If you love gibbons this is a fun and unique way to support them directly while spending time with them in close proximity. You wake up to the sound of them singing, which is very early in the morning so it is a very rare opportunity to experience. You can wander about the site watching them play in the morning. The site itself is great, cleared and flat with a campfire and rocking chairs, as well as a nice grill that is yours to use.

One of the most unique camping experiences so far! Waking up at 6:00am to the sounds of singing apes is pretty incredible. Our host Alma was so welcoming and was more than happy to show us around and answer any questions we had about the gibbons. The work they do is amazing and inspiring, such a wonderful experience.

This "camping experience" was a gift to a friend, and he said: "This was a life-changing experience for me. It exceeded every expectation of mine. The campsite was great; and, I have never met more friendly, more knowledgeable, more patient and more dedicated animal-conservation people in my life. And, I can't think of a better way to start a day than by being awakened in my tent by the 'singing' of gibbons -- gibbons that appeared and behaved as the comfortable, healthy and very well cared-for gibbons they are!"
