Great half day

We watched the mother and baby feeding for half an hour. We took the taxi there and bus back. you cannot stay after the feeding session.

We went in the morning. Took a private bus to the park. Drove almost all the way into the viewing area. We were one of the first to arrive. Had a look around before the 9:00am feed. Eventually the hordes arrived in buses. The staff were on radios talking to each other about orang spotting in the jungle. Our guide... More

Enjoyed the orangutans travelled by local bus. We were lucky they showed up.The walk to the site is 30-20 mins depending on how fast you walk. The best part was seeing orangutans crossing the road.

A rare experience to visit the orang utans in their territory. Well managed and a worthwhile project to help protect this endangered species and to educate people about their plight. Close enough to Kuching to do in a morning or combine with other activities.

we just loved the fact it is not a ZOO, so animmals are free and at least semi-wild. got the chance to see a family with a baby (1 year old) and male oranghutan, obviously not fond of people and too much noise, throwing coconut to the ranger's head, but I thing not on purpose to hit his head, more...

Definitely a must-see for anyone traveling through Kuching. We went at the 15:00 feeding time, and we saw the large male, Ricki. Very impressive!

Seems like tons of people promote this site to be one of the best places to go, however, I had a more exciting experience in the Singapore zoo. It depends, whether the orangutans are hungry and therefore, there is no certainty of seeing one. We were pretty lucky to spot two on the way back (we were the only ones... More

Wow! What a morning. We saw 4 Orangutang's this morning and were thrilled to get so close and witness them feeding and interacting. They were simply amazing and performed like they knew we were watching. They were totally at ease and my eyes never drifted from their performance. It was also very pleasing to see the work of the park... More

Unlike many other asian tourist parks this place showed great respect for their animals. The park was a delight to visit and does its best to make the semi wild orangutans a tourist sight without effecting the animals

A well run place. The rangers are quite particular about explaining the rules (there are quite a lot) and make it clear that it is not a zoo, the orangutang are living in the wild, and they can't guarantee a sighting. We saw a mother and baby turn up at feeding time, and then another couple put on quite a... More
