A family trip to Tuaran Crocodile Farm (Taman Buaya Tuaran), Sabah

I managed to spend some quality time with my family last weekend, after 2 weeks of non-stop working. We went to Tuaran Crocodile Farm, a crocodile adventure land which situated 32km from Kota Kinabalu city center. Just want to share and show my little boy real crocodiles as compared to what he usually see in Animal Planet.

The crocodile farm is the largest crocodile farm in Sabah. It accommodates more than 1,000 crocodiles in the land below the wind. Open daily from 8.30am to 5.30pm, it is one of the place that you can bring your family for an adventure. They also have crocodile show time, twice a day from Monday to Saturday (at 11.00am and 3.00pm) and additional show at 1.00pm on Sundays. The show can be just anything from kissing the crocodiles up to boxing with them.

We arrived just half an hour before the farm closed. I only managed to go around the farm and take photos for less than 20 minutes, but it was worth the time. Enjoy the photos!

It’s a “preserved” crocodile. And no, we don’t have any relationship with Crocodile Hunter.

Few crocodiles seen in the pond. There were actually many more crocs, but I don’t think there would be any significant differences on the photo.

There’s a Murut Longhouse inside. Cultural dance is shown half an hour after every crocodile show time in here.

Bamboo House. It’s already closed when we got there.

I wonder why they put Terengganu flag up there?

  1. Nice photos…I’ve been planning to visit this farm but haven’t found the right time yet…I just want to make sure one thing, are your children is your angles or angels? and about the Terengganu flag, maybe the owner of the farm came from Terengganu?

  2. @nimrodjo: Thanks for the correction! I did not realize the mistakes as FF spell checker also did not highlight the word! About the Trengganu flag, my wife thinks the same as you also…
