In the eastern part of Sabah, the reserve, privatised in 1998, spans about 122,539ha in the centre of Dent Peninsula, 48km north-east of Lahad Datu from where it is readily accessible by tarmac road. Created in 1984, Tabin has been declared a Wildlife Reserve primarily on account of the large number of animals inhabiting its forests, some of which are endangered. 
The land belongs to the people of Sabah; the Sabah Wildlife Department is the custodian of the reserve's fauna and the Sabah Forestry Department of its trees.
The largest mammals of Sabah, namely Borneo Pygmy Elephant and Banteng, are present. 6 primate species and 3 of Borneo's cat species, are also known to occur there. The bird checklist is some 220 species and the site is an IBA (Important Bird Area). The mineral-rich 'mud volcanoes' are an excellent place at which to observe mammals and birds, attracted by the mineral deposits.
