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.

Lok Kawi Wildlife Park reviews
Really worth a visit. Half a day is all you need. Kids enjoyed the interactive animal show. Would recommend if you have time. Book a car as I hear Grab drivers don’t visit for a pickup.

It's a place for family sightseeing. Got theater and it's a nice show with parrots, snakes etc. Not many animals but each section got a lot of information for kids to learn.

Despite the mixed reviews my family and I decided to visit this place on our trip to Kota Kinabalu. It was indeed a good decision. Well kept place with affordable entrance fee. Entertaining animal show from the staff for children and adults. The show starts at 11.15am and takes around 30 minutes or so. My niece enjoying her time watching Borneo Elephant as elephants are her favorite animal. We spent around 3 hours there covering the place slowly. It was a nice and pleasant experience. Recommended place to go with children if u happened to be in the area
About 20 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu city. Entrance fee is rm10 for local and rm20 for foreigner. Please wear shoe with good sole grip as the walkway is slippery due to moss formation. Toilet before the entrance is dark. Some of the animal are nowhere to be seen during our visit. But the show is fun and informative. This place need serious upgrade.
It's good to bring our child to learn more about living animal. But these zoo was really old n more damages, looking that the place need to repair. Because it covid things their fund decreased. So, people let's us give more to help our animals survive and their home nice to live. Support more and every cents really meaningful.
A fun day at the wildlife park. The park is well laid out to visit everything and you can easily see all the animals. They have good viewing stations and lots of places to sit and rest. Excellent for taking pictures and videos of the animals. They have food and gift places, local cash only. They also have local music and a grand show to sit and enjoy.
If you plan to go here make sure bring this item :- 1. Selfie stick (so you can take picture with family) 2. An umbrella (it's hot on sunny day) 3. Water/ some snacks ( it took a long walk ) 4. Stroller (if you have baby or toddler) 5. Optional (it is the best to get a guide from someone who knew about the animals because it won't be a boring trip if they explain it to you, learning about the animals is fun for kids and it will also educate the adults) Some of the animal section were closed for the time being, this place need to go under maintenance. The glass need to be clean so the visitor can get a clear view.
