We were lucky to see 7 of them during the feeding time.. you stand on a zone with other tourists and watch them... do not really feel like they are in the wild but more like in a reserve. We visited in the afternoon and...More
We were lucky I think. Its the start of the fruiting season (October) and we were not aware this could be a problem - apparently your chances of seeing any Orangutan are much less. However, we ended up seeing 6 during the visit, 4 near...More
Driving from our hotel at the Imperial Riverbank to this destination took us over half hour with the help of Waze GPS. Our plan was to reach this forest reserve before the 9:00 am for the feeding time, and at around 8:45am the forest rangers...More
The centre let you know beforehand that they cannot guarantee that you will see any orang utans as they live in the forest and fend for themselves. We waited for an hour and thought we were going to be disappointed until along came a mum...More
This reserve is incredible to see the orangutans in the wild and with no captivity whatsoever. We were lucky enough to see 3 adults, one of which had a one month old baby! The information and knowledge provided is extremely interesting! Definitely recommend, however avoid...More
I came to Semenggoh by taxi from the Hilton Hotel in Kuching costing 150 RM return (the driver waited). The entry fee is 10 RM for adults which is cheap - in fact it felt too cheap and I wouldn’t have minded paying more! I...More
20 minutes easy drive out of Kuching.
Visit during feeding times (check web site) - when the wardens will call the orang utans and they will come for their favourite food
(banana and coconut)
Amazing to see them swing in and out, mums with baby...More
We arrived just before the scheduled veiwing time where the Orang Utans can choose to come on veiw or not, its their choice. We were lucky that despite a crowd of 50 or so trying to get as close as possible the Orang Utans still...More
Got to see two orangutans which is apparently unusual when it's raining. They are more likely to appear when its dry!
You get around 1 hour to see them and their are guides on hand to explain their habits etc.
We tied it in with...More
As of July 2019, the K6 bus route no longer exists but you can take the 3A bus from Kuching to get to Semenggoh. We did, and it dropped us off right at the entrance to the park. The ride took about an hour (left Kuching at... More
As of July 2019, the K6 bus route no longer exists but you can take the 3A bus from Kuching to get to Semenggoh. We did, and it dropped us off right at the entrance to the park. The ride took about an hour (left Kuching at 12:30pm, got to Semenggoh around 1:30pm) and cost RM 5 per person.
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.
