We visited the park with a private tour but you can easily take the bus and do it yourself. We saw two mother with their youngsters and also three seperate orang utans. The park is easily accessible and the apes are already visible very close from the parking area. An easy tour for everyone and not far from kuching! Not... More

It was drizzling the morning we visited Semenggoh. We had been told that with Fruit season almost over, we would certainly see the Orangutans during feeding time. So we fortunate indeed. At the briefing area, there were 4 with Ritchie, the oldest Orangutan hogging the feeder attention. We then followed the briefer into the jungle to view more animals. This... More

Seeing the Orangutan's in a "wild nature" environment is definitely something ticked off my bucket list. We saw and photographed 8 of them for over an hour. 2 (a mother and her teenage baby) wondered through the crowd. The ended up asleep in the open roof rafters of the large shelter from were you watch them feeding! If you are... More

I went without any great expectations, and before reading any trip advisor reviews, so I didn't know what exactly I would encounter here. It wasn't a disappointment, but it was not exactly thrilling or inspiring either. I did get to see three orangutans, including one building a nest for her grandson and herself, near the first assembly point. Another came... More

We were lucky as after waiting for more than 15 min, 1 female orang utan came out to get her food. Although only 1 came out, we felt happy to see her funny gestures. Out of surprise she pee in front of all the tourist. Everyone laughed. She ate a lot. It is nice to visit Semenggoh Nature Park to... More

We were here by Dec 2011. We went by early morning. We were told the feeding time start by early morning but still have to depend on luck. As we entered into the park,the feeding started already. We saw the mother-daughter Orang Utan coming then an male orang utan is following. We were lucky enough to see this. They were... More

A short ride from Kuching to the reserve. We were lucky to see six orang-utans including the dominant male and a baby. The animals are living wild but still rely on humans for food. Lovely to see the animals being protected and living with limited assistance from the park authorities

Upon arrival for the afternoon feeding there were 4 orangutans around the briefing area...they were incredible to see. No animals came for the feeding at the station so that of course was a bit disappointing but since they are semi-wild there is not controlling it. We did get to watch the 4 for almost 40 minutes so my advice is... More

I can't even describe how wonderful the experience of seeing these magnificent creatures so close was. On arrival we where greeted by Richie the alpha Male having some fruit on the1st feeding platform. Closely followed by a mother and her baby. We where lucky enough to see about 6 or 7 orangutans during the morning feeding session. We planned to... More

Take the bus from Kuching (3rm) for one hour to get to the centre. Walk a short walk for 15 min to get to the feeding area. Last bus back leaves at 16.00, don't miss it! We went there for the afternoon feeding at 15.00, but arrived about 14.15, and by that time one female and a baby was already... More
