    Semenggoh Nature Reserve
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Semenggoh Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre situated about a 30-minute drive from Kuching. Here the Orangutans are being nurtured to re-adapt themselves to the jungle life. It is also home to numerous baby orangutan, born in the wild to rehabilitated mothers, a further testament to the success of the program.  You will have to chance to observe the semi-wild orangutans coming out of the forest for the feeding time. Before arriving at the feeding platform, you will have a brief experience walking through the amazing untouched rainforest. As a result of its success, Semenggoh's role has changed and it is nowadays a center for the study of orangutan biology and behavior. A visit to Semenggoh is a once a lifetime experience to see semi-wild orangutan, ranging from tiny infants and boisterous adolescents to dignified mature adults, enjoying life in a secure natural habitat. This tour includes return transfers to your accommodation. You may choose a morning or afternoon departure. Please note: the feeding sessions take place at approximately 9:00 to 9:30am and 3:00 to 3:30pm.

Excellent place. One can get Grab from City. Better to go in morning feeding time. There is shuttle from ticket area to feeding area. Charges 1RM/adult. January is not good month as it is fruit season hence Orangutans go deep in jungle. We did not see single one. Managementu tried hard to attract orangutan by calling and shouting.

Dear Sir/Madam, We are disappointed that your experience was not pleasant. Semenggoh has always delighted many visitors. The objective of the center is rehabilitate and release Orangutans back to the wild. They do come back during feeding time but when they don't return to the center, they Orangutans have adapted and are able to feed themselves in the forest. We hope to see you again.

This was part of an organised trip. If you can only park near the gate it is a 1.5km walk. The rangers call the orangatan after 9 so you can see them feeding at 10. We where very lucky to see one, however it is pot luck. Also if they spot one you need to move to the place quickly. It is not for the infirm or probables with walking. I would also recommend mosquito replant and long trousers with trainers. They are leeches and ticks in certain areas. It is worth the trip.

We are glad you have enjoyed the guided walk towards feeding platform. Must have been after the rain as we don't encounter leeches on the trail. So sorry you were able to only witness 1 orangutans , although this indicates a successful rehabilitation program , they are able to care for them selves in the forest. Due to visitors patronage the center has achieved their objective. Please visit us again or try Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary in Sandakan. Stay safe & healthy Sincerely, Edwin

Staff are dedicated and really care. The orangutans are well taken care of and at the same time they have their space in a natural environment. Wonderful place to visit. We engaged a cab who waited for us and we returned with him. It may get difficult to get a cab on the return otherwise.

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your tour. Next visit please try Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary in Sandakan, Sabah. Semenggoh Rangers truly made the center a remarkable Orangutan sanctuary. If you like Semenggoh center , you will love Sepilok Sanctuary. We look forward to hosting you soon for another fantastic experience. Have a pleasant day.

One can take grab from the city. After buying ticket, shuttle will take you to the feeding area. If you go in fruit season then orangutang go deep in jungle to feed them self, they do not come to feeding station. Ranger do their best to call them to feeding station. From shuttle drop off point take a little difficult path to viewing platform, to watch orangutang.

Truly not in the days plans as we strive to provide clients with the best experience at Semenggoh Orangutan Center. The center has since see many Orangutans graduates , thanks to a successful programme that started since the 1980's. If there are fruits deep in the forest , sometimes they don' come to the feeding platform. A indication the Orangutans have adapted well into their natural habitat. We wish to see you again on your next visit.

It wasn't a good experience, we didn't see any orangutans, I suppose that it was because of the fruit season, but I don't know, so don't go when is fruit season because you will be as dissapointed as us.

Despite the heavy rain we were lucky enough to see 3 of these amazing “old men of the jungle” in a semi wild environment. We could have just sat and watched them for hours however viewing time is understandably controlled so that visitor impact is minimised.

Now a have an even greater respect for all efforts to protect the habitat of these wonderful creatures to ensure they don’t disappear from the planet.

We spend about 2 hours just immersed into the environment and enjoyed the orangutan activities. The guide actually know the orangutan by names and we further can narrate the relation which give us better in depth knowledge of their naturally habitat. Was told that there are days when none will appear so we count ourselves lucky to see a whole family that day. Definitely a location not to be missed which in Kuching

Possibly the highlight of our trip to Borneo. An incredible experience - one that I would recommend everyone does. A really great interaction with the animals. The carers are really conscious about keeping the animals separate from human contact. The animals aren't wild, but they clearly aren't domesticated either - they are free to come and go as they please, and have full reign over a huge jungle with no limits. This was really important for us because we hate zoo's and fake wildlife experiences - this is far from that. 100% would recommend and go again.

We went to the centre for the afternoon feed, and it did not disappoint. We had tried to see Orangs in the wild, but had failed and so this was our last chance. As the rangers called out, a mother and baby came to feed and stayed for almost an hour. Excellent experience
