          For over 20 years, the wardens at Semenggoh Nature Reserve have been training young orangutans, who had been orphaned or rescued from captivity, how to survive in the wild. The success of this programme has left the surrounding forest reserve with a thriving population of healthy adolescent and young adult orangutans, who are now breeding in the wild. The programme has since been transferred to Matang Wildlife Centre, but Semenggoh Nature Reserve is still home to its successful graduates, semi-wild orangutans and their babies. They spend most of their time roaming the forest but frequently come back to the Centre for a free meal. If it is the fruiting season in the forest, some or even all of them may not come to feed. This in itself is a good sign and another step on the way to full rehabilitation.

          Semenggoh Wildlife Centre Orangutans
          An excellent afternoon at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre which is a value for money half day trip from Kuching. We were greeted at our hotel by our guide Josef who is a great character and he informed us very well on the bus trip to the park. Incredibly we managed to see a total of 8 orangutang including 2 alpha males and a mum and baby! Humbled to see these gentle giants in their natural environment.

          A great way to see wild life of Sarawak
          The dolphin watching mangrove boat tour in Kuching, Sarawak, was with Ooo Haa travels. Duration of the tour is 4 hrs with pick up and drop off time. The actual tour on the water is not more than 1 to 1.5 hrs. I felt it was too short, as spotting dolphins need a long time. The guide Mr Hanafie was very knowledgeable about the nature, Sarawak's history and about the lives of the village dwellers. He was punctual, kind, polite and friendly. A delicious, packed lunch was served. I saw dolphins briefly (I wish we could have stayed longer as it was too brief), saltwater crocodiles, mud skippers, proboscis monkeys, blue crabs (too small to see clearly from a distance. It was a great trip. Well organised with great attention paid to the safety and wellbeing of the passengers. I also got to see the surrounding countryside and small villages with houses built on stilts. I can recommend this tour to anyone who visits Kuching. However, as a solo traveller it is expensive as I had to pay the cost of two passengers to go on the trip. But I found it well worth it.

          Rich experience 2D1N with wonderful guides!
          A very good company to organize your visit to a Longhouse in Batang Ai. We had the first contact with David via mobile, he was very available at all times, both to help us decide the type of trip (in the end 2D1N) and later with the payment (the banking application gave us some problems and he was patient to work it out). And we were so lucky to share our experience with the extraordinary Mas and Deelaila... What can I say, the experience itself is absolutely unique, the trip to the house is a gift for the senses, the peace of the river, the green horizon ... Immersing yourself in the house, but beyond that, in their lives, is fascinating. But if you also have the pleasure of doing it with this father and daughter couple, who more than guides felt like friends... We feel very lucky. I know that we will carry those days in the middle of the jungle with us forever. Thank you for taking care of us, for the laughter and hospitality. See you soon!

          Amazing 2d1n with Jo in Bako
          We did the 2 day 1 night trip to Bako National Park, and our tour guide for the experience was Jo. Throughout all of our travels, Jo was arguably one of the best guides we’ve ever had and he made our experience so special. He is extremely knowledgable, is a true professional and helped us spot all the wildlife we were hoping to see. He went the extra mile (waking up early etc) to ensure we’d get a glimpse of Bako’s amazing wildlife and nature. He also takes some great photos and makes some great videos which you can watch afterwards! Highly recommend booking this tour company if you’re looking to do Bako National Park, and I can imagine other trips are just as good!

          Long scenic drive to the longhouse - insist on a receipt
          We were 4 adults . We took an air conditioned taxi that cost us 180 ringgit total with an English speaking driver booked by the hotel . Value for money as the trip went through dense forests. They have preserved one longhouse with a few skulls courtesy ancient headhunters . There are some rooms in the longhouse which is modernised with internet connectivity, TV, electricity and all modern amenities offering home stays ( not worth it) . The Bidayun tribe members can be chatted with , mostly children and retirees. There is an entrance fee of 10 ringgit for which we were given no receipts or tickets . ( we were told entrance fee was 8 ringgit by our hotel staff after calling the longhouse!)The toilets could be better maintained .

          Wetland Wildlife Cruise
          We took this excellent tour on 7th February 2023, tour guide Mr. Joseph was very informative , jovial and flexible. We were picked from our hotel and this tour takes around 4 to 5 hours to explore the wetland and wildlife in Sarawak. Our boat Captain Mr. Wan Amin is a very knowledgeable man, he shared a lot of information about the habitat at the wildlife. We were so lucky to see the dolphins but just for a few seconds. Captain also patiently waited for dusk to fall and showed us the crocodiles and a few reflection of some crocodiles red eyes. Probocis monkeys too were spotted in the trees. We did see fireflies as well. Overall i highly recommend this tour for those who love nature. Not forgetting to mention Mr. David and his team are very attentive and responsive to any enquiry. Highly recommend you to book with Ooh Haa Travels. Thumbs up to all of you.

