Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Penampang

Meet some of Southeast Asia's most famous creatures at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. Opened in 2007, the park focuses on both the zoological and the botanical, divided into separate areas. In the zoo, see the endangered proboscis monkeys with their huge snouts and pot-bellies--a native species found only on the island. In the botanical area, follow the 1.4 km (0.9 mi) paved jungle trail, walking through arrangements of flowering vines and surrounded by towering lime trees.

  • Orang-utans had to go see. Feeding watering from the time until the animal show was. You could take pictures with parrots the animal show was discontinued in the middle on the Pythons to get fired around, while our experience cannot be. Certainly, if less than two hours can enjoy 10 minutes. I think it means a major Charter trips or taxi transportation is not. I went in Uber. From Kota Kinabalu was 11 RM RM 18 and the airport. Or catch in the city, however, is easy, but Uber nabbed from the park that remains to be seen. Thanks to drivers who came to the mountains like that.

  • Jangan lepaskan peluang untuk mengunjungi taman haiwan ini apabila melawat negeri Sabah. Terletak di kawasan Penampang, taman ini diwujudkan dalam kawasan hutan yang masih terpelihara. Antara tarikan yang terdapat di taman ini adalah pertunjukan haiwan berjadual seperti binturung, musang, burung kakak tua dan ular sawa.
  • A good affordable place to visit and see the Proboscis monkey, Orangutan & wild animals. Worth a visit. Its possible to come with Uber/Grabcar as well.
  • Not much thing to see here.. but appreciated to see some animals show
  • Nice place to take the kiddies to. Be aware that there are no drink or food stalls inside the zoo itself. There are a lot of them outside near the car park though.
  • Just 20 minutes from the city with natural surrounding. Worth the entrance fee.
