Arnab (translated from the Malay Language, which means Rabbit) Village is considered a new place of attraction in Ranau, Sabah, Borneo. Apart from that, it is the biggest Rabbit Park, as well as the first one in Sabah, Borneo. It started in 2015, when the owner, Mr. Jubair, started it as a hobby with only two rabbits and he did not expect to open an Arnab Village until it went viral through the social media. As a result, the response from locals were so great that he became an overnight sensation and upgrading his space for more of these furry animals to live in. Now, he has about 400 rabbits in the park and it has been opened to the public ever since last year.
The Arnab Village is not far from Ranau Village, but the road accessing it is a bit bumpy, so best to use a 4 wheeler when getting there. I was lucky to visit the place once, where the ride itself was like a roller coaster getting into the Arnab Village! But it was worth it. It is best to go during the day when it is not over-crowded, as a lot of locals from near and far tend to bring their families there to visit these furry creatures.
If you’re an animal lover, you will definitely enjoy this place as the animals are so warm and cuddly! But do be nice to them though, as they are animals with feelings and not a toy. Rabbits are furry and fragile creatures that need great attention and love. Apart from that, you also have a chance to feed them and see them eating straight out of your hands! So don’t forget to purchase food for the rabbits there, so you can feed the rabbit right from your hands!
