Semenggoh Orangutan Centre

 

     Located about 25km south west of Kuching and set in lush tropical rainforest, Semenggoh became the first Forest Reserve in Sarawak when a large area of jungle was turned into a Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre for monkeys, orangutans honey bears and hornbills in 1975. The animals here were either orphaned as a result of logging operation or confiscated for being kept illegally as pets. However, today the purpose of the Centre is to train formally captive young orangutans to return to the wild and fend for themselves. (Other endangered captive animals are now kept at Matang Wildlife Centre)

 

Itinerary

    Pick up from your hotel at 8.am and depart by car for 40 min Semenggoh Orangutan Centre. Upon arrival, you will walk through half a kilometer on downhill path to the feeding platform. The viewing area provides a spectacular view of the rainforest canopy. The highlight of the tour is to observe the not yet fully independent youngsters come down from the jungle for their scheduled feeding. Although physical contact is not allowed, photos can be taken from a short distance. Following the visit, time permits, a short visit to the Information Centre where photos and exhibits provide information about these endangered animals, particularly the orangutans.