          Good tour agency to consider
          Hi I took this package tour in November 2022 and just came back. The tour itself is ok but we wasted one hour due to fetching of another group of passengers making the duration at Sarawak Cultural Village very rushed. Instead of 4.5hrs I only had 3.5hrs there. The Semenggoh Wildlife Centre is a hit and miss thing as it is nature reserve so I was lucky to see 3 during fruiting season. The one thing that I liked and wanted to compliment was David's arrangement for Semenggoh Wildlife Centre. Because it was heavy thunderstorm in the afternoon, he arranged for us to join another group the next day morning for the wildlife centre and arranged for someone to drive us back while the rest of the tour moved on to Longhouse. Overall am glad to visit and see the place that I want to see. I hope the agency will consider providing more packages with different options for more mix and match options and hopefully will include options for airport pick-up as well. In that way, someone with a short itinerary can just use the agency for all its tour and transportation needs.

          5D4N Sarawak tour
          We just did 4 days of Borneo tour including a night spent in a traditional longhouse and two nights in Bako park. One of the most amazing experiences in Malaysia. The guides who works with David (we were with Musa and Alex) are truly kind and passionate people. Besides, they have deep knowledge of the area.. surely they are part of the journey. Every organizational aspect were also perfectly managed. Marco R.

          Amazing experience
          The trip was amazing for different thing. First the respect of the wildlife « if you want to be sur to see animals, you can go in a zoo ». The trip is very well organized and we have seen different ecosystem, mangrove, coral, birds, turtle. Second, Tom and the boatman was very kind, the never hesitat to share their knowledge. Thank you very much !

          7 nights Sarawak Tour
          We had an enjoyable specially curated 7nights tour of Mulu and surrounding of Kuching including Semangoh, Bako and a long house visit with lunch. The guides for Mulu ATeng & Musa for Kuching are excellent. They sure know the place well and were with us on all the hiking trails. Both hotels Marriott in Mulu and Waterfront in Kuching were great. Highly recommended agent for Sarawak. Ooo Haa aka cheers to the team!

          Fabulous flexible customised tours for 4 Adults and 2 children over 4 days
          David and his team were fabulous. We didn’t get to meet David but he checked in with us regularly to ensure everything was going well. Joseph was our guide throughout and was informative, funny and flexible. We were picked up from airport later at night and taken to our accommodation. Next morning we went to Semarang wildlife reserve and saw 12 Orangutang 👍. After this we did a city tour before heading back to our accommodation. I’d unfortunately lost my credit card in an ATM and both Josef and David couldn’t have been more helpful in trying to contact the bank to retrieve it. Next day we headed back into town and went to the amazing Borneo Museum ( well worth a visit) before exploring more of the town and then going on sunset cruise. Josef then took us to a local restaurant where we enjoyed tasting some of the local dishes. Next morning we were due to go to the island and see the turtles as well as snorkel and check out the Irrawaddy dolphins however the weather turned just before we were about to get on boat. We were immediately offered the afternoon dolphin spotting and river cruise to see crocodiles , probiscus monkeys and fireflies. We were taken back to our accommodation but via a tour of the local village. The evening tour was lovely and although no Irrawaddy dolphins were spotted we saw probiscus monkeys and fireflies. On our last day we went to the Cultural Village which was amazing. It was great to have Josef as a guide as he knew many of the people in the various houses. The performance at 11:30 was brilliant. We spent 5.5 hours at the village then Josef dropped us back at our accommodation for a few hours before picking us up and taking us to the airport. Ooh Haa were professional, flexible and responsive to our needs at all times. Highly recommend

          Excellent wetland wildlife cruise in Santubong Kuching
          It was a very interesting trip to explore the wetland and wildlife in Sarawak . We didn’t manage to spot any dolphins, but we had a close encounter with the proboscis monkeys. We saw a big crocodile and reflection of some crocodiles’ red eyes. We also saw the fireflies - Christmas tree. Many blue crabs were spotted . Our guide Mr. Ben and captain Mr Wan Amin are very knowledgeable and shared lots of good information with us . We learned a lot from them about the wildlife . I highly recommend the trip .

          Excellent experience
          Excellent experience with wonderful tour guide Mr. David and his partner. They were very helpful and flexible. We spot pod of dolphins swimming around before they took us to the wetland and the bird Island. The Satang Island itself are so beautiful as the water are pretty clear. Lots of friendly fishes. We were very lucky to have a perfect weather the whole trip.

        Was very disappointing: saw 1 orang hutan, but it was fed like in a zoo. So quite fake. The information boards and their approach also showed that they are not really interested in preparing the animals for wild life again.
        It is fair to say that we have previously visited a similar rehabilitation center in Sumatra where they worked much more professionally than here: here it was more with > 50 tourists on a plateau watching from a distance á la zoo. Shame
