KK Diaries Part 3: Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Sabah Malaysia

I haven't been to a wildlife park in a long time, so I was looking forward to spending a day at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park. I had planned to visit the wildlife park in my previous trip, but time hadn't allowed me to do so. The day of our visit was sunny, but not too warm - brilliant weather for a day at a wildlife park. Although the wildlife park was relatively small, it had a nice atmosphere to it, and I would recommend it to anyone upon visiting Sabah, Malaysia. Being someone who once aspired to be a zookeeper, I really had a wonderful time.




I was delighted by the orangutans, parrots and other wonderful creatures at the wildlife park show, which runs daily, every morning. And let me tell you, the stars sure put on a good show.







Although the photos do not do justice of the talent of the animals at the show, they really did put on a great show. I have recorded footage of this and am working on putting them together now to share them with you.




The proboscis monkey has never ceased to amuse me.




My first encounter with a baby proboscis monkey, and boy, is it a quick moving creature. The eyes tell it all.

 


This photo of the tigers being intimate with each other is not only one of the most memorable moments during my trip, it paints the nature of the three weeks I spent in Sabah, Malaysia. Looking back at these photos, it reminds me of the amazing time I had. I got to meet an adorable distant nephew who never stops smiling and laughing, spent more time than I could imagine with my nephew and was touched by those who took days off just to spend time with me.

It was incredibly endearing. I had absolutely no plans at all when I arrived in Sabah, but looking back now, nothing could've gone as well planned as these three weeks have.
