Overview
More
The Gibbon Conservation Center is home to more than 40 highly endangered gibbon apes (small apes). This peaceful location is where gibbons live in family groups, raise their infants and socialize as they would in the wild. A guided tour is given at 10:00 a.m. on weekends, when they are open to the public between 9:30 a.m. and noon. Wonderful photo opportunities and a chance to watch gibbons swing from branch to branch and hear them sing their melodic songs. There is a gift shop on site. Private and school tours are available on weekdays.

This small facility is quite interesting. The tour is optional and free, but well worth the price of admission. There is a lot to know about gibbons in general and, more specifically, the gibbons who live here. We really enjoyed the wild and loud "singing"...More

The Gibbon conservation center is an excellent place to visit and take your family. If you can go for the breakfast with the Gibbons it is terrific....well worth your time and money.

Even though it's small, it's so lovely. Our tour guide was sweet and very informative. My son loved the apes and at the end of tour the apes start to sing and it's amazing!!

I believe they are only open Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am to noon. Tours are given at 10 am. Shortly after we began our tour, the gibbons began their call to mark their territory. The calls can be heard from two miles away and...More

This is a wonderful, up-close opportunity to see these amazing apes. One man's vision has allowed us to see and understand Gibbons--a very interesting ape.
