We visited this place during morning feeding and saw 5 orang utans. As they are semi-wild they may decide not to come to the feeding area for food. Very much prefer this than keeping them captive.

A trip to Semenggoh is a must-do during your time on Borneo. These incredible orangutans are semi-wild and feedings occur twice daily. It is a special way to get close enough to view the orangutans. Make sure you do your research before coming out here...More

We visited for morning feeding time and were lucky enough to see 4 Orangutangs, including one of the bigger males (not the big boss). It was completely fascinating and so amazing to be so close to them in the (relative) wild. A must-see.
