The Schmutzer Primate Center is one of the
largest in the world and houses many different primate species amongst
which gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans. The facilities have been
designed in innovative ways where the animals can decide if they want to
be seen or not and where natural food is growing in the enclosures, the
only place in the world where this is the case.
The primate center is constructed in such a way that it offers new
ways of looking at the primates. For instance a seven meter high bridge
crosses part of the gorilla enclosure, a very long tunnel guides you
through the world of orangutans and swinging canopy bridges provide you
with a feeling how it is to be living in the trees. In its short
existence the center reaped much praise for its very large enclosures
and natural design. Several young animals were born here already.
The center intends to contribute to the wild population by sending
groups of healthy apes and monkeys back to the wild to be released
there. The primate center opens seven days a week from 09.00 till 16.30.
Entrance costs 5.000 Rp for adults and 3.000 for children.
