Gibbon Rehabilitation Project

Thalang, North Phuket

The Rehabilitation site and the Education center are located in Khao Phra Theaw Non-Hunting Area at Bang Pae Waterfall in Phuket, Thailand. You can visit our center and see some of the gibbons from Viewing Platform. The Center is open dailly from 9am to 4.30pm. We do not charge an entrance fee. There are free copies of multilingual leaflet for visitors who come to visit and wish to know more about the project. There is no charge for the project area entrance but visitors will need to pay approximately 100-200 Baht each for National Park entrance fee at the main gate of the National Park.


  1. The project area is a bit cramped and gibbon cages were built on a steep slope, difficult to climb to see them. Well, I know it isn’t a zoo but I would be better if old people like us could get to their cages more easier while listening to the volunteers giving information. I must say the volunteers at this project are very self sacrificing they came to nearly every visitors and present this great project. Not an easy job but they did very good job and I love to support such work. Remember that entering gibbon project is free but you may have to pay for national park entrance fee 100-200 bht each at the main entrance gate…

  2. What a wonderful place to spend the day with the family. My kids learned all about the Gibbon monkeys and will surely learn to appreciate the importance of protecting these fragile animals. Highly recommend this place for all families.

  3. Bring the children to Bang Pae Waterfall on weekend. We never know before that the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project is located here. The gibbon’s shouts very noisy and attracted us to see them. One friendly staff comes to children and give them good info. Give a few donation before walked up to the waterfall. Enjoyed weekend

  4. Bring the kids here for a nice day out. We had lots of fun and my kids learned about the project and care for these monkeys. Its free to get in but a donation helps.

  5. One of my best friend who lives in Phuket took me to this waterfall where we visited this Gibbon Project. There, we heard nothing apart from gibbon’s shouts which were very loud and attracted us to see them! A volunteer came to us giving very good information about the project and they have multilingual leaflet. We gave some money to support the project, then walked up to the waterfall. Good experience.

  6. I’m a sucker for a good cause and who doesn’t like monkeys? The Gibbon centre is located right next to one of Phuket’s best waterfalls, so a great option if you’re looking to do something different one morning/afternoon. The only qualm I have is that the national park fee you have to pay before you can get there, I think it’s now 200 baht for foreigners and about 20 baht for Thai’s… the double pricing just really nags me.
