For a very nominal fee, you can walk through a small natural conservatory to see several Tarsiers resting in the trees only a few feet away. They are very little and typically sleeping, but sometimes they wake up and you can even them peering at...More

You will be surprised how special these tiny creatures are. Its a short walk & there are volunteers who will help you locate the Tarsier. Outside the conservation area, you will find coconut water which is huge, tasty & very cheap. Do try it.

It's a quick visit to see a handful of tarsiers in a semi-natural environment. But hordes of people flocking to see these fragile nocturnal animals taking their much-needed rest during the day makes you think if tourist stops like this are beneficial for wildlife. This...More

Just about 8 small primates at this site. Cost is only about $1usd. Walking thru the park takes less than 20 minutes. Primates are asleep during the day so you see little fuzballs in the trees not moving. I did not find it very worthwhile....More

Never seen anything like it, and appreciated the opportunity to be up close and observe. Staff was careful about visitors not using camera flash, and the groups of people there were quiet and respectful at the time of my visit. I wish there were a...More

A good way to meet the tarsiers due to their innate nature. Some guests were noisy and used flash camera when strictly advised not to do so. The guides educated us in detail in English and directed us to the Tarsiers as they were small...More

The conservation area has pathways to lead you one way through a small area where you can easily see the Tarsiers asleep under their leaves. Employees are posted at spots and they will point out the Tarsiers to you. They are fairly close to the...More

It is just P50.00/person to enter the conservation area. So worth it to see the adorable tarsiers! 😊😊😊
