Worth the visit. We were in the morning. No garantee for seeing Oeramgatangs. We were lucky and saw eight! Amazing animals to watch.

Its a very nice reservation and you can see the monkeys very closely. Unfortunately we entered to late so we spent not enough time there. All the time I was thinking how cool it be to be a volunteer there!

This is a good place to see the orangutan in the wild - be warned there are no fences and they can be aggressive if they think you have food
