Amazing experience to see these beautiful creatures in their natural environment. It does get rather crowded so get there early, and wear good footwear (slippery surfaces) and use insect repellent. A long lens would be beneficial when seeing the orangutans in the wild to get...More

It is wonderful to see institutions like this make the effort to conserve wildlife in its natural state. You are able to see the orangutans and gibbons traverse down ropes from the jungle to a feeding platform. The trick is to catch them at the...More

Take time to explore and hang out on the boardwalk trails before and after feeding times. You never know how much you'll see. While I was there for a 10 a.m. feeding, there were no orang utans at that time (good that they are foraging...More

you don't need to do an organised tour there is a clear walk way around and there are employees who can answer any questions you may have. Don't forget to walk across the car park to the sun bear center as well
