There are over 100 species of mammals and birds in the park. Many of them are native to the island of Borneo. The highlight of the park, for many at least, would be the orang utan and proboscis monkey.

Right at the end of the park is a Botanical Garden, where they have many plants and herbs planted for display. It also have a rather challenging trail, for the fitter ones. It used to be a rubber plantation, there are some rubber trees that remain.

The walking path is mostly tarred, and is relatively flat. Suitable for family outing and strollers for those who have young children.

The park is rather large, so it can easily take 2-3 hours. The walking path are mostly exposed, so it can get pretty hot on a sunny day. Remember to apply some sun block, or bring your umbrella.
