The Tuaran Crocodile Farm is located at Jalan Sulaman, Kampong Lok Bukit, in Tuaran, Sabah. The crocodile farm has attracted many tourists from locals with Malaysia and even, foreigners.

The farm is open to visitors from 8.30am to 5.30pm daily.

One inside, visitors would be able to experience the ethnic lifestyle staying in a longhouse made entirely from bamboo and then, amazed with the welcoming dance performance from the Kadazandusun ethnic group in Sabah.

Visitors flocking to the farm with their families would have the chance to see up close performances and tricks from the crocodiles, then visit the nearby longhouse to enjoy the dance performances. They even allowed visitors to snap pictures as a memoir.

Throughout the visit, the welcoming atmosphere from the staff to the dancers impressed the writer and this made him to wanting to return to re-visit the Tuaran Crocodile Farm in the near fututre.
