Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Kota Kinabalu Reviews
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. Really if u visit borneo to see the wild life and learn more this is the only place to do that.. Make sure to visit for the live shows so find out the times in advance. Thank you for the great work you guys are doing for conservation wildlife and education.
A very good place for the kids to visit. There are proboscis monkey that only found in Borneo island. The animal show at 11am is not to be missed. Not a big zoo but there are well manage and good education trip for the young. Entrance fees are reasonable. Parking is convenient and free.
Well laid out exhibits and knowledgeable zookeepers who offer a free feeding tour from around 2PM daily. The highlight was a talking mynah bird.
