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

After all the temples, this offers a different experience, a sanctuary for animals that have been rescued from being domestic pets, caught by poachers, injured, abandoned etc. They have langurs, leopard cats, cranes and storks and much more. Allow 90 mins in a tuktuk from the centre of Siem Reap, tours at 9.00am and 1.00pm. It's at Kbal Spean, at... More

If you like animals and the thought that there are people who care and want to see the native cambodia animals saved, then this is for you. Make sure you get there before 1.00pm and if you want a great spot for lunch there is a fantastic restaurant just 100m before the entry. Guided tour is great so suggest you... More

Just got back to our Hotel in Siem Reap and loved the tour! First up, Tuk-Tuk was just $30 but we gave $40 cause he was a good guy and he was riding in the sun all day. The journey is about 1.5hrs and I loved the ride so much because it gave us an opportunity most people miss to... More

I took a class of 25 children on an excursion here. They provided a fantastic lesson on Habitats and the children really enjoyed seeing the animals. The staff were informative and very good at their jobs. The children loved it and learned a lot.

If you love animals and care about the environment, this is the place for you. Take a 1.5 hour tour through the conservation center led by a knowledgeable conservation specialist. I learned so much and really enjoyed supporting this cause. In addition you will see very up close some beautiful gibbons, green pea fowl (not to be confused with Indian... More

We decided to visit this place the same time we were up visiting Beantay Srei and Kbal Spean as it is in the same area. The tour was informative, the staff are very friendly and the price was very reasonable. It was great to learn about the local wildlife and the conservation efforts taking place through this organization's work. Would... More

Here's the deal - you are in beautiful Cambodia, visiting temples, eating fish amok out of a coconut and bartering at the night markets. Don't miss this equally AWESOME experience with staff that passionately cares about saving and rehabilitating local species - you'd regret it!
