We really liked the shows, good place to visit with children. Not many species of other animals but plenty parrots. We tried to feed some of them, which was a nice experience. We are not fans of unnatural combinations as the liger.

I'm an animal lover having my 50th birthday this year and working through my animal encounter bucket list. I always include animal encounters into my family vacations. Although I love parrots, iguanas, and other more common wildlife species, I've experienced so many of these already and am excitingly looking for the less common ones to check off my bucket list. The sloths and lemurs would be new wonderful encounters for me, but I am particularly interested in whether there are opportunities to interact with orangutans. Can you please let me know if this is possible through the admission or through a paid encounter? I would be happy to schedule one with a donation as well. Also, it was not clear to me how the VIP tours may differ from a general admission plus lemur and sloth interaction. I am not interested in the VIP seats for shows so this is not an additional benefit that I would be willing to pay for. Any help in better explaining these in terms of encounters (differently from what is on the website) would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.

There are orangutans in an enclosure, but encounters are NOT possible. We did not purchase VIP tickets or animal encounters, so I have no further info on that.
