Went with my 3 children (15,12,10). Not a lot to see at the gibbon sanctuary as they are trying to keep the gibbons awaiting release back in to the wild away from humans. Worth supporting though and lots of information available about their work. Would have been very short trip if we hadn't clambered back along the river after walking... More

The GRB do some really wonderful work. While there isn't much to see on site, you can glimpse a number of the gibbons and hear their calls. This in itself is wonderful. The staff are very willing to talk about what they do and there are a number of information boards about the gibbons. There is a little gift shop... More

In the website, it seems to be an amazing parc of rehabilitation where you really take care of animals. Sadly, when we went there ... firstly it was full of people.. the parc is only for 30mns walk (very small) and there are only 4 desperate gibbons in a cage!!! What!!!! I was shocked. I don't recommend at all. Do... More

You can only view a few gibbons at a very safe distance here, which is great because they aren't shamelessly parading these creatures for monetary gain. My friend and I 'adopted' a couple for a year and the donation came with a couple post cards, a free shirt and updates on how the Gibbon family is doing before being reintroduced... More

The project is a great example of a genuine place which cares for the animals. It is free to visit however you do have to pay for entry into the national park which is about 200thb. They have a great gift shop which provides information on what each purchase contributes to the project. I travelled alone and it took me... More

They are doing amazing work here, I was really moved. You can't see much, which is good because they are trying to rehabilitate the gibbons. Go for the education, leave with an adoption.

The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project is well worth visiting. Their plight to help injured and ill treated Gibbons and remove them from the tourism industry and back into their natural habitat is inspiring. The information provided when entering the area is very interesting. Good luck guys, keep up the good work!

I volunteered at GRP as part of my work experience and had a great time working there. This project is doing an amazing work rescuing gibbons from illegal traffic and rehabilitating them to release them back in the wild. It's a really hard work caring for traumatised and distressed animals who are poached for mainly touristic attraction but it is... More

Went to visit the gibbon rehab project, and learnt what devastating effects of tourists taking photos with gibbons & monkeys have on the ape population. So sad to hear & see what these beautiful creatures have to endure for the pleasure of humans wanting a photo for memories of their holiday. One visit here and you will never consider paying...

Definitely worth a visit their story is gut wrenching but to see them and hear their song of way of talking to one another is very heart warming, would strongly recommend you go and visit these little Gibbons, try and not fall in love with them if you can, I doubt if you can. Sponsorship is available not expensive and... More
