- The whole 4 acres is surrounded by perimeter fencing and the gates are locked everyev ening for your safety.
- At night the whole place is well lit.
- There are 3 fulltime caretakers on the premises and they are always ever willing to assist.
- The few wild animals in the area are monkeys and the occasional wild boars that come out at night to scavenge. They stay well away from the fencing thus are hardly seen.
- The kampong is just across the river, meaning outside help is just minutes away.
