"An amazing wildlife experience in tranquil surroundings, a great place to stay and a great base for touring the jungle!" - Trip Advisor


Our forest restoration project began in 2011 after a series of training, research and trial planting that was conducted with close guidance from MESCOT, NGO's and financial support received from local and international foundations. Critical financial support was received from the GEF SGP Malaysia and Shell Malaysia to implement the restoration of 10 hectares of degraded forest areas along the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary of Lot 1 & 2.

To date, we have planted more than 25,000 trees of various species mainly pioneer species including species that serves a food source for orang utans, birds and other wildlife. This project is a long term commitment to restore canopy in areas that was selectively logged in the past and areas degraded by immense forest fires during the long droughts in 1997.

Abai Community Tree Nurseries

Abai is one of four villages in the Lower Kinabatangan to have participated in WWF-Malaysia's Komuniti Anak Pokok Kinabatangan' project (Community tree seedlings Kinabatangan). Abai has the capacity to produce 30,000 seedlings per year to supplement its own forest restoration activity and meet demand from outside. 26 families own a small nursery at their homes that plays a critical part in our program. From every tourist visit, some of the revenue generated brings direct benefit to our nursery members in the village.

How to Help

The best and simplest way to support us is by visiting our program. We would love to host your visit as a volunteer, school group, educational program, or as a regular tourist. The eco-tourism program is a core element in the continued development of our restoration work. Some of the revenue generated from your visit will be allocated to restoration work and will also directly fund volunteer and research projects. Tourists will also see that the money they pay for their activities helps fund equipment, boats and overall management of the forest restoration work. Visitors to Abai allow the entire program to function sustainably, ultimately protecting the surrounding habitat, wildlife, and our way of life.

Moido Waloi Homestay

Moido Waloi Homestay Abai lies closest to the mouth of the Kinabatangan River - a picturesque village of about forty houses and a grand population of a hundred people. Every home has a view of the river, with the exception of one which, because it sits on an elbow, has the river on both sides of it.
