The sanctuary is set off the main road in an area of jungle protecting the little animals. A good system of guides that take you very quietly to different locations in the jungle area where you can see the little animals. They are nocturnal so in the day not active and just sit there and stare at you with big... More

I love this animals .. They are incredible nice and small :) We went a group of 6 friends - was amazing . The center it's very nice in the forest but very easy to reach it. I suggest go first here, after go to chocolate hills. Very cheap - 60 pesos - you can do it in 1 hour... More

Wildlife Sanctuary is doing a really good job to preserve one of the smallest primates on the world. We learned a lot of their work. It is worth to visit!

On average people see 3-5 tarsiers here, we saw 5 so were very lucky. There is a small museum which could be improved by giving some more detailed information on their conservation programme. The visit will only take about 30 mins but we really enjoyed it. Make sure you wear lots of insect repellant, you will be in a damp... More

I rated 3 as I have mixed feelings for this place. Pros: My daughter was keen to see tarsiers so we were pleased to see 6 of them so closely. Tarsiers are (at least) in natural environment and protected by the the guides who bring you right to them. No big groups allowed in one time, no loud speaking, no... More

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!

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.
