  • We went here as part of a package tour and quite frankly I found it very upsetting. We had been told prior to our visit that this was where orangutans were brought to recover and were then returned to...  more »
  • This Center has not much interest. We see little orangutan, they are far away, they almost do not move, no attraction to go. We were very disappointed because we did a lot of buses to get there. It really wasn't worth the detour. What was most interesting was the 10 minutes by boat.

  • There are around 20 orang utans here. Best to visit during midday and when it's not raining, otherwise you will not see the animals as they will be hiding for shelter from the rain. There's an infant care unit for baby orang utans (if you are lucky, they could be a baby orang utan in the care unit during your visit). They also have this small gift shop where all the profits from it will be used for the care of the orang utans.
  • Get experience seeing with own eyes.. feel like in jurassic park.. we are in cage... lol
  • Beautifully kept and so nice to see the OrangUtans communicating with the staff. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Must visit place. The foundation is doing a wonderful job of rearing these great primates in captivity. The resident vet is an expert in orang utan diseases. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the sanctuary if you are traveling along the north south highway.
  • Very nice place! Clean and organized!!! Animals look happy in a open area. Fences are in the perimeter of the half of the Islan for them to have space to move freely.
