Boats leave every half an hour for the 10-minute ride across the lake to
the island. Here these intelligent primates literally have the run of
the place. Visitors go through a 100m-long cage tunnel to get a close
and personal look at the orang utans as they roam free here. There are
19 orang utans on the island at present, with four of them being born
here. Here you can have the orang utans pose with with for pictures.
Only a small part of the island is used as a rehabilitation and
preservation facility. This program aims to develop and promote orang
utan conservation, propagation, research education and eco-tourism by
making the island into a breeding sanctuary for these animals.
The average rehabilitation programme takes up to five years. Here baby
orang utans are how to climb trees and forage for food in the wild.
Future plans foresee these primates roaming the currently unused part of
the island that is wild. This would be the ultimate test for the
rehabilitated orang utans - to be able to survive in the jungle without
any human intervention.
This 3-acre area houses birds, reptiles and primates in enclosures
created to closely resemble their natural habitats. Visitors may buy
animal feed at the entrance for the various animals here such as the
deer, monkeys or macaws. Visitors tour the park on an elevated boardwalk
that winds its way through the jungle canopy. On the Tropical Trek,
watch out for the playful squirrel monkeys that roam freely. At the
Reptile Park, iguanas bask under the sun as you walk past them. You will
also get to look at the honey bears lazing under the sun.

children can play with the animals. These include deer, tiny pet mice,
white rats, guinea pigs, rabbits and goats. There is also an animal
show, where the stars of the show macaws named Tango (a predominantly
blue-feathered bird) and Oni (red), performed a variety of tricks.
Chairlift & Skycycle
Not to be missed is The Skycycle, an elevated monorail through the tree
canopy. The only way to move the bright yellow car is to turn the pedals
with your hands! Here, you are at the same level as the treetops and
looking down, you can see chickens, goats and deer on the ground. It is
fun way to explore the rainforest.
