  • The place is really great for family to hike in the cooling wood. The kids also enjoy seeing how the Orang Utan sunbath, listening to the call of the night owl, and touching the rare pitcher plants.
  • A great opportunity to get close to some of Borneo's endangered animals, in a center dedicated to conserving and rehabilitating them.
  • If you are interested in viewing the wildlife of Borneo closeup then this place offers an amazing experience you will never forget. Seeing the orangutan up close is an incredible experience and the work they are doing to protect and repopulate this amazing species is very important.
  • Wild life center look like zoo, because animals are in cages.
  • the place was so nice and wonderful.especially when we go in the evening.huuhaa.
