I thought it was going to be a more hands on experience. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there from Siem Reap and if that was all i did for the day and that effort of driving i would be disappointed. Thankfully there other things that were outstanding along the way. Water fall, Land mine Museum and Temples.

The locals call this place "a zoo," but it's really a rescue center for different animals. I went there on a day trip from Siem Reap, and also saw the Kbal Spean waterfall (the trail starts from the same parking lot as the ACCB) and the Banteay Srei temple on the way back. But the 9 am tour of the... More

CAMBODIA is a poor country so you would think no one have time to think about wild life. ACCB proves the opposite. Don't expect going to San Diego Zoo, this is a conservation center in Siem Reap. Real people doing the right thing with whatever they have available. Very nice installations, around 35 species, knowledgeable guides. If you are tired... More

Visited yesterday for the 1pm tour of the centre. Saw lots of different animals which are native to Cambodia, some of which are endangered, or are at risk of being so. ACCB seem to be doing. Good job of looking after the animals which they rescue and releasing the ones they can. They also have breeding programs for endangered species.... More

We did a wonderful tour with a wonderful guide. Very informative and passionate about the wonderful work they do there. Was an hour tuk tuk ride each way from Siem Reap and although a hot day the ride was breezy and comfortable and we enjoyed looking at the countryside along the way. Kids loved seeing the hornbill bird and Gibbons.... More

I typically hate zoos because I react viscerally to seeing animals in cages. However, this place was tremendous and I did not feel that way at all. They rehab and release whenever possible-- all animals are rescues from poachers or illegal pet trade. They are doing yeoman's work educating the locals about conservation and saving the lives of endangered species.... More

The Centre for Conservation is run by friendly and knowledgeable staff. They do important work, and many endangered species are here, including birds and reptiles, as well as some primates, such as Gibbons, which the center has been gradually re-introducing into the area around Angkor Wat! Also neat is that the center uses the same parking lot as the entrance... More

Kids love to see the different animals. Educational for adults as well. Went for 9am tour and visited Bantaey Srei along the way back to Siem Reap.

The tour was excellent. It is offered daily at 0900 and 1300 for a suggested $3. If you are interested in wildlife conservation or have questions about the local wildlife ecology, this is a can't miss.

We went out to Kbal Spean for the day with a group of families. We first visited the Wildlife Center: if you are with 5 or more you can get a private tour, which was perfect. The tourguide Chum (if I spell this correctly) was very knowledgable and passionate about wildlife conservation. He would share information and answer questions while... More
