    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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
