  • A great experience at a facility doing legitimate conservation work. The dedicated staff answered all our questions and were very knowledgeable.

  • This is a wonderful place. disclaimer - this is not a zoo and you will not get to be up close with or interact with the gibbons in any way. This is for the benefit of the animals. Most of the tour is a very knowledgeable guide talking to us about the wildlife trade in Thailand, how they end up in the rescue center, gibbons' life cycles etc. and we do get 10-15 mins of looking at the gibbons from a distance at the end. In terms of excitement, it is minimal; there's no interaction with animals. But in terms of supporting a wonderful, important project and animal conservation, this place is stellar. I would come again to support them.
  • Fantastic place. We researched for “ethical” animal sanctuaries and this one came up and it was great. Our guide “Roch” was so knowledgeable and he genuinely cared about the well-being of these beautiful animals. Please ignore the “fools” who mention that you can’t “touch” or pet these animals. That’s the whole point…….The monkeys are taken from abusive situations and cared for here and released back in the wild when ready. Enjoy your stay here and help this great place!!
