More projects are planned for the summer for the wildlife education area and then we are looking to open this up for our customers to discover it and our wildlife reserve by themselves … Tampat do Aman….. cooking on gas !

Making a Difference

At the start of May Tampat Do Aman invited SPCA of Kota Kinabalu to come and give a talk to the locals on the importance of looking aftyer thier pets , this after seeing a lot of suffering by the local cat and dog population . The idea was that an “outsider” could help to educate them on the importance of neutering to control the populations , which seem to be getting out of control , 30 + localsturned up to the tampatdoaman sponsored event and it was very well received , as a knock effect Tampatdoaman Kudat-SabahBorneo has plegded RM 1000 to I – paw to come and undertake a catch , neauter and release program , all in an effort to reduce the suffering of the local dog and cat poulation ….

Tampat do Aman is very great-full to present Tip of Borneo. We have two facilities to help you to discover this beautiful coastline.  Our Tip Top restaurant situated at the entrance of the road going to the tip and our Jungle Camp consist of Backpackers Longhous, Small Huts and Private chalets are ready to accommodate you!

Read some fact about Tip of Borneo here.

This dramatic headland is situated in the northern-most tip of BORNEO, the third largest island in the world, after Greenland and New Guinea. It is located in the Kudat Peninsula, about three and a half hours (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu City.

Simpang Mengayau means ‘lingering junction’ as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east … Enjoy the stunning view. The sunsets and full moons are just beautiful … The Pulau Kalampunian lighthouse is a reminder of treacherous coastline and past shipwrecks. On the left is the beautiful beach of Pantai Kalampunian.

It’s a lovely easy stroll to the flagpole, the Globe and the rocky outcrop that forms the “Tip of Borneo”.
