Not guaranteed to see the orang utan but it is good to know that this is a wild life instead of animals that is being kept in a cage for entertainment purposes. Make sure you wear comfortable foot wear as walking on gravel steps are required. My 3 years old daughter enjoyed it immensely.

We visited about a week ago. We got an Uber from Kuching for only 20RM so we set off at 8.30 instead of catching the 6.45am bus! As we arrived just as feeding had started they let our driver drive us right up to the gate (it's a long walk) we say the dominant male Ritchie & a mum &... More

Very good as the orangutans are amazing. You must understand also that sometimes the orangutans do not appear.

Took a while for the orangutans to come out, but when they did it was an amazing experience. Got to see the massive alpha male Ritchie plus Mina and her child Jubilee. Highly recommended.

It is a must to visit if you are in Kuching. The Orangutans are feeded two times per day and depending the season and the foos they can find in the forestm they would come or not , but it would be very unlikely that you can't see any. Remember to be quiet and respect them, no flash or noises.... More

Tours and taxis are expensive. We took an Uber there at a third of the cost of a regular taxi. The bus back to town was even cheaper at MYR4. Entry is MYR10 if you're a foreign visitor. We got there about 0830 and saw a mother and baby. However they were gone after about 30 minutes so worth getting... More

We thought the briefing just before 9am really interesting and informative and were glad they encouraged people to be silent. We saw two orang Utan at the feeding platform and it was great to see them interact with one another. The gallery with the history of the centre was also very interesting

The ranger who briefed us was very serious about safety and precautions, but some of the tourists were still lack of understanding and made loud noise while on the audience platform. Anyway, we were very fortunate to witness 7 orang utans at most at one time. They were all very active and full of vitality. Two pairs of mother-infants, some... More

We went in the morning. We were told that sometimes the orang utan won't show up. How lucky we were when 10 showed up!! They are beautiful! It opens up your eyes what the rangers do to help these orang utans. Love it!
