We found this tour very informative as we just came from a visit to a national park in Thailand were we had seen some of the animals, especially gibbons in their natural habitat. Being able to see them close-up now and getting lots of explanations from our knowledgeable guide was very rewarding. Unlike in a zoo, the animals are kept... More

This place is doing an amazing job conserving the wildlife of Cambodia. I also love how they engage the school children and teach them about the importance of animals and environment. Monkey was an informative guide and the tour was a pleasure.

We did a private tour and got shown around behind the scenes a little bit. This place is great trying to save Cambodias native animals and protect them for the future. The gibbons are beautiful. They have nice sized enclosures for the animal but are trying to develop and raise money to continue to built the area and continue to... More

I considered that it was a zoo, but the guide (Mrs. beautiful Monkey) told us that this was a wildlife Conservation Project run by Germany. We were shown by the expert about each specie which all wonderful. It was great place to show all people especially children.

I loved our visit here, it was very educational and such a wonderful reserve considering the poverty of Cambodia. It's so wonderful to know that animals are looked after and protected here. The animals are very well looked after and respected and you know the workes of the centre are very passionate about the conservation of their animals. I find... More

I took my 3 children to the morning tour and we were very impressed. Our guide was Rattanak (sorry unsure of the spelling - her nickname is Monkey). Her English was very good and she was incredibly passionate about what she does. The centre houses a variety of animals including gibbons, macaques, Eagles and hornbills. The gibbons and macaques are... More

I really enjoyed my visit of the ACCB. Our guide was very passionate about her work and we can feel that she trully loves the animals to whom she introduces us. This tour really brings a lot of awareness about how Cambodian wild life needs to be preserved. I was really touched by the explanation our guide gave us about... More

Incredible initiative, done with a lot of heart and respect for animals. You won't see tons of animals and not necessarily the classic "cuties", that's not exactly the idea. This center rescues and hosts animals that were captured and wrongly treated, and tries to release them into wildlife as soon as they are ready. As a consequence, you will not... More

ACCB has been a wonderful experience! On the way to the waterfalls (unfortunately for me without water) I was so lucky to bump into this recuperation centre. I had to wait for a while as it is open at 9:00 and 13:00 but it was worth it every minute. Our tour guide, SamPhos, was really helpful and knowledgeable! We had... More

A visit to this centre can be combined with a hike up Kbal Spean. This is an excellent centre where animals are rescued and rehabilitated before being released back to the wild. The centre is open only at 9 am and 1 pm and the tour takes about 1 1/2 hours. A donation of minimum USD3 is collected. The money... More
