“Fabulous experience - take a break from the past.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Had a wonderful tour yesterday at ACCB. Do call in, they are doing great work and it was really interesting too! Get there for 1pm as they are only open to the public for tours at that time (every day except Sunday). This will remind you that the area around Angkor is more that just a historical marvel, the most amazing wildlife is found there too. The work they do with the local community is great, well done.

Easy to tie in with a trip to Kbal Spean (access from the same car park) and just call into Banteay Srey on the way back into town.

If you see wildlife in trouble in Cambodia, there are people who can help. No need for Ghostbusters, when these guys are around. Inspirational.

No fee, but donations help them to carry on their work.

“ACCB Wildlife rescue and conservation at its very best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

When the war was at its height the Kmer Rouge used this old temple site as a base. With the river and the forest surround, it was the perfect hideaway. Sadly, the forest was depleted of most of its wildlife, but now the site is being used for the rescue, rehabilitation and conservation of the critically endangered Cambodian wildlife. An oasis in the middle of the Cambodian countryside awaits you, along with an enlightening tour of the centre by knowledgeable staff. Meeting the animals, hearing their stories and the efforts of ACCB to save them is fascinating. Cranes with a wing span of 2meters become your friend. A truly wonderful experience. Tour starts promptly at 1pm. It essential you are waiting at the entrance on time. This visit is a welcome break from the busy crowded temples of Angkor and certainly a very special experience. Entrance is free, but a small donation ($3US) is well worth it!

“See another side to Cambodia- its wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

If you go a little further than Banteay Srey, you will find this place. We combined our trip with the temple, Land Mine Museum and Butterfly Park.
Tours start at 1pm daily. We were taken around the sanctuary by a knowledgeable team member. We met some of the resident animals whilst learning about Cambodian Wildlife. They are a wonderful NGO, rescuing animals, rehabilitating and educating the community.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

A wonderful tour through the conservation centre, they are doing great work for the endangered species of cambodia. The perfect way to break up the temple visits. You must be there in time for the 1pm tour. Quite far out of town. Can include this on your day trip to banteay srey and kabal spean.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

We visited the centre after visiting Banteay Srei, and was pleasantly surprised. Tours run at 1pm daily and are free but a donation of only $3.00 is appreciated. Our tour guide had great English and explained things very well but not in too much detail that we got bored. Outside the centre there are places to eat and good bathroom facilities.
