Oranoetangs

We saw a oranoetang and his grandma. Luckly friendly oranoetangs. After that we had the luck to see a female and baby oranoetang. The crocodils are located in smale cage.

We saw orangutans, so I was more than satisfied. However, there is no guarantee that you'll see any orangutans since this is not a zoo and they do live in the wild. This rehabilitation centre was built for a good cause, to preserve the wildlife in Borneo. I would strongly recommend to go here, even if you're not guaranteed to... More

We saw at least six tamed orangutan during the feeding session. These are very strong animal capable of tearing up human despite their rather docile look. I would definitely run for my life if i see one in the wild. There is this one old orangutan named Ritchie, he actually tear up a coconut in front of us and crack... More

Three and a baby Orang-utan on view during our visit. Two males in the area where the crocodiles were housed a small one and another huge one. The biggest male apparently was not the troop alpha male so if that was the case the "boss" male must be gigantic. Both males were feeding from fruit put out for them, each... More

We were lucky enough to see 2 orangutangs each with their babies. I would highly recommend this place as it's a completely natural environment but please be aware you may not see any animals but the guides do make this very clear. The park rangers do everything they can to attract the animals to the feeding platforms. It is super... More

This is a fantastic visit, we saw 6 orang-utan when we were there and one walked right by us. A few tips though for your visit. Be early so you get a good view Be quiet, no shouting or sudden noises No red, most of the orang-utan were recused after their parents were shot so red makes them think of... More

A must to see attraction in Kuching. Location is accessible by public transportations. Just bare in mind the feeding time.

We saw two orangutans, a mother and her little baby. They climbed down the rope and they wait on the tree for the rangers to give them food. It was a really nice expirence to see these animals. Do not forget to bring your mosquito protection as there is lots of them!

Easy day trip. Saw 14 orangs and that's why we came. Huge male Ritchie was a behemoth. Females with toung and much amazing flora. Bring fluids as they where out when we got there. Recommend morning feeding. If you like plenty big apes go
