Gorgeous grounds and well worth a visit even if you do not see the orangutans. We stayed at the feeding platform area for almost an hour but they were a no show. This is good news which means that they are finding lots of tasty foods in the forest on their own....which is the ultimate goal.

I visited this place just after the mandatory quarantine was lifted in early September. Firstly, they allow only 50 people in the feeding place due to SOP but there were only 2 people there when we went there. I really enjoyed my time there with my wife. The rangers and officers including Mr.Fattah were very friendly and nice. He spent a lot of time with us, explaining and showing us the way O.Utans live their lives. We were so lucky to meet Ganya, Sodoku, Analisa and her baby. We also tried to contribute in whatever way we could and hope that others would help to donate or adopt an orang utan. Please come and visit this place. It's amazing! P/s : we took a grab for below RM30 to come here from the waterfront. It's easy to get one.

This was simply excellent. We went when there were no other tourists there and the orangutans came very close - a truly incredible experience. Though I should note that I would advise against getting the tours for RM300. We got a grab for RM35 one way and entrance to the park is only RM20, you'll save a lot of money doing it D.I.Y.

Visited Semenggoh Wildlife Centre last week and 'greeted' by the residents here. There are 35 of them in the forest reserve area and they run freely in the forest reserve. You are lucky if they come and eat during the feeding time which will be around 10am-12pm and 3pm to 4pm daily. At first, they established as a rehabilitation centre, but know they are focusing on conservation and according to the staff only the first generation is rescued or surrendered while others are totally bred in the wild. It is good to see them run freely in the wild and able to find their food in the forest themselves as well as building their nest on the tree. You can spot a few old ones near the feeding area if you have sharp eyes.

One of our main reasons for coming to Borneo was to see the Orangutans and we were not disappointed. We visited in August and saw some. We ended up visiting the reserve twice as we were so amazed the first time that we wanted to try and see them again. We visited both times in the morning session which is 9-10. The staff are very friendly and their passion for the animals come across. They say it nice and clear that you are not guaranteed to see the animals and it is actually a good sign if they don't come as this means that they are finding food in the forest. Some of the keepers take you down to the feeding area'platform and you have to wait quietly and patiently. 2 small Orangutans came the first time we were there. They were climbing up the ropes. The second time we went there was four and one of them was one of the big males. It was such an incredible sight! The keeper was giving it banana but to see the male next to a human made you realise how big it was. When it gets to near 10 o'clock they ask you to leave the park. You have to exit the park and there is no where around to wait/sit to wait for the afternoon session. We got a taxi the first time which we paid over the odds for, I think it was around 190RM. The second time we got a grab which cost us 22RM each way. It took around 30 minutes to reach the reserve from the city center. Both our taxi and our grab drove us all the way up to the top of the entrance as it is a bit of a walk from the ticket booth. You pay to get in at the ticket booth and the cost is 10RM each. Amazing experience, We would love to come back again!
