Located at Kuala Langat distric, around 50 Km drive from Kuala Lumpur, near Dengkil and lies adjacent to Putrajaya. This 3,100 hectares of wetlands encompasses an ex-tin mining land and peat swamp forest.
It is easily located, just turn in when you see this huge sign.
My brother and sister, Neo and Tina drove us here for a visit.
Make sure you come on time else you have to wait outside.
We managed to see some crocodiles after the cleaners taught us the way to attract the crocodiles. It is a call that the keepers always use as a behavioral call for feeding. According to the cleaners, the crocodiles only fed once a week. Therefore, they act fast to the calls.
Hippos quickly walk towards the feeding door/gate once they saw us. They seemed to think that they were going to be fed. Waited in front of the door/ gate with its head lied on the floor for few minutes and went back to their lake with disappointment - That's what I felt.After visited the hippos here, I think I agreed with the cleaners - animals are underfed here. Not sure whether it is just a gimmick or a fact but it all depends on your own judgement when you pay a visit there.
Sad and slowly they dived into the lake again but still waiting...and peeping...
