej Budak Merah for the trip is highly recommended. RM 150 (malaysian and additional RM 30 for non malaysian) for 4 island hopping including permit, snorkeling gears and lunch 

Great view of the Mantabuan Island which is famous for visitors

They are well socialized, having been raised in our home as members of our
own family in order for them to become ready to be a member of yours.
They are quite comfortable around all ages, including the elderly and young children.
When you purchase a bird from Us, we are committed to offering lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

Hand Raised Parrots for Sale, Macaw Parrots for Sale
Macaws are playful and active and they have excited personalities to go along with their sizes.
But this also makes them very challenging pets. They do have the ability to say words and mimic
our speech but it is not as clear as some other pet bird species.
Because they are so intelligent, macaws can be trained. You can start when your pet bird is young,
and work on hand-feeding, teaching your bird to talk or sing, and training your macaw not to nip, bite, or scream.
