Semenggoh Orangutan Centre from Kuching

    What to Expect
    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.

    We went here during the month of June 2019. It was hot and humid, and I dripped with sweat, but it was worth every drop. Amazing creatures, beautiful giants!

    Please support this great cause, you should get to see Orangutans up close at feeding time as well as some in the distance. It's great to see them in a natural environment. I would recommend going in the morning.

    We went to the feeding time one morning and saw three Orangutans, including a 6 month old, who mostly clung to her mother. An older male was lurking nearby, but didn't come out while the visitors were there. The sanctuary rightly tries to limit human...More

    We are glad you had a wonderful time. Although during feeding time there are more Orangutans on the platform. May have been due to fruit trees season in the forest. It is a sanctuary here and they are free to go anywhere, sometimes Orangutans gets...More

    Came here hoping to catch a sight of the Orang Utans in their natural habitat. We were lucky as the fruiting season in the jungle was just over. So the Orang Utans tend to come out looking for food. The center was well organised with...More
