Offers canopy walks during the day and evening. The wait and watch night time event is fun. The views from the summit is amazing.

Great place to see Orangutans that have been saved from fires, deforestation etc. These animals are special and need to be saved! You might even get to touch one if you are lucky!

Loved this trip which I thought was very good value considering it consisted of flights, transfers, visits to Orang Utans ,Sun bears (don't miss them) , monkeys and lunch. It was the highlight of our trip and seeing orang utans free and, on 2 occasions just an arms length away was really moving. The nursery was very funny as you... More

Although I had to complain about the Chinese, the Hotel itself is fabulous. Garden Wing deluxe room, spotless, free water, much as you like. Fruit at Breakfast is amazing. Today we had Breakfast in Room, fantastic spread and cheaper too! This really is a beautiful Hotel, a little expensive for Malaysia, but it is 5 Star so you get what... More

Try not to book with your tour operator as internal flights are cheap and transport is easily arranged.

Highly recommended, you are able to get up close and personal with orangutans in their natural environment. Our kids got to be rangers for the day and helped prepare food and feed the orangutans. They absolutely enjoyed the experience.

Unfortunately, the canopy walk was closed, but we still had an informative walk around for two hours, seeing various birds, including Hornbills and some Macaques and a deadly Viper. Well worth it.

Spent about 20 mins walking up the hill for a nice view and a continental breakfast. It's a really good exercise, yet need to have a good hiking shoes especially if it rains the night before. The walkway could be really slippery; a walking cane will help for those who don't use to exercise
