Wow, what a fantastic visit. You can drive up there or take a tourbus, which allows you to park closeby. I took the publicbus from Kuching, it takes about an hour and then you have to walk about 15min till you get to the platform....More
Went to the orang-utan sanctuary on Malaysia day and was pleasantly surprised that it was free entry (you can leave donations to help the sanctuary)! You can get there for cheap using the K6 public bus at 7.15 am, from the main bus stop in...More
We saw 8 of the 30 orangutans in natural surroundings. Well worth the entry fee (if paid at the gate rather than a tour company at a fraction of the price). Suggest wearing long sleeved clothing and wearing insect repellent as "bitey insects" made excursion...More
We visited Semenggoh last week, it was the highlight of our visit to Kuching.
Easy access via Grab,(equivalent of Uber). Less than $4Aus entry.
We saw 4 large orangutans within 15 minutes of arriving. Wild creatures in their natural habitat, what a privilege to see....More
So amazing to see these beautiful creatures up close and personal. Alpha male, mama and baby came while we were there. Super friendly ranger who told us about the animals. We used Grab to pick us up and then the driver just stayed for an...More
We were very lucky to see 3 Orang Utans at the morning feeding session. One was in the trees behind the car park when we arrived!
The other 2 were a Mother (Selina) and her 2 year old SEM who were at the feeding station...More
What a great experience! This is one of the few places in the world where you can see semi-wild oranutans (meaning they have either been born in the nature reserve or rescued). Since it is not a zoo and there are no fences, the orangutans...More
throughly enjoyable experience visiting the reserve, although the orangutans. aren't completely in the wild, its still wonderful to visit and see what has been done to support such projects. The cost is really nothing for the experience and money going to a worthwhile project for...More
Very positive experience. I am a primatogist and support rehab projects which actually work and are not just a draw for tourist pennies. The centre here is amazing. Listen to the full briefing. The needs of the orangs come first, as should be, these are...More
Just remember when going here the orangutans have been rehabilitated so aren't wild. If you are looking for the total in the wild experience you will be disappointed. If you want to see these rare creatures in a natural setting and support the rehabilitation programme...More
A lot is dependent upon the child. Recognize that it will be hot and humid with walking required from the car park to the assembly area and probably deeper into the jungle. The trails in the jungle are uneven and it seemed... More
A lot is dependent upon the child. Recognize that it will be hot and humid with walking required from the car park to the assembly area and probably deeper into the jungle. The trails in the jungle are uneven and it seemed like there was a mad rush from the 120 or so guests to get from one spot to another. The rangers request that guests be quiet so as to not spook the orangutans that might be coming for breakfast. We did not realize that time of year plays an important part in whether one appears. At the end of the fruiting season, the animals can get their fruit naturally and are less apt to come to "breakfast." We were there at the end of the fruiting season in late February/early March. I have no idea when it begins. That said, it was the highlight of our visit to Kuching.
