Desa Cow Farm in Sabah

We know Desa Cow Farm offers kids and family an opportunity to feed farm animals.
What we did not know was the nice cool temperature, around 20 to 25 degrees aircon weather!

Look at the pockets of clouds floating across, and the green grassy meadow. This could be a scene out of New Zealand. Sabah? Unbelievable!

One of Sabah’s iconic bridge. Tourists will normally pass this suspension bridge at Tamparuli. Our guide told us the name came from someone who mis-heard “temporary” hee hee. Any Sabahan can verify?

Kids were curious to see cars giving way to each other on the single lane. No traffic lights 🙂

At the other end of the bridge lies a small marketplace. Visitors can buy some local produce or souvenirs.

But walk another 3 min infront and you will catch a glimpse of Mount Kinabalu!
If you are lucky, you can even see Mount KK’s peak and grandeur.

Besides enjoying the cool scenery, kids enjoyed feeding milk and grass to the cows, and ice cream for themselves.

We ended up feeding more cows and goats than expected and itinerary was delayed. Nevermind, as long as the kids are enjoying themselves 🙂

Kids disliked the cow’s long yucky tongue, too slimy and sticky haha.

The cows outdoor seem to be enjoying a better (greener) lifestyle.

Kids now understand how milk are extracted and process into ice cream 🙂

    1. Yes Michelle, there are more activities inland (paragliding, ATR, whitewater raft).
      Many folks know about Philippines (Boraqay etc) but not many venture to Sabah (Except hiking up KK)

  1. Hello.. glad I found your page for Sabah with family. Can I check where else can I go after feeding cow? Mt KK park along the way?

    1. Hi Tracy, Desa is in Kundasang, and you may refer to this map “http://sengkangbabies.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/sabah-map.jpg”
      KK park is near, and you drive about 35km to Poring Hot Spring. Try the rainforest and canopy walk and try the swimming pool (non-hotspring).
      All in our blog articles (end of page).

      cheers, Andy

      1. Thanks andy. I just realized that there is a Day4 AM and PM.
        Tot of the Canopy but dun think my 70yr old MIL can take it
