Felt like a tourist trap. Should not have gone here on a sunday in fruit season: a bunch of families with noisy kids and no Orang Utang hungry enough to show up. Waste of time and money. Poor and shabby infrastructures too!

Well worth the visit. Managed to see four Orangutans, the adults and one baby. Feeding time 9 to 10. I used Uber to get there and a public bus to get back to Kuching. Entry MYR10 so great value.

We visited this place with our family. It was good experience. There so many orangutangs. But you should be careful because sometimes they want to go too close. We had an accident when one big orangutang came to shop and we had to run. The stuff was warning us and helped to escape. Only one member of stuff was made... More

Absolutely Brilliant we had already been to the other orangutang reserve in Borneo and this one is smaller but was so much better, we saw about 6/7 females some with their baby's, and we where lucky enough to see the dominant male Ritchie. Guides where happy to answer all questions and made you feel safe 100% recommend if your in... More

We arrived here in the late afternoon, just before the 3pm feeding. Excellent opportunity to see semi-wild orang utangs, but the trails in the rest of the park are a bit neglected.

Great visit here, the park rangers take you to one of the feeding stations once they have confirmation of an Orangutan nearby. Got to see a mother with 4 month old and then another mother with a month old baby. There was another Orangutan nearby as you could see the trees moving but it did not come into view. The... More

Incredible experience! Saw 5 orang-utans, 3 adults and 2 babies. Easy to get there. Get the number 6/k6 bus from bus stop two in town. Bus leaves about 7am and 1pm. Much better to do morning visit as you have a better chance of seeing the orang-utans. Bus costs rm 2. It takes about an hour to get there. You... More

Quite and experience to see these beautiful creatures come out the tropical forrest. Impressive creatures. We saw 2 mothers with children. You can never be sure how many monkeys you will see.....nothing much to see or do except for the orangutans. Don't bother booking a tour, just grab a bus or Uber and come during feeding time. There is a... More
