I have two days to update my blogs, with set of pictures and of course, to finish my story on my trip to KK. Although there’s not much to tell, but I am sure my readers are now pretty bored of the same post for many days on the front page. Now here I am, taking advantages of 3 days off to update all my blogs!
Back to my trip to Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, I took many pictures of the animals there. I’m sorry, I intentionally refused to stop by at the aviary, because Im tired of watching the same bird that we also have in Labuan Bird Park. But the other animals were awesome!
The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is run by Sabah Wildlife Department under the Ministry of Toursim, Culture and Environment. The park covers about 280 acres of land include the Botanical Site managed by Sabah Forestry Department.
At the moment, the Park has more than 100 species of mammals including birds, which are kept in captivity. On the Botanical side, there is a trail which leads t the Herbal and Ginger Garden. You may even catch a glimpse of the ever famous Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes sp.). Some introduced dipterocarp trees can also be found in this area.
Coming attractions are (now in progress) the 1.4 km forest walk, the canopy walk, mountain biking track and the observation pavilion. Have fun but remember to abide and respect the rules and regulations of the Park.
Inspired by Omar Ariffin work on Pusaka Bumi : The Legacy Of Nature, I tried all my best applying all the knowledge and my camera ability on taking pictures. Of course the result are far from Omar Ariff work, but then I know there’ll always a room for improvement!
Overall, my trip to Lok Kawi Wildlife Park was very syok! Despite the hot weather and my ultimate frustration on the camera battery life span, I enjoyed my walk in the park and the experiences.
