Tawai Rainforest Camp, Telupid

5th July 2019



On my way to Sandakan, I decided to pay a bit of more visit to the newly upgraded facilities at Tawai Rainforest Camp that is popular among the locals mainly for the river itself. It takes only 10 minutes drive from the main Kota Kinabalu-Sandakan Road onto the reserve. In 2009, I was involved with the bird survey under Heart of Borneo http://horukuru.blogspot.com/2009/08/tawai-forest-reserve-telupid.html and I was informed, in 2016, Sabah Forestry Department decided to promote this place as one of the recreation centres along the Tongod Road in the interior.

There were several birds seen and heard especially the rare Chestnut-naped Fortail hunting on the rocks along the river. Black-headed Bulbul, Little Spiderhunter and many more.




 Prices for chalets



This place is also popular for those who likes to do a bit of walking to the 2nd highest waterfall in Sabah. It takes about 30 minutes drive from the centre to the starting point then another 2 hours walked to the waterfall.  



Well maintained trail to the upper section of the river. This place is good for a bit of birding




Pool sections for visitors




Changing rooms and toilets with gazebos





I stayed here in 2009. It is way better now!




Happy birding!

Mostly the commonest species. For special ones, best if walk along the main Waterfall track that took hours to get.

Hi Jason
Can you help with some info? Do we need to apply for the entry permit + camping or chalet at TRC before we arrive or can we do it in Telupid or at the Camp?

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.

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.
