A great drive to this place. You wont need a pass ( unless u dont mind paying for the toilets). The entry is three dollars minimum donations. The tour is between 1PM to 3PM only so be there on time. They will open the door at 1 and close it by 1:15 or so.They have a few animals not many but the tour was fun, educational and enjoyable. I would recommend it once you are done with the temples etc. A welcomed change.

Situated about 60 kms north of Siem Reap at Kbal Spean. Here is where endangered wild life is saved from being eaten or hurt in the wild.The tours are at 1.00 pm Monday - Saturday and take you through the animal enclosures. Some of the injured animals will never be released because they would never survive in the wild but may be used for breeding purposes to build up stocks in the wild.The captive animals are a powerful tool to raise awareness of their treats in the wild. The staff are very professional and know their stuff and are lovers of nature - A must visit!!

These guys have tours which show some of the diversity of local wild life including endangered and rare species...they work on returning injured and found animals back to their natural environment as well as breading ...the tour is very worth while ....you can also visit the nearby jungle and water falls whilst there.
