I have just returned from Bako Nat Park and Semenggoh Orang Utan Reserve and took the public bus for both. Admittedly the info on how to get there was sketchy and varied at best. So to the best of my ability, here is the definitive...More
I visited this attraction on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Kuching. Reception at my hotel organised the trip, admission and return for 35 ringgits. Be there for the first feeding around 9am, be very quiet, take lots of photos with a good...More
Really a good experience, to see orangutan in semi freedom, an endangered species. The rehabilitation center, just near Kuching, let you observe orangutan during her semi freedom life and during their fruit lunch.
They came from the forest, protected forest, after a human/orangutan call, to...More
I was suggested to visit to the centre by the hotel operator, it was a nice trip..manage to see few orang utan along the session. they are verry frendly to people. The feeding session also was great event, not many of them turn up for...More
I'm not sure how big the sanctuary was as we got there a little too late (thanks to the GPS!). The feeding place was closed for visitor after the feeding time. Be sure to be there before the feeding time but I was incredibly there...More
We actually went here in April 2010, but it would not let me go back that far!
We went to both Semenggoh and Sepilok and Semenngoh totally knocks Sepilok off it's perch.
We did not expect much as you only ever see the travel shows...More
This is a great place to visit, but getting here is the most tricky part. If you opt for bus, there is minimal information in Kuching as to where to catch the bus from. Also, the bus will drop you about 1km from the centre...More
Took a bus from Kuching RM7 return and paid for enterance fee of RM3. Feeding commenced at 9am following a brief safety talk by the Rangers. Event lasted 1 hour and was really captivating. Unfortunately, groups can be large and thus less considerate people can...More
Signed up for this tour package - Semonggok & Anah Rais Longhouse Visit at the cost of RM130.00 Nett Per Person.
Read the great reviews here but were quite disappointed with the outcome.
Reached the place at around 9am. Saw around 4 orang utans after...More
We went to 3:00pm feeding - couldn't face an early start after a long flight the previous day. It's only 3 ringgits admission although there's no guarantee you will actually see anything. The Ranger gives a briefing (stay away from the orangutans, don't feed them,...More
A lot is dependent upon the child. Recognize that it will be hot and humid with walking required from the car park to the assembly area and probably deeper into the jungle. The trails in the jungle are uneven and it seemed... More
A lot is dependent upon the child. Recognize that it will be hot and humid with walking required from the car park to the assembly area and probably deeper into the jungle. The trails in the jungle are uneven and it seemed like there was a mad rush from the 120 or so guests to get from one spot to another. The rangers request that guests be quiet so as to not spook the orangutans that might be coming for breakfast. We did not realize that time of year plays an important part in whether one appears. At the end of the fruiting season, the animals can get their fruit naturally and are less apt to come to "breakfast." We were there at the end of the fruiting season in late February/early March. I have no idea when it begins. That said, it was the highlight of our visit to Kuching.
