I work with animals, and normally I'm disappointed to see the conditions in which the animals live at rescue centers. But not this time. Great work are put in to this place. Most visitors to the Angkor Way area never find their way to this place and that is a great shame.

My family and I visited from Siem Reap just to see the ACCB, though it can be combined with a hike up the hill just next to it (the area's more popular attraction). We were guided around by Daniel who had animal experience from around the world yet was also very knowledgeable about the environmental and social issues in Cambodia.... More

An abundant place with helpers from everywhere the world doing great work with saved native animals from edge control, markets and pets. Breeding and issue programs. Some capital from the Russians. Donations gratefully accepted.

If you care at least a bit about wild animals you should go there to support this great project, and if you don't you should go as well to learn a lesson. You will learn the history of the animals you see and more about those you can't see any more because they got back where they belong - into... More

This is a very important and interesting project. ACCB works on conservation of endangered species and rehabilitation of domesticated wild animals which are then returned into the wild if possible. Our guide, Chhunheang, lead an informative tour and answered any questions we had. We were told a little about each animal we passed, how they got to the center and... More

If you are interested in hearing and seeing some positive things about animal conservation in Cambodia, this place is worth a visit. You arrive at 1pm and you are given a behind the scene tour, seeing lots of endangered animals as you go. The approach taken by this place, with educating the locals on conservation through local monks who are... More

Very informative tour. The guides know a lot so ask them lots of questions. Kbal Spean carvings are right next door. Only climb the 2km up a mountain if you have energy to burn before the tour. If you do it before the tour like we did, you will be very exhausted. Also arrive before 1.

We were heartened by the dedicated staff and uplifted by the living results. Our guide was very knowledgeable and tested us few times to make sure we understood his talks. The work being done to support endangered species is admirable and wehope they receive deserved funding.

The work they do is not only important for the animals in need but also to get the message across to the locals... Our guides were very shy because of their level of English. With a bit of patience they will happily give you a lot of extra information. The guided tour is at 1 pm and that's the only... More
