Only in two places in the world Orangutans can be seen in the wild. These are in Bohorok / Bukit Lawang in the Gunung Leuser National Park on Sumatra and in the Malaysian part of Borneo. That’s why a visit to the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre on Sumatra is a unique experience!
From all over the world, people come to Bohorok to see these beautiful and friendly animals. Besides Orangutans, you can also see the Siamang (Black furred gibbons), Thomas’s Leaf monkeys, the Long-tailed Macaque, Gibbons, small deer such as the Mouse-deer, different types of reptiles and a variety of birds.
