We went in the afternoon as not as busy. Feeding is at 3 pm but you can enter from 2 pm and stay until 4pm. The platform is very busy and people do not observe the quiet signs! We saw one large orangutang here. We...More

One of the many highlights of our visit to Borneo. The sight of Orangutans in a semi-wild location is quite impressive. You can also learn about the important work the centre does for these exceptional animals and also the work they do for local ecology....More

As many of us go to Borneo partly to see this amazing creature I would advise you do the rehabilitation centre on your own and avoid the tours. You can get a day ticket and spend all the time there to absorb the beauty of...More
