Join us for a guided tour of the rescue centre at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. This is the only way to visit the ACCB as we are normally closed to the public.

For any animal lover this is an absolute must. It's well worth the 1¼ hour taxi ride from Siem Reap. I had very limited time so was unable to combine the tour with many other options close by, such as the Landmine Museum, Butterfly Garden, etc. which would make the $50 taxi fare of more value. . Arrived in time... More

ACCB is doing excellent work! They permanently house animals which need it, and only temporarily house animals which can be released upon rehabilitation. They also receive relinquishments from locals who own exotic pets, and work with authority to seize illegally kept animals. The day we went we saw many birds of prey, hornbill, herons, porcupine, gibbons, macaques, and tortoises. We... More

After reading amazing things about this place on here and being animal lovers we thought we would take a day off from exploring the vast temples of ankor and visit. It took about 1 hour 20 minutes from siem reap and cost us 40$ in a taxi (this included stoping at the land mine musium and butterfly sanctuary on the... More

We visited this as part of a day trip, they have two session a day (9am & 1pm I think) where you are are guided around the animal enclosures and told about how each of the animals came to be there. When we visited there was a lot of working going on to build new enclosures so we were not... More

It was really fun. We could see almost all animals listed on their website. The guide (monkey) was really great. She spoke English very well and was able to give an informative and entertaining tour. It's great that animals which wouldn't survive in the wild anymore can live a nice life here. Also they are breading endangered species and educate... More

Visit the center and you will be inspired. It is worth the drive from Siem Reap! We received a 1.5 hour private tour from a guide who spoke perfect English and knew the animals thoroughly. The center offers group tours at 9AM and 11AM. The animals are heartwarming! They live in brand new enclosures that incorporate the surrounding jungle and... More

I was lucky to have a guild to myself who had good english speaking skills, there are not lots of animal here but the guild was very informative about the endangered animals in ther care and she was giving the history of each animal, well worth the journey from siem reap, 100 km round trip

We went on their 1.5 hour guided tour through their area. Our guide was knowledgeable and very fun. She seemed to know all the animals personally. Her passion about bringing the animals back to the wild and at the same time seeing reality clearly was inspiring. The work they are doing must be very frustrating. The question really becomes, even... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at ACCB (we almost didn't come here due to the distance from town but we were really glad we made the effort to get there- its definitely worth the drive if you are into animals and conservation). We saw many amazing species we had never seen and heard some heartbreaking stories about... More

There are very few places in Cambodia that seem to take wildlife conservation seriously, and this is one of them, as well as one of the few places where you will actually see any animals other than long-tailed macaques. The centre runs as a wildlife rehabilitation and long term facility - injured, orphaned, and seized animals are brought here for... More
