Discover the best of flora and fauna at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park for an unforgettable nature experience.
Run by the Sabah Wildlife Department—which falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment—the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is a huge nature reserve that sprawls across 280 acres of land. Due to its large size, visitors are able to explore two distinct main sections.
The zoological section houses both exotic and endangered animals. Here you will find a diverse mix of fauna, from the proud Malayan tigers to the gentle Orang Utans. Look out for the Sumatran rhinoceros and Proboscis monkeys, too. There is also an area that is dedicated to the little ones, who are bound to be excited when they spot the adorable ponies and playful Borneo Pygmy elephants. Adults and children alike will also thoroughly enjoy the walk-in aviary. Visitors will be greeted by the sounds and sights of many species of birds including hornbills, eagles, egrets, parrots, mynahs and pigeons. This makes a very charming spot where you will be entertained by the colourful birds and their even more colourful characters!
The botanical component takes up about 200 acres of land and includes a paved trail that is roughly 1.4 kilometres in length. The trail will bring you to the tranquil Herbal and Ginger Garden. Besides pitcher plants (nepenthes sp) the garden also features rare flora species and sky-reaching dipterocarp trees. Take your time as you study and admire these unique but important plants.
There are several special highlights at the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. Elephant rides are available on weekends, school and public holidays while animal shows are performed six days a week—excluding Fridays, school and public holidays. There are also scheduled animal feeding sessions to take part in and a tram service that covers the whole park. The train ride requires an additional fee of RM 2 per person and departs at 10 am, 11 am, 2 pm and 3 pm.
