Buffalo Park

Our rating:

Buffalo Park allows visitors the opportunity to witness the business of raising water buffalo. With more than 100 murrah and swamp buffalo calling the park home, everything you could possibly want to know about water buffalo is yours for the bargain basement entry price of just five ringgit per adult and three ringgit per child.

Opening their barn doors in 2007, the small family-run operation starts the day with feeding and milking — if you arrive during the morning milking ritual they will let you try your own hand at it. Although the milking is usually done by machine, visitors get to try the manual version. It can be quite the challenge for first timers.

Only one Buffalo is milked at a time.

Buffalo Park processes its products on site. You can sample a tasty glass of fresh buffalo milk straight from the source or try their products, mozzarella, ricotta, yogurt drinks or ice cream, all made from fresh buffalo milk. They also grow and harvest their own hay to help feed all those hungry mouths.

Although the processing, packaging and selling of buffalo dairy products is their main source of income, the park also offers visitors the chance to ride a buffalo or take a spin in a traditional buffalo-drawn cart or sled (anok) for 25 to 35 ringgit.

Located in the foothills just outside of Padang Mat Sirat amid open fields and rubber tree plantations, the short journey to get to the park is alone well worth taking, as the surrounding area is picturesque — this is a great motorbike or cycling destination. It is also about a 15-minute drive from the airport, so a good spot for kids to run off a little energy before a long flight.
