Travelled a long way from the other side of the world in the hope of seeing an orangutan unfortunately as it was fruiting season we didn't see any despite staying all day. However this was made clear and it is a very informative and surreal place with some lovely nature trails to be taken.

We think this nature reserve is great. We've been here twice now. We feel privileged to be so up close to the orang-utans. We'll be back next year. April is a better time to visit than August. More sightings.

This nature reserve is great initiatives for both conserving the floras and faunas, too acts as a educational center for nature lovers. Sadly, during my visit, there were no orang utans available for viewing due to the fruiting season. Yet, the helpful and friendly park rangers are willing to share more insights about the wildlife reserve and get to let... More

We were very lucky to be able to see 3 orang utans. It's quite a wonder to see them interacting with one another in their natural habitat! They were not in their usual feeding area that day and we had to take a 500m trek through the jungle to see them. May not be so suitable for very young children... More

Orang-Utans are rarely showing up during fruit season (which was, however, announced already at the entrance).

So great to see orangutan in their habitat. Well organised and luckily not too many people there. It was a joy.

Although they warn you about it, it was still so disappointing when we've found that they will not come for food and we will not see them.

Unfortunately it was fruiting season when we went so the orang-utans had enough food and didnt visit the feeding areas. We went back two days later and still no luck, though 7 had visited in the afternoon once we had left. Disappointing, but thats nature. They are living in the wild not a zoo.

This is probably the closest any visitor can get to a troop of urang utans in its natural habitat. The feeding times of (9.00am - 10.00am) & (3.00pm - 4.00pm) daily are the best times to visit. The down side however is that sometimes there are no shows by the urang utans when they are full or have plenty to... More

Went to the Semenggoh Nature Reserve, the ranger gave 10 minute talked about to expected, how to behave if orang utan approach you. It did put me off a bit to hear but it is necessary for them to tell you for your own safety. Unfortunately, we didn't see orang utan, worthwhile to go but bear in mind that you... More
