It's amazing seeing the orangutan in the wild. But as usual in places like that I think they should be able to give much more information. Let us to know about their work. Or at least give information when you get there, like go straight here and wait until X time and there will be someone there to lead you... More

See orangatangs at their natural best!!! Truly was worth doing and being there for that small moment and to see them just be them selves not caged up priceless. The only thing I would say is listen to the park rangers and do as they ask. To be quite just for the small moment your there in your life is... More

You can easily reach the Semenggoh park by public bus from the Kuching centre. The cost is only 4 ringgits one way. The entrance fee for the park is 10 ringgits for non-Malaysians. All together under 20 ringgits - dirty cheap compared the tours charging almost 50 euros for the same experience. The guides at the park are very friendly... More

I would go to this attraction just for the walk into the attraction. The 'forest' area, sights and sounds are really good. The road leading to the observation area makes access easy for people with a walking disability. The Oran Utans are the star of the place and they did not disappoint. Great spot. Catch the bus to the attraction... More

This was a great experience being able to see orangutans come for some food. If you are lucky they will come out and you will be able to see them swing around and enjoy some fruit, but if they dont decide to come for food then you're out of luck. This is of course a good thing becuase it is... More

Not guaranteed to see the orang utan but it is good to know that this is a wild life instead of animals that is being kept in a cage for entertainment purposes. Make sure you wear comfortable foot wear as walking on gravel steps are required. My 3 years old daughter enjoyed it immensely.

We visited about a week ago. We got an Uber from Kuching for only 20RM so we set off at 8.30 instead of catching the 6.45am bus! As we arrived just as feeding had started they let our driver drive us right up to the gate (it's a long walk) we say the dominant male Ritchie & a mum &... More

Very good as the orangutans are amazing. You must understand also that sometimes the orangutans do not appear.

Took a while for the orangutans to come out, but when they did it was an amazing experience. Got to see the massive alpha male Ritchie plus Mina and her child Jubilee. Highly recommended.
