About The Location

About Rafflesia Information Centre (R.I.C.):

The duration of the jungle trek (from R.I.C to flower plot) varies as it depends on the flower plot visited.
As mitigation, entering the Forest Reserve (Conservation Rafflesia Plots) after 1500hrs is strictly prohibited. For those who are permitted and still within the area are required to come out of the area at 1500hrs.
Kipandi Butterfly Park is closed on every Mondays & Tuesdays.


About Kipandi Butterfly Park:

Kipandi Butterfly Park is located in Kampung Kipandi Moyog, Penampang and lies at an altitude of 700 meter a.s.l. in the heart of the Crocker range. Crocker Range hills, covered mostly with primary forest in which at least 8000 species of plants including 2500 species of trees have been recorded, is one of the most important sanctuary for the biodiversity in the world. This makes Kipandi Butterfly Park a beautiful place to explore and walk around as it will bring you back to a lost paradise with the song of cicadas and birds and fluttering butterflies sipping nectar of gorgeous flowers. Many butterflies come into the garden to suck nectar from the many flower shrubs. Over 100 species have been recorded.

Visit the Butterfly Garden for a closer look. You can enjoy the butterfly garden in which most of the rarest species are breed, like the Rajah brooks’ and golden birdwings. This activity is a part of a joint project with the Sabah Wildlife departmen,t aiming to release the butterflies in the forest for repopulation of threatened species. Since the existence of that project, several hundreds of birdwings butterflies have been released in the wild. The butterfly garden is also a good place to photograph the butterflies in their natural surroundings, as it is an enclosed garden.


Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Tambunan Rafflesia Centre & Kipandi Butterfly Park & Mahua Waterfall

  • Meet at hotel lobby. Depart to Tambunan, a district that is known for its largest Dusun population. The journey ushers you through the Crocker Range, a parade of lush scenery and spectacular vistas of the country-side.
  • A visit to the Kipandi Butterfly Park for the ultimate chance to see these rare beauties flutter before your eyes, like the Rajah Brooks and the Golden Birdwings. Also pay a visit to The Insect Museum and The Native Plants Collection Park to see some of the endangered Orchids and Pitcher Plants of Sabah.
  • Spot the notorious Rafflesia in its gargantuan bloom, at the Tambunan Rafflesia Information Centre.
  • For all your informational needs, a ranger will be at your side to fill you in on all the interesting facts and details of the terrain and location of the Rafflesia. This includes a jungle-trek along the forest trail to spot the Rafflesia. Some trails may consider a fair amount of walking as the plot section isn’t predictable.
  • With sporadic blooming periods and unpredictable flowering patterns, it’s best if you give STB (Sabah Tourism Board) a call for information and to avoid any disappointment. Continue journey to the Rafflesia Information Centre, where you will meet the ranger that will guide through the jungle trails in search of the celebrated Rafflesia in its gargantuan bloom
  • Lunch in the great outdoors.
  • It doesn’t stop there, a Waterfall by the name of Mahua awaits in Tambunan, which is 55 minutes away from the Rafflesia Centre. The refreshing Waterfall will feel very well-deserving after a 500m trek, plus, you wouldn’t want to miss the magnificent view.
  • After a great day of exploration, depart back for Kota Kinabalu to your respective hotel.
