These guys are doing incredible work and you really should visit.

The only reason I didn't give 5* is they need to be harder on the idiot tourists and tell them on arrival to have respect for the animals, speak quietly and turn off the beeps and flash on their camera.

Cheeky orang utans! Ensure to put mosquito repellents on you and leave your bags at the cloak room provides. A small camera fee is also payable.

Our visit was part of the ecoborneo river cruise tour (3D, national geographic Lodge). Even though it was lashing rain, the reabilitation centre was a planned stop. We got to see baby orangutans in the morning (9:30 to 10) and then a monkey at the feeding platform. If it was not raining and not part of the tour, I would have gladly spent the whole morning. (Including the attached sunbear centre)

The aim to re-introduce the animals back into the wild means there may not be any to view but we saw one magnificent creature. It was raining and they do not like the rain. Great experience walking on boardwalks through the jungle, in the heat, but using an umbrella.
