Website says they do tours at 9am and 1pm. We called ahead since it is more than an hour away from Siem Reap and were told 9am tours were cancelled that day (Monday) Show up at 12:50pm and told we are early, so we grab an overpriced lunch next door Come back at 1:15pm and we are told we are...

We were shown around by Dan, who was very articulate and informative. We got to see the animals pretty closely and learned a lot about the native (and too often endangered) species. Please support the ACCB, as they're doing such important work!

It's a bit far out of the city but luckily the entire ride out is beautiful. The conservation is like a trip to the zoo where you actually get to learn how using animals attractions can be harmful for species. It's a great facility and with really important work.

I would highly recommend visiting this centre and learning about the great work they are doing. The centre is strongly focused towards the conservation of Cambodia's endangered species and educating people about why it's important to protect them. We had a great guide who was very informative and provided us with lots of interesting facts about the animals. Worth visiting!

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
