Was wonderful. It was fruiting season in the Forest. But we were so very lucky to see two. A mother and daughter. They were fed along the track and they are such wonderful creatures. The ranger who spoke to us when we went back to the shop was so very informative.

The tour was great our guide was very informative. We got to see only a few Orangutans on this trip as fruit was in season and most of the Orangutans were out and about. This is good to see that they do not rely on the Centre to feed them. All in all it was a good tour and seeing the Orangutans was magical.

An excellent chance to see Orang Utans in their natural habitat and also close up. I certainly would not argue with Ritchie (the male alpha) he smashed a bill board up with no effort at all, obviously in a bad mood! To see mum's and babies swinging effortlessly through the forest was excellent. An excellent trip.

My driver arrived bang on time no waiting around wondering if there was some communication problem. he was friendly and informative about the rehabilitation centre, how it functions, history, success rates etc etc. Also made it very clear that these are wild animals and do not just show up for tourists, which shows the program is working. I have to say though, I was overcome with joy and emotion that we did indeed see a mother and child Orangutan interacting out in the open and for some time. Giving everyone a wonderful chance to take photos,video and just watch the chance of a lifetime experience. What an amazing first day in Borneo for me.

Feeding time open to the public lasts one hour.We went for the 9am feeding and was worried we were not going to see any Orangutans because as of 9.45am there was still no sign of them. Then five turned up and the staff were nice enough to let us stay till 10.20am. Great to see the apes swinging thru the trees doing what ever they wanted to do. Well worth it.

This is a awesome tour for all ages. It is much better than the Sandacan tour unless you are staying in Sandican. You can get up close with the orangutans and do not have to trek far to do it. It is about an hour drive from town and the discription should state this. You only spend about 1 hour with the Orangutans.

Thoroughly enjoyed the park! The keepers obviously enjoy their job and were very informative.

good going by 'private' car; friendly and interesting driver. always too little time with the orangs but worth evry minute.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

It was better than going to a zoo but the orangutans are not completely wild and are lured by food to a place for tourists to see them. That being said, it was great to see two mothers and young babies, however most of the orangutans did not show up because at this time of the year most stay in the rainforest to feed on natural fruit - so there were far fewer orangutans appearing than I was led to believe.
