A conservation effort for orang utans, this reserve is doing its best to get them back in the wild. A small trek through the jungle to see a wooden podium some distance away where the orang utan may come to feed on the fruits that the ranger has kept. A beautiful sight to see their nests on trees and the... More

Please note the nature reserved shuts between 12:00 - 14:00 which is not displayed on any website! Excluding the above - if you do not visit Semenggoh whilst in Borneo you have missed something really special We went to the afternoon feeding for the Orangutan and were lucky to see 5 including a 3 month old baby They were literally...

Visiting this rehabilitation centre without expecting to see any orangutans (as everybody told us it's highly likely that they won't come) we had low expectations. It turned out that three mothers appeared for the feeding carrying their babies. It was just amazing to see them in such a natural and undisturbed environment as they are not held in cages and...

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.
