Lok Kawi Wildlife Park

Lok Kawi's menagerie includes pygmy elephants, Malayan tigers, sun bears, crocodiles, hornbills, mouse deer, gibbons, big-nosed proboscis monkeys and, of course, orang utans.

The surrounding jungle is green and dense and there's an adjacent botanic gardens (included with admission), but the setting still feels very zoo-like with some depressingly bare enclosures.

For the little ones there is elephant riding and interactive animal shows. A roundtrip taxi is about 100 ringgit including waiting time. Try to come on a weekday when it's less busy.
