Really great to see the orangutangs playing and feeding, especially the babies in the outdoor nursery who were very entertaining and charming. We were a bit disappointed at the staff attitude - it felt like a bit of a conveyor belt just getting people in...More

We were so impressed with the Rehabilitation Centre. It provides an insight into the plight of these incredible animals - and the manner in which they are rehabilitated is very professional and ethical. The Park Rangers were very attentive to ensure the safety of the...More

There are several things that I wish we had known before the visit, I would like to share those for others and hopefully improve their experience. We arrived at around 07:00 hrs and eventually realised that the cafe there is open, even at that time,...More

The place provides lockers but in terms of luggage not so sure. Best to call the centre first to check. You can access the place by taxis or via the Grab App (will cost around RM20++ from town) Hope this helps :)
