Seeing these animals in the wild/semi-wild is an incredible experience and one I won't forget in a hurry. However it's worth noting that the park only opens at 2 if you want to see the afternoon feeding, and closes again at 4. Given there is a 30 minute or so walk to get to the feeding station, it doesn't leave... More

We visited this great place on the 16 May. The park is amazing with miles of land for the orangutqans to run freely as they please. We went for the morning feed and came away really disappointed as we didn't see any Orangs. This time of year there is a huge amount off fruit around so the need for the... More

We loved the Semenggoh nature reserve!! We were very lucky and got to see beautiful Minah and her baby and one of the boys!! So lovely to see Orangutans with plenty of space to roam and the ability to express their natural instincts. They are not forced to come to the feeding sessions as there are plenty of food sources...

The window to visit this place is 8 - 10 am to coincide with the feeding time. The park is closed after this time but the rangers may extend the time a little if orangutans are spotted as on occasions visitors may not see them at all. There is also a signboard to state this at the entrance. The park... More

We came during fruiting season, so it was hit or miss if we saw any orangutans, but after a 45 minute wait, one turned up and put on a bit of a show up & down the ropes & on the feeding platform. He stayed for about 20 mins then left slowly back to the jungle. The squirrels finished off... More

This trip was for my birthday and what a gift it was. There were orangutans all around us, I thought I'd "died and gone to heaven". Even the big Kahuna of them all Ritchie stopped by. So great to see a facility that is taking such great care of this magnificent species, letting tourists take a glimpse, should the apes... More

Very educational center for young and old. Very well kept and greatly conserve. Great place to view orang utan in the wild. The feeding session is something one should not miss. Do bring along your tele-photo lenses for better images. Avoid fruit season as the more readily available food in the wild, the least likely for u to see orang... More

We were informed that it is fruiting season now and chances to see orang utan are not guaranteed. We went to the morning session (9-10am) and were disappointed as there wasn't any hungry orang utan around. The ticket (RM5 for local) is valid if u wish to try ur luck in the afternoon session (3-4pm). We don't blame the park... More

Seeing the orangutans was a unique and lovely experience. We went in the morning slightly earlier than the 9am feeding time and there were already a couple of orangutans in the trees. We were lucky as on this day the feeding area was near the entrance and not down the path into the park in the normal designated feeding area.... More
