  • Very interesting place with a lot of orangutans around. But don't worry - it's safe. If you want to see a piece of wild nature, come there. You will not regret about it.
  • Very well kept and Orangutans are allowed to swing freely around. Rangers are passionate about keeping tabs on the animals and know each one by name. Area is clean, neat and tidy. We were very blessed that day when we managed to see a mother and her baby, 3 males and the matriarch. We were told in some days we may not see any of them at all.
