If you have travelled to Borneo mainly to see orangutans, I would suggest that you plan on two visits to Semenggoh, as the orangutans do not always appear. There are other activities in the area, and it would be heartbreaking to miss the chance to...More

We visited this beautiful location to hopefully view the Orang Utan feeding at 9.00am. Unfortunately for us the Orung Utans did not attend the platform which is disappointing but also encouraging as they are fending for themselves in the wild which is what we all...More

It's open from 2-4, we got there at 1.15pm. We walked through the reserve to get to the feeding station. Once there, the orang utan came and it's totally different to seeing them in a zoo. Here, it's their place, they allow us to visit...More

If you love orangutans than you should visit. You get to see them and appreciate them without getting in the way. Lovely experience to say the least.

No, you don't need a guided tour for this. If you can drive, rent a car. Or you can do it as part of a package. I did it with Kayaking.

Hi, no there are no other attractions. There is a market ( very smelly) on the way back to Kuching. It's only 30 minutes by taxi from the centre of Kuching. Don't book a tour to visit the Orangutans, very expensive and not... More
