It's a very small area were the tourist can walk I'm not sure if the sanctuary is actually bigger. A guide walks you through the path and shows you were the Tarsier is sleeping, they say that they go early morning to spot them and then show where they are to the tourists. It seem a bit strange that the... More

A nominal entry fee will get you time to walk around a small bit of the sanctuary where guides are available to show you the animals and answer any questions. Since they're nocturnal don't expect to see them do anything but sleep. Be quiet and don't disturb them. A great way too see the worlds smallest primate in semi wild... More

The journey to Corella is long, but well worth it. The tarsier sanctuary is well maintained and our guide was extremely informative and very happy to answer questions. There are 8 tarsiers in total of which she found 6 for us. It is good to see that they are looking after their endangered species.

Nice place but very small. There is more than 100 of smallest primates but you will see only few of them. Any way they are so cute. I recommend visit this place late afternoon before they close ( 4pm ) not many people.

The long drive to this sanctuary was worth it. I've seen tarsiers before but in zoo enclosures. Seeing them in their natural habitat is a totally different experience. It also helped that our guide in the sanctuary was very helpful in spotting them out for us.

Tarsiers are indeed cute animals but the visit was extremely quick (less than 15 minutes). You're processed along with a bunch of people agglutinating around this poor animals, you're gonna see 6 or 7 of them (they aren't many more apparently which is quite sad)and that's it.

Definitely worth seeing! I fell in love with these tiny but amazing animals. Our guide was very good and answered all our questions and made sure we did not use flash and kept quiet, even though seeing these lovelies just made me want to squeal in joy.

The entree fee is a couple of euro but to be honest not even that is worth it. We've seen like 4 Tarsiers, that's all great but you are done in 5 minutes at this sanctuary.

Its good to see the efforts they have in place to protect their wildlife. Cute little things but were inactive when we went during the afternoon.

We stopped by the Tarsier Sanctuary on our way to the Chocolate Hills and really enjoyed our visit! The sanctuary is small, so you won't be there for too long, but it's definitely worth a look around just to see these tiny little primates in their natural rainforest surroundings (and find out more about them in the process). As they're... More
