  • Good place to view animals and to educate children about protecting the environment and wildlife. There's also a botanical garden in the area. The park is well laid out. Can't say I noticed if there were facilities for the disabled but it's easy to navigate.
  • A must see if u visit borneo.. I been here twice and will go again when I get the chance. Great facilities and a unique experience.

Thank you for the great work you guys are doing for conservation wildlife and education.
