The Tarsier, known locally as Maomag, is one of the smallest primates whose existence is threatened largely due to loss of habitat. They are solitary and arboreal creatures - they live alone in trees in tropical rainforests. They are nocturnal and have the largest eyes of all primates. They are mostly hidden, and can easily do so being about 3... More

I guess its worth a stop given its on the way to the choclate hills. This place doesnt seem to have anything at all to do with conservation though. You walk up a little path and there about 6 of these Taraiers specifically positioned in low trees close by so you can see them. One tree had a stray dog... More

They are incredible! So tiny that unless one sees them, one would / could not fathom. The sanctuary has a total Of 8 tarsiers! Very nice visit: kids would love it but they do have to be very very quiet!

We went here because it was part of our educational tour in bohol. To be honest, i did not enjoyed this part so much because first, it was raining that day so we werent able to see a lot pf tarsiers. I think we saw 3-5 tarsiers only and yes, itis because it's raining according to the employees who guided... More

To be honest, i'm not really excited to go here becuase of the fact that I'm scared of rats and tarsiers look exactly like one 😭 I was literally walking in there with my umbrella covering my eyes HAHAHA I was that scared. We visited this sanctuary because it's part of our itinerary (day tour in bohol) and I have... More

Only rated this 3 as unsure how I feel about the place. Positives - The tarsiers are in a more natural environment than the other sanctuary in the area. It is government run and you can't touch the tarsiers. Negatives - although supposedly in a more natural environment, the tarsiers are still specifically positioned for the public to view -... More

I was advised to visit this centre over others for a positive well managed experience. My son and I were able to go in and see tarsiers close up. Got some amazing photos also. Staff were with us at all times to answer questions and ensure that visitors do the right thing by the animals. The tarsiers were in a... More

One place you should not miss when in Bohol. Lokking tarsiers in photos is different from seeing them in its actual sanctuary. They are cute little creatures and seeing them looking at me gave me an extra ordinary feeling of excitement and joy. However, due to frequent visitors, these tarsiers adopt from being nocturnal to being awake at day time.... More

This is simply a must see when visiting Bohol. The system here is very organized, and seemingly responsible for care of the Tarsiers is taken. Really no need to say more, just look at the pictures of these little guys!

There are 8 in the sanctuary, and every morning the staff try and locate them, in their sleeping place for the day, all so they can show visitors. We were lucky enough to see 4 and they were very low in the branches so we had a great view. Because you get a guide you only need 20 minutes here,... More
