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

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

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)

ACCB do wonderful work rescuing animals from illegal trade and rehabilitating them carefully before releasing them back into the wild wherever possible. The tour is extremely informative and thorough. It's great to see the amount of effort that goes into looking after these animals to bring them back to the wild.

Guided tours are conducted twice a day at 9am and 1pm from Monday to Saturday. Outside those times the entry gates are locked and unattended. So if you want to participate on a tour then you should plan to be punctual. A good variety of animals and birds to see, and the guide is very informative. A small US$3 donation... More

ACCB is an amazing place. As an animal lover who doesn't like zoos, this was perfect for me. They have many exotic and endangered animals and the work they are doing is all for a good cause. Our guide Mike was really knowledgeable and accommodating, and told us everything we needed to know about the work they are doing with... More

Fantastic tour, but don't be late. The staff are totally committed to their outstanding work and so very knowledgeable. The place is always changing so worth a return visit too.

We paid to have a tour around the conservation park (I think it was $2-3) and it was amazing! I am a zoologist so have a particular interest in animals anyway, so it was great to see the different species that you don't necessarily see in western countries. My favourite part was watching the gibbons swinging through the trees and... More
