What To Expect
Semenggoh Nature Reserve
Semenggoh Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre situated about a 30-minute drive from Kuching. Here the Orangutans are being nurtured to re-adapt themselves to the jungle life. It is also home to numerous baby orangutan, born in the wild to rehabilitated mothers, a further testament to the success of the program.
You will have to chance to observe the semi-wild orangutans coming out of the forest for the feeding time. Before arriving at the feeding platform, you will have a brief experience walking through the amazing untouched rainforest. As a result of its success, Semenggoh's role has changed and it is nowadays a center for the study of orangutan biology and behavior.
A visit to Semenggoh is a once a lifetime experience to see semi-wild orangutan, ranging from tiny infants and boisterous adolescents to dignified mature adults, enjoying life in a secure natural habitat.
This tour includes return transfers to your accommodation. You may choose a morning or afternoon departure.
Please note: the feeding sessions take place at approximately 9:00 to 9:30am and 3:00 to 3:30pm.

Beautiful and humbling experience for seeing the oerang oetans
Stunning experience! We saw 5 oerang oetans including a young babe (born in Jan-22) at the morning feeding. You can get really close and see them grab/eat fruit laid out by the staff. Staff btw are very friendly and really teach you about the the oerang oetans. Would definitely recommend: 10/10.

Excellent place. One can get Grab from City. Better to go in morning feeding time. There is shuttle from ticket area to feeding area. Charges 1RM/adult. January is not good month as it is fruit season hence Orangutans go deep in jungle. We did not see single one. Managementu tried hard to attract orangutan by calling and shouting.
Staff are dedicated and really care. The orangutans are well taken care of and at the same time they have their space in a natural environment. Wonderful place to visit. We engaged a cab who waited for us and we returned with him. It may get difficult to get a cab on the return otherwise.
Orangatan in the wild
This was part of an organised trip. If you can only park near the gate it is a 1.5km walk. The rangers call the orangatan after 9 so you can see them feeding at 10. We where very lucky to see one, however it is pot luck. Also if they spot one you need to move to the place quickly. It is not for the infirm or probables with walking. I would also recommend mosquito replant and long trousers with trainers. They are leeches and ticks in certain areas. It is worth the trip.
Not lucky to see orangutang
One can take grab from the city. After buying ticket, shuttle will take you to the feeding area. If you go in fruit season then orangutang go deep in jungle to feed them self, they do not come to feeding station. Ranger do their best to call them to feeding station. From shuttle drop off point take a little difficult path to viewing platform, to watch orangutang.
