Probably the best tourist spot in Ranau

No way you can reach there without a car. Entrance fees is RM5 per pax. Some claimed it is a little New Zealand, but I think the view/scenery and the most important the feeling... read more

Morning is the best time for visitor to take photo as the sky won't fully covered by fog and the mountain is visible. Hopefully the weather is good during your trip to Desa Dairy Farm which give full mark in your travel experience. Feeding the cow and goat is the best part in the trip, just don't miss it once...

No way you can reach there without a car. Entrance fees is RM5 per pax. Some claimed it is a little New Zealand, but I think the view/scenery and the most important the feeling, they are far behind the quality you could get in New Zealand. Nevertheless, it is still worth the price to visit. The farm open at 8am,... More

Visiting during peak season... More

If you are lucky you will get a hungry cattle where you can keep feeding those adorable creatures. We also get to try... More

We arrived at Desa Dairy Farm early in the morning around 7am to have the best view of Mount Kinabalu. The greenery scene was amazing with cows, it feels like you are in New Zealand. (I've never been to NZ, but that was all people are telling). The farm opens early and we can walk around. They sell fresh milk... More

Management is not very friendly. We had a school group that wanted to have a tour of the venue and contacted the organization three months in advance. Got a letter saying not possible. Called the Desa Cattle and could not speak to the person in charge (Angeline Soh) who is the CEO of the organization. Instead got referred to someone... More

Perfect place for relax and ...yeah...Mini New Zealand. The scenery is beautiful and taking photos with the black&white cows behind is awesome. Visitors get to feed the calf and billy goat with a small fees. Too bad we are unable to see the milking process. The management can improve by showing the time for milking or probably a video room... More

This place used to be great to visit back then when there was not much visitor. Now that the company decided to fully market themself to the public. They were not able to cater to the sudden influx of visitor during the weekend. Worst of all, parking management was horrible. Everyone's car was bumper to bumper and it took everyone... More
