          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.

          Husband and wife holidaing in Kutching , took a ride down the river in the e enj g to see the sites. We had a running commentary and live music. There were also a few dancers later in the 90 minutes voyage . Helpful staff - got an orange juice . The views of tne buildings and sites were okay; the river however is filthy . A never ending flow of rubbish passing you by in muddy waters .

          Day trip to Sepilok Orang Utan, Labuk Probiscos, Sun Bears and Borneo Handicraft centre.
          The Labuk Bay Probiscos was worthwhile visiting and watching the feeding. Our driver Mr Farhan (+60 11-2532 2699) was very professional, friendly and accomodating.

          Very enjoyable visit and we went away understanding the different ethnic groups and cultures
          The guide was fantastic. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very articulated. He made the visit so enjoyable and it was wonderful to see all the staff enjoying what they are doing. Certainly recommend this and special mention to Papoi ( not sure if I got it correctly but we joked that his name is similar to Popeye) We know that he is half Bajau.

          A little disappointed to what we were expecting due to nursery being closed
          Lovely walk through the forest Great conservation work in their semi nature environment Feeding is on a table that you watch from distant At the time of visiting we had to wear face masks due to possibility of contamination The path down to the nursery was cut off due to fallen tree so we couldn’t access that which was disappointing Then after watching them feed that was the end and exited to see the sun bears which was lovely

          A must do in Kota Kinabalu
          Highly recommend this tour - transfers to/from our hotel in Kota Kinabalu were on time in a clean and comfortable vehicle. Upon arrival organised into groups with a local guide (descendent from one of the indigenous tribes) to learn more about the 5 tribes of Sabah. Throughout the tour learnt about the long houses, making clothes, food, rice wine, starting a fire (without matches). The most fun was the trampoline in the long house and meeting a chief (descendent of a headhunter). Entertainment with local music and dance. Prior to leaving a cooked lunch (for those on the morning tour). Highly recommended for all visitors no matter the age.

          An Unforgettable Experience
          This was a wonderful day. I had the best guide ever. My guide was Antoni. He was very knowledgeable and gave me tips on how to take pics of the Orangutans. he made sure I was in the right place to see them when they come to feed. I got great pictures. When we went to the Culture Center, he explained all of the exhibits in each of the houses, and told me about his childhood experiences using many of the tools that we saw. I highly recommend this experience and I hope you get Antoni as your guide. Also he is a great picture taker!!

          Beautiful creatures great project
          Such a great place, the work they undertake to protect the species is fantastic far more than a centre. Learn around the work / the project and the care that goes in to this program. We were lucky enough to get close to a min inquisitive mother and baby. Such beautiful animals. Wear grippy shoes as the boardwalk can become skippy with humidity and the moss on floor

        Very disappointing visit. Whilst there is no guarantee of seeing the gorgeous orangutans we sit through a 20 minute briefing on the do’s and dont’s and then it falls flat because no orangutan in site. Having been to Sepilok we felt this was a waste of time and money. All there was, was a small presentation video room and a few photos - not even a shop to buy stuff, though there was a stall seller in car park. They should make this a more interesting centre if you are unable to see an orangutan. Felt so flat and will not go again.

        Dear Sir, Madam, Good Day I am very sorry for your disappointment. Semenggoh Center has been establish since the 1980's , dedicated to rehabilitating Orangutans. having visitor such as your good self contributes to the upkeep of this center. We are truly sorry they were no Orangutans although the Fruit Buffet was set up daily. As the orangutans mature from the rehabilitation program , they are release to the Semenggoh Forest Reserve. Freely to roam the forest canopy and return to the center for a fruit buffet. Fruit trees in the forest with it's scents of different fruit trees may have the Orangutans swinging from tree to trees searching for the fruit. On your next trip to Borneo , please visit Sandakan . Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. We look forward to serve you again.

        Dear Sir / Madam The weather has been unpredictable these days. It was Heat Wave the previous week and suddenly this week raining. Inspite of the rain , there were still some Orangutans to observe. Thank you for making the journey and visiting them. It is through your visits the center is able to sustain and maintain the orangutans. They are easily dependent on humans. Hence the Rangers go to work and bring them out of their old habits, some are rescued Orangutans , captive and even relocated cases. The center is dedicated to protecting them and returning them back to the wild. If in any change there are no Orangutans to observe t the center , this is a good sign as the Orangutans are independent and have establish a territory to call home. Once again from all of us at Magunatip Holidays saying Thank You for your visit. V/R , Edwin

        The park if home to many rehabilitated orangutans who now call this place home. Given it's been established for so long they are now breeding and having their own offspring. We were super lucky to see the orangutans - 6 in total. One solo near one of the feeding platforms, then a group of 4 which included a mother with a tiny baby as well is 2 older siblings who were all hanging out together and then finally a large male who was really close to the road. The ranger fed him various fruits to keep him occupied while we all snapped shots and then he was finally off.
        This was a highlight for us on our trip to Borneo - be aware though that there is a degree of commercialism here with many taking the chance to visit

        Stunning experience! We saw 5 oerang oetans including a young babe (born in Jan-22) at the morning feeding. You can get really close and see them grab/eat fruit laid out by the staff. Staff btw are very friendly and really teach you about the the oerang oetans. Would definitely recommend: 10/10.

        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

        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.

        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.

        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.
