Lok Kawi Wildlife Park Kota Kinabalu Reviews
Very nice and cheap zoo to see the local wildlife Jun 06, 2011
I love going to the zoo, so when there is an opportunity to go, I will go. Karena had told me that there was a zoo, about 25 kilometers from Kota Kinabalu. So we decided to go there on this day.
The location of the zoo or wildlife park, however you want to call it, is in the hills and surrounded by lots of trees and nature. The park itself is about 280acres of land, with more then 100 species of wildlife. There is also a botanical garden.
The entrance fee for malaysian citizens is 10 MYR/RM (around 2,50 euro or around 3,50 US dollars) and the price for non malaysian citizens is 20 MYR/RM (around 5 euro or around 6,50 US dollars. There is a free map available, but it isn't really necessary as the park isn't so big and the road is easy to follow.
The various species in the park are all kinds of birds like the White-bellied Sea Eagle and the Hornbill. Big cats like the Clouded Leopard and the Malayan Tiger. We also saw Orangutans, Ring Tailed Lemurs and Proboscis Monkeys (aka Dutch Monkeys), Banteng, Malayan Sun bear and the Borneo Elephant.
Because of the location, there are also plenty of beautiful flowers and trees to be found and we also saw several stray cats/kitten around. A bit of a warning because at the time I was there, a lot of sand was on the road and due to rain, it turned into mud. So do be careful when walking there.
