The orang utans here are rehabilitated....so they may be off in the jungle and not about at the two feeding sessions in the day. We struck lucky with a solid hour of orang utan watching...3 younger ones who played, one even practising nest building, and a mum and baby who were amazing to watch. We have booked the travel through Country Travel Mart and we are really impressed with their service. It certainly was worth the trip.....and the very modest entry fee. Do not miss it...even seeing one orang utan is a bonus!Recommended for:

This is definitely one of the must-sees in Kuching! The orangutans are semi-wild, and they put out fruit for them during feeding times (9 - 10am and 2pm - 3pm) so you can see them up close. The admission fee recently went up to 10 Ringgit for non-Malaysians.
It's possible to get here by public bus #6 or a taxi should cost about 40 Ringgit for one-way.Recommended for:

Rehabilitated orangutans who now live in the wild still come back to Semenggoh for their daily feedings, and it's a remarkable sight! You're not guaranteed to see any monkeys, but while I was there, 6 made their way here for a fruit salad lunch, including tiny adolescents and enormous full-grown males. This is a short bus ride from Kuching and makes for a great day trip.

Amazing experience. However I'd recommend going mid-week not at weekends to escape the crowds. On the Sunday morning I went there were about 80 visitors and only 2 staff so we had to stay in the carpark area rather than venture into the forest as the staff were worried we wouldn't be safe. As a result only the bravest orangutans came to feed. It was still great, but I imagine with fewer people (and less barging) it would be even more amazing.

One of the best places to see Orangutans up close and contribute to a good cause. You can watch them feed either early morning or late afternoon.
You have the chance to see up to 10 of these ginger haired apes up close at the same time. A definite must see in this area.
