    DO NOT SUPPORT!
    Didn’t plan on a visit here, we drove past & thought we’d check it out... BIG MISTAKE! Poor poor animals, small dirty enclosures. The poor lions enclosure is bare! no food or water out nothing, the lion look malnourished very sad to see. None of the animals look happy here & many are alone. This place needs MASSIVE improvement or the be closed. If your visiting purely to see the Tarsiers I would recommend going to the Taster sanctuary or the conservation.

    Terrible place that thinks it’s ok to keep a lion in a tiny enclosure!
    We went here to see the Tasiers but then realised that they also have other exotic animals. Seeing a male African lion continually pace panting around a small and filthy I enclosure was just heart wrenching. It astounds me that this place is allowed to get away this!? The place Is delapidated and depressing. Do not visit.

    A horrible place
    We visited the zoo hoping to see the tarsiers. We thought it was some kind of wildlife reserve. But a big surprise was waiting for us. The place is basically a jail for animals. It is possible to hold a big snake and a crocodile. Both of them barely moved and the second one had a rope around the mouth to avoid biting. Animals are not toys. I could understand a place where animals have enough space to live comfortably (although it is clear that an animal should live in its natural ecosystem and the debate whether zoos are ethical or not could be easily started). But the situation of these animals is unbearable. Please avoid places like this one. There are better places to see tarsiers. Places where they live freely. Paying for this kind of attraction is supporting animal torture. To finish up, the guide didn't wait for the whole group to start the explanations about the different species.

Yes you will the Tarsier here in a relatively natural setting, but what we didn't realise was there would be other animals there kept in very poor conditions, the worst of which was a poor Lion kept in a small concrete pen, unsurprisingly he looked very depressed. When I asked about him, they cheerfully said he came from Africa and they had a female coming so they could breed :(((( All the animals looked sad and depressed and we felt the same after leaving there. Do not support this place, I don't know if there are better places to see the Tarsier, but do your research before the tour takes you to some of these places :((((

Our tour guide suggested to go to wildlife to see tarsier and get a pass at the Loboc river cruise and so we went. We paid 150 each person. There were ostriches, few other birds, few crocodiles, then maybe 3 tarsiers, an owl, a deer,butterflies, and a poor lion. I pity the tarsier because the staff would wake it up so he could take photo with its eyes open. And the lion, it broke my heart. Very small place. It could not roam as it needs to. It looked very sad. It needs bigger space. We just spent few minutes there. And oh, the toilet cubicles, the doors would not lock. Disappointing.

Only went to this place as I wanted to see the tasiers and other sanctuaries where closed. Upon entering it was clear that this place had no regard for the animals it kept. Too many issues to list but the worst was a poor one year old lion who was in a very small cage with no access to water or any vegetation. This place needs to be Invetsiagted and I wish I could give it zero rating.

BAD BAD BAD BAD AWFUL PLACE. We were driving past and saw ostriches and went to have a glimpse. What we saw in the entrance were 6 of them together in a tiny cage maximum 7x7meters. They were miserable and stressed and had ripped their feathers out. Very sad to see. If you have a heart do NOT go here as it will break just as mine did seeing these poor beautiful creatures in this horrible way. No one that works here cares about these animals. I wish there was a way to shut this place down.

We went to see the Tasiers’s thinking this was a an animal conservation site, Little did i know that the rest of the animals are kept in very small and badly kept enclosures. our guide took us in, the first animal I saw was a very sad young male lion kept in a small space with nothing In it. A member of staff was banging on the bars to try and get him to roar for the people walking around. I was horrified and deeply saddened by the space and living conditions of not only the lion but most of the animals, the birds, the fish in tanks with peeling paint, the crocs, and even the gheko’s.
I asked the tour guide if they were going to make changes to the enclosures, that it was not good enough and she got annoyed and kept saying that they had had a management meeting about it and yes they were going to make changes, that the site was new. I asked when and she couldn’t answer.
Not only that but they ask if you want to hold and touch everything that is safe to be near, take photos. The amount of people that go there every day constantly touching must be stressful for them. Our guide said people are only allowed to do this once a week, as she could see this was causing me more concern. I really am not sure this is true.
Surely in this day and age we should not have to see, or want to see anything living in such cramped conditions. I left feeling upset and angry at having gone to such a place, and the sadness of the lion has stayed with me.
It is brilliant that they have made changes to how they keep the Tasiers, but shocking conditions for anything else that has to live there.

Amazing place where you can pay to sustain the abuse of animals from big snakes to eagles! See if animal suffering is enough to make your holidays happy!

Positive - you will see Tarsiers.

That's it.

Before you see them you will see plenty of other animals being mistreated in small pens and in unstimulating environments.

I find it hard to believe in such a huge jungle that 3 Tarsier happened to be next to the path we happen to be on. Without a doubt they are placed there and kept elsewhere.

Genuinely sickening profiteering and exploitation of wildlife.

Turns out there is a genuine sanctuary on the island as well.

Don't make the mistake we did..
Please go there instead.

Disgusting treatment of animals . They are holding animals captive and alone in tiny cages. This poor tiger was pacing back and forth in a tiny concrete cage alone. No room to run around, no water and no companions. It made me sick. I walked straight out and demanded a refund. If you have a heart , do not fund this place.

I thought I was visiting a sanctuary but it wasn't. The animals are kept in very small cages, some without shade. The poor tiger (or lion I don't remember) was alone in a tiny enclosure (so small it can't even run just walk around). I asked if the big crocodile will be set free when it gets bigger (because of the small cage it was in) and the guide said it depends of Management. A small crocodile's mouth was taped shut so that visitors can hold it.

Don't go there if you love animals.
