Perfect emphasis on gibbons over tourists

Being on tripadvisor you would expect the GBR to focus on the needs and wants of tourists. However... read more

It’s disgraceful to read about how horrifically these apes are treated in captivity by humans, absolutely disgusting!

The kind people here at GRP are doing a fantastic job trying to rehabilitate the gibbons back into the wild, but sadly it’s a very long drawn out process that isn’t always successful.

I wish the team here all the best and hope more people will visit the Centre and give support.

It’s sad that the only way we can help is by providing some money, wish we could do more and wish the authorities could do more by educating the masses from school level so hopefully the trafficking in these lovely creatures will stop!

This is an important project for saving the Gibbon monkeys. You can see only 5-6 monkeys in cages. These monkeys, cannot be part of a group. They will probably never go back to nature. You can see and mainly hear them shouting and screaming. Some will say that it is nice.
However, it is not worth a visit. The waterfall that is some 200 meters later, is a bit of “track” in the jungle. Most people saw much more impressive falls. Unless you are on the way and have a free hour or so, it is not worth a visit.

When we visited there were downed trees from a storm so did not get to see most of the area. However, there are very informative signs and postings that are worth the time to read. We did see a few gibbons that are close to the front of the reserve. The people there are very passionate about what they do to help rescue and rehabilitate these animals. The project is right on the path to a waterfall, easily accessed, great 'storefront' where you can leave a donation/support them.

The folks at the Centre are to be commended for their work. The sanctuary is nestled into the hillside helping to create a natural setting. As they say it is not a zoo, and while you can see the gibbons from afar, you don't get a great close up.
Be sure to take time to read the many stories and we found the staff to be full of interesting tidbits of information on gibbons. Definitely worth a stop and worth a donation, no matter how small.

Not an attraction as such; there is no interaction with animals and the staff give ony brief descriptions of the project. More details are gleaned from the info poster's around the place. Well and truly a worthwhile project.
