Lok Kawi Wildlife Park
Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is situated along the Penampang-Papar Road in outer Kota Kinabalu and offers visitors the chance to see Borneo’s wildlife up close. Although it may not be the same as seeing the animals in their natural habitat, the park is essentially set in the wilderness. Positioned around 25 kilometres out of Kota Kinabalu, Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is a both a zoo and botanical gardens. Spread over 280 acres of land, it was developed and is run by the Sabah Wildlife and Forestry Departments.
The animals at the park are split into three main habitat areas. The orang-utans, bats, snakes and eagles live in the forest canopy zone while large animals such as sun bears and elephants are put in the forest floor zone. Gibbons, turtles, crocodiles and proboscis monkeys can all be found at the water edge enclosures.
Other animals that can be seen at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park include tigers, mouse deer, barking deer, ostriches, a range of birds and a Sumatran rhinoceros. The exotic clouded leopard is one of the first attractions at the park. Even when sleeping, this majestic animal manages to pull an attentive crowd.
Borneo really is one of the most diverse and interesting places to visit – stunning wildlife, exceptional scenery and well preserved national parks make it one of the top spots for travellers from all walks of life.
