Only able to see one orang utan during the 10am feeding. Saw 4 orang utans at the play area. Visitors have to keep all bags in lockers provided.

Jahhh, this was sooo great. We saw the orangutangs very close and how they help the animals to get info the Wild again. I also sponsered an orangutang because it costs alot of money to rehabilitate the animals😊

Visitors must understand that this is not a zoo, this is a place of work and rehabilitation, to help these amazing creatures return to the wild - so you can't guarantee the experience beforehand. You can't touch them, or get too close to them. You...More

The rehabilitation centre of over 44 acres lovingly trains and feeds this endangered species by their age and ability to cope by themselves before releasing them back into the forest. Visiting is only open for feeding times 10am or 3 pm.
