Kiulu Jurassic Park

A brand new tourism attraction in Sabah is opening in September 2021, and it is called Jurrasic Land Kiulu, which is Southeast Asia's answer to the famous Jurassic Park.

This dino-themed family attraction will be the talk of Kota Kinabalu (or KK as it is commonly called) as it lies in the Tuaran district, which is about one hour's drive from KK city.

Jurassic Land Kiulu was conceived by three friends who envisioned a unique experience for all walks of life, including tourists.

The park will feature nine animatronic dinosaurs placed strategically around the three-acre land to aim for Jurassic Land Kiulu to become the next eco-tourism destination in Sabah.

Kiulu was selected due to the natural environment and eco-tourism opportunities which is not too far from Kota Kinabalu. And from the park, you have unobstructed views of the majestic Mount Kinabalu.

Apart from this Jurassic Park, Kiulu is quite well known for other ecotourism activities like white water rafting at Kiulu River, trekking, hiking and rural tourism activities like homestays cultural experiences.
