This is a must-see place in Sabah. It was both fun and interesting to see the monkeys. We learned a lot and the place is very important for the monkeys. So go there, experience and benefit. I strongly recommend!

Absolutely not. This is a place to rehabilitate Orang Utans into the wild. They are not play things! A fabulous place and well worth a visit.
