The ACCB is home to a collection of animals that have been saved from poaching and trafficking. It is not a zoo but a safe haven for wild animals that have been abused,injured, or confiscated from poachers. The aim of the facility is to rehabilitate these animals with the intention of releasing them back into the wild. The ACCB also... More

The tour through the centre gives you a good idea what native animals there are and in what trouble they are at. The centre gives a clear view and works for a good cause. Definately worth a visit!

Conservation of the environment - both wild animals and the jungles they live in - does not seem to be high on the list of important things in Cambodia. This place, funded by a German Zoo does great work and is really worth a visit for the informative tour as well as your support as every little bit will help.

So enjoyed our visit here. We spent a few hours being shown around by a German guide. The animals are well cared for and released into the wild when and if they can be. Go visit you will love it

We visited the ACCB with a group of school children, via the Ponheary Ly Foundation. It was simply delightful! We have visited similar places in Asia and Europe, as well as the US and this is our all-time favorite. By hosting a group of school children, not only did we experience a personal guided tour, but we were able to... More

If you have an afternoon free, you should visit this park and do your part to support the local effort to prevent cruelty to animals. They have several animals that are too 'damaged' to be released back into the wild. Successful breeding program of endangered species makes this a worthwhile cause.

This is not a zoo but a working conservation center. They do one tour a day in good English for about 90 minutes which includes a classroom session at the end. Get your hotel to check the times as you have to be on time to get in. They a variety of Asian wildlife that one might not see elsewhere.... More

We visited the center with Banteay Srei and Kbal Spean (the entrance to the place is next to Kbal Spean's parking lot) and went with the 1pm tour since the 9am one seemed a bit too early for us. We were only there for a little over an hour even though they said it would be an hour and a... More

Recommend it to everyone. You see a bunch of native animals and hear all about the future conservation efforts. The guide (Dan) was really knowledgeable.

This was an unexpected find on tripadvisor that we were so pleased we'd found and organised with a tuk tuk driver for our hotel. It cost us $25 for the tuk tuk there and back and we donated $10 to the conservation centre. The journey is 90mins but with plenty to see on the way and places to stop for... More
