The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park covers about 280 acres of land which includes the Botanical Site. This family-oriented park features exotic and endangered species such as the Sumatran rhinoceros, the Proboscis monkeys, the Malayan tigers, the Orang Utan, the Borneo Pygmy elephants and colourful hornbill birds. On the Botanical side, visitors can walk the 1.4 km trail that leads to the Herbal and Ginger Garden to catch a glimpse of the ever famous pitcher plant (nepenthes sp) and an opportunity to examine some rare plant species up close. Some dipterocarp trees can also be found in this area.

The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park is run by Sabah Wildlife Department under the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment. The Botanical Site is managed by Sabah Forestry Department and the Zoological Site
