Suggest you take a taxi (only 60ringit) as the feeding station is very close to the car park and only one orrangutan chose to come and feed. Everyone stands quietly at a distance just watching.... Easy drive, easy walk not a lot happening.

We went during the fruiting season and did not see any of the orangutans during the first feeding, but came back in the afternoon and saw 9! Both times, the rangers did a fantastic job with attracting the orangutans to the feeding area. A few tips to share with other (budget) travelers: 1) It is really easy to go by... More

Wanna see orangutans in nature? This is the place!! See mamas with their babies, feeding just yards from you! There is a small hike involved, but not too taxing. Rangers are on hand to instruct you on safety, and to offer educational info. We were lucky enough to see the alpha male, just 20 feet away, sitting calmly, enjoying his... More

It was a great experience but it is advisable to check with their facebook page before u pay your visit. There are seasons where u will not be able to see those orang utans.

One of top places of interests in Sarawak where we see Orang Utans closely. There are other wild animals and protected species where they live freely without cages or fences. This place is not far from the city and easy access by public transport.

This a great place to see orang utans up close. Kids loved it. Was an easy outing for them. No long walks and plenty of shade while watching the orang utans do their thing. Very easy to do without a guide. We paid a taxi to take us there and bring us back to our hotel in Kuching. It cost... More

Would 100% recommend visiting Semenggoh. My partner and I hired a scooter for 40 MYR and visited the Fairy & wind caves in the morning and then went to Reserve for 2pm. For locals it is 5MYR and for foreigners 10MYR (which is a bargain). We couldn't find anywhere that said you could do the reserve without a tour but... More
