Recommend a visit, reasonable entrance fee although charge for cameras? Would rather this was included in entrance fee. Morning feeding time was very busy and noisy so probably why no orangutans showed up. We were lucky in the afternoon feeding session to see three and...More

What a fantastic experience. Not only were there playful Orang Utans in the ‘stage 2 nursery’ being very playful and looking like they were escaping. But numerous at feeding time as well as sudden appearances on the walkways. One appeared late but didn’t let us...More

Had an amazing day seeing both orangutans and sun bears (at the centre next door). Beautiful centre. Lovely to see the young orangutans in the 'nursery' though a shame this is from behind glass. The video is worth watching. Would recommend going for the afternoon....More

This place is amazing. You go into a large area of reserved rainforest with beautiful boardwalks, and get to visit feeding areas where orangutans can come if they want to be fed by humans. When I was visiting, there was a wild baby orangutan that...More

you don't need to do an organised tour there is a clear walk way around and there are employees who can answer any questions you may have. Don't forget to walk across the car park to the sun bear center as well

Hi! The taxi cost about RM50 but i reccomend to take an Uber or Grab. An uber cost about RM25-RM28. I think the price is about the same. I volunteered there for 2 months and I reccomend you to visit the centre on weekdays.
