Lok Kwai Wildlife Park is easy to get to from Kota Kinabalu. Taxis are 140 ringet round trip plus 50 ringet per hour while they wait in the Park's car park and you visit the Park. The Park has all of the key Bornean wildlife...More

It is a good place to bring your kids but sadly, the place is not really well maintain. They only left with little animals to see - orang utan, proboscis, etc...you only need few hours there is more than enough.

We visited on an extremely hot and humid afternoon. The animal confines are very poor. Two Sun Bears in a concrete lined cage which reflected the heat, with no grass or trees, and nothing to amuse the animals who were just pacing around their enclosure....More

The show involves some macaws, civet and snake. Two shows in a day, i can't be sure of the show timing in the morning, if I remember correctly, it is around 10-11am, in the afternoon it is at 3.15pm.
