Welcome to Langkawi WildLife Park
“Warmest Greetings from Langkawi WildLife Park!”
Langkawi is Malaysia’s fable “Island of Legends” recently dubbed The Jewel of Kedah State by the Sultan himself because of it unique 99 magical islands with beaches to choose from the public Cenang to the reclusive Datai beach. Hidden away beaches you must take an adventures boat ride.
5 years a go yet another unique tourist attraction sprang up, the Langkawi WildLife Park was open to visitors officiated by the honorable Chief Minister of Kedah, Y.A.B. Dato’ Seri Syed Razak Syed Zain on 24 December 2002. Touted as Asia’s First Fully Covered WildLife Park, visitors can leisurely walk along roof covering walkways – entirely till the shopping outlets, 365 days Rain or Shines we are sheltered.
We also had our former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamad with wife gracing our place on the 24 January 2004. Fascinated with the Bird of Prey on his arm with cameras clicking away with out fear what so ever as the White Bellied Sea Eagle is as tame as a domestic pet and only weighs 1.5 kg.
Set on a 23,000 sqm (5.5 acres) of land along Jalan Ayer Hangat, is just a 10-minute drive from Kuah Town (8.5 km) and mere 1/2 an hour travel from the Langkawi International Airport (30 km). Come and discover the world of wildlife with natural rain forest setting and quite relaxing really. With the hundreds our planet’s rarest and most beautiful feathered & furry creatures greeting its visitors when one stroll through tropical landscape gardens, depicting over 150 different species from a round the globe namely South East Asia, South America, Africa, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Russia, China and homeland Malaysia.
Our most honored GUEST came unofficially, the present Sultan of Kedah – KEBAWAH DULI YANG MAHA MULIA TUANKU ALHAJ ADDUL HALIM MU’ADZAM SHAH IBNI ALMARHUM SULTAN BADLISHAH on 10 February 2007, as an animal lover His Highness made known of it with His Highness gentle touch & affection given to them through out his tenure thus far. The love birds or budgerigars came in the droves to hand on his soft palm feeding away mullet seeds (sambau) followed by the excited KEBAWAH DYMM SULTANAH HAJJAH HAMINAH (Queen) too offered the little birds her royal palm. His Highness came very close to the 8 foot Ostriches; however they are only interested in the shredded cabbages & greens for a tea break snack. The cute mouse-deer’s is His Majesty’s favorite creature accepting cherry tomatoes & long beans offerings, & just another small information, it is a Goat’s family species plus unusually can conceive again just after 45 minutes of giving birth to a fully developed fawn?
The WildLife Park exhibits are actually designed to closely resemble nature’s habitat especially for bird watching plus a place to escape from an urban life style & unwind with ease. Just sit next to the Walk in Aviary’s 15 meter man-made waterfall and take in fresh green ions for a relaxing equatorial setting watching the ducks clean their feathers & Uganda’s National bird – the Crown Crane display its hue of magnificent.

We do not really have many exotic species as they are taken from the wild unwillingly hence presently relying on the common ones that are more economically sustainable. Used to buy from legal suppliers again its debatable.
at every enclosure has informative signage in English & huge framed posters of in-depth picture explanations. Feed them with fresh fruits, seeds, vegetable and provided by us at a small token of RM 2.00 for 3 items. Potato chip and junk food is not too healthy so we discourage the bringing in of such products.
Children will want to see and touch them so that is the idea, get them to learn real time. Adult will still get to savor the surrounding landscape and surprisingly find out there is more than image, have some laughter, enjoy stress free ambiance and sample the dragon fruits…
Get the pores agitated as the serpent slides over your body and hairs on ends. Cuddle the lovely soft bunnies, feel the little finger of primates. Have a moment with king of the sky plus share a close up photo with it to take back and show your friends. Meet the tallest bird in the world you have ever seen but behind the railing as it has a pretty strong front kick. Feed Donald ducklings your hands so… so… so… ticklish…..
