It was amazing to experience these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. It's always a bit of a gamble when it comes to seeing wild animals, but we were fortunate to see a number of Orangutan at the session we attended.

Semenggkok is a forest reserve partly used for rehabitation of domesticated wild life. In addition to orang utan, you can see hornbills, bears, crocodile and other animals. Animals here are feed and trained so that they can learn to get food from the forests when they are released.

Simply a must for visitors to Kuching to see these almost extinct creatures in the wild! One of the highlights of our trip.

On our fist full day in Kuching we booked a private tour to come to Semenggoh and go to a variety of other places. Upon arrival we joined a large group of people to listen to some poor guy (the feeder) attempt to tell everyone to not talk. Unfortunately there seemed to be a group of tourists who simply would...

Most of the time one of the females and her baby are on the road, so you can get pretty close for photo's. It very cheap - but has different prices for Malaysians and 'Foreigners'. You don't need a whole day there, its best to go for the morning feed and couple it with a visit to another nearby place... More

This is a reserve where the Orang Utans roam free in the forest. Some are captives relocated here, some are born right in Semenggoh. Its awesome to see these creatures up close, you get a sense of their power yet at the same time can feel their gentle nature. Don't go if its raining. Check when is the feeding times... More

The best place in Malay borneo to see the orang-utans. The guides were great and the drive through the "country" to get there is great

Really Nice place to see orang-outangs. We saw them near the parking, much more fun than on the feeding point. BUT... 3 big crocodiles, in 3 tiny cages with almost no water. They can't move ... What are they doing here with no space and no appropriate environment ?
