The 'rehabilitation ideal' was the reason to visit; imagine a zoo without a rear property fence. Once the orangs are raised and/or rehabilitated they are free to return to the wild. While this creates a problem for the viewing visitors, the center also serves as...More

What an amazing day, I would highly recommend planning the trip yourself as it is easy and cost effective. It cost us around £20 each for cabs and entry to see the Orangutans and Sun Bears. We booked flights with Malaysia Airlines which were £63...More

Both Sun bear and Orangutan sanctuary visited as next door to each other. Sun bears amazing! Saw lots of bears climbing and playing around. Orangutans disappointing as very few come out to be seen especially if it rains they stay under cover. Went to both...More

This is one of the main reasons why I came to Malaysia. Maybe because it is bad timing. It is the fruiting season. Which means that there are plenty of fruits they dont need to depend on the food at the feeding station. Each time...More

Really enjoyed visiting this Center. The staff are dedicated to helping the young orangutans and it is heartening to know someone is doing something to protect these endangered animals. Loved our visit there.

We visited just as the dusk was falling. Exceptional guide and exquisite sights and sounds. I would thoroughly recommend this as the day tours are a lot busier

Yes it is 10rm extra for your phone or camera in most places. Some don’t charge if it is a phone only but be prepared to include 10 RM on top of your entry fee.
