This is a rehabilitation center/sanctuary for orphaned orangutan. Their natural habitat is also getting smaller due to the Palm Oil plantations. These animals are raised until they are ready to return to the wild. There is a nursery area that visitors can watch behind glass...More

This is a rehabilitation centre not a zoo and this should already convince people to visit it! Orangs are rescued from captivity or bad situation and rehabilitated for living in the wild. The park is hudge and orangs can go around and enjoy the forest....More

From start to finish this is a great experience and a must see. The sanctuary is set in the jungle and you can see baby orangutans at the nursery where they learn the skills required right the way through to a feeding platform where more...More
