1. Lok Kawi Wildlife Park
Located 30 minutes south of Kota Kinabalu by bus, Lok Kawi is a wildlife rehabilitation center stocked with some of Borneo’s most fascinating animals. Tigers, elephants, orangutans, proboscis monkeys, and other endangered species can be viewed.
If crossing Sabah to view wildlife near Sandakan isn’t an option, Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is certainly the best place to find many of Borneo’s unique species.
Getting There: Getting to Lok Kawi requires two steps. First, take southbound bus #17 from Kota Kinabalu to the town of Lok Kawi; the trip takes around 30 minutes and costs $1. Next, take a 10-minute taxi from Lok Kawi to the wildlife park for around $5.
Give Bear Grylls 10 years in Borneo and he’d barely scratch the surface. So your average podgy Brit on his annual two-week break doesn’t stand a chance.

My fiancee and I visited Borneo’s two Malaysian states, Sabah and Sarawak. First things first, we could not recommend the place more highly, with its perfect beaches, untouched jungle and endless outdoor activities.
We started by flying from Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah – the province covering Borneo’s northeast tip.
