LOVED IT! Exactly what we hoped, and our incredible tour guide personalized it and made the opportunity to see these wonderful animals in their natural habitat an unforgettable one. The orangutans are such lovable guys and SO MUCH FUN to WATCH!
The rehabilitation centre is brilliant and the orangutans fascinating. But this tour in my opinion is overpriced and the timings are not correct. There is no way this tour can be four hours long as the park is only open about an hour for feeding time and the drive is half hour each way. You may as well get a taxi. It will be much cheaper. But definitely worth visiting.
The disappointment with this tour is that orang utans did not appear. However, this was stressed to everyone before going to the observation platform. We were not too disappointed, as we have done this tour twice before and were lucky enough to them them on the 2 previous occasions. We were picked up and taken back to the hotel and it was a pleasant morning. The driver and guide, whose name I cannot recall (sorry) was very good. Recommend doing this, but don't be too disappointed if the orang utans don't appear - after all, it is up to them whether they come in or not.
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.
