The center is located an hour and a half from siem reap and you have to be on time. We sent the center a mail ahead of time to let them know that we are coming. We recommending to do so because if you come and it's closed it's disappointing. We were alone so we got a private tour which... More

I'm a conservationist so for me this was a no brainer. That being said, it is an excellent opportunity to learn about Cambodian wildlife and the troubles they face, like the illegal pet trade. Excellent signage in Khmer and English, great educational materials and it's right next to Kabal Spean and wonderful restaurants. Not open to the public so make... More

We hiked up to the waterfall at Kbal Spean in the morning and rushed down to get to the ACCB at 1 pm. We barely made it but we did! Besides us there was only one other couple on our tour. We had a very lovely, very educated guide who really cared about his country and the wildlife therein. We... More

The ACCB is doing an exceptional job at rescuing, housing and rehabilitating a variety of species with the resources that they currently have at their disposal. Of course there is always room for improvement in the animals' living conditions (space etc.) but I admit to being quite critical on this front (I'm studying to be a zoologist). The tour was... More

We never got to visit here but the 2 hour tuk-tuk trip to get there. It was a Sunday and we got there in time for the 1pm tour however sign on the gate saying 'closed today'. We were told that it was not very busy at the moment so it was decided not to open.... Long way out but... More

We are very sorry you missed the opportunity to explore ACCB with one of our guides. Unfortunately we are always closed to the public on Sundays. We currently have 2 tour times available, 9AM and 1PM, and these are only available Monday-Saturday. We also encourage everyone to give us a call ahead of time to book your spot and assure... More

This place is good to see the rescued wildlife before being released back into the wild. Was a short and sweet tour with plenty of information to take in.

Visited here after learning about the centre on tripadvisor. As all the reviews state, don't be late. The gates opened at 12:55 and shut again at 13:00. Some people came to the gate at 13:20 but they weren't let in. The tour was very informative and our guide (Jake) spoke very good English and was clearly very passionate about the... More

Thanks very much for your feedback, and yes you are right! It is very important to assure you arrive on time. Once our tour leaves the main gate we cannot leave visitors unaccompanied to allow late-comers in, and it disrupts the tour for those who are on time. You can always give us a call if you are running late... More

Worth a visit if you're into animal conservation. The tour was probably a bit long given the amount of animals there, which may have been enhanced if we got one of the native English speaking guides (ours was Cambodian and while he was informative and passionate was a little hard to understand)
