  • We took the public bus to this place and were so glad we did. We were the first ones there and got to see a male feeding before any of the crowds arrived. Then Richie (the alpha male) showed up and ha...  more »
  • Our visit here was wonderful. We were very lucky as we saw 10 orangutans during our time here. There was a 45 year old grandmother who knew exactly how to play the audience, eating and drinking with h...  more »

  • For a great wild life experience, Semenggoh is a must. Here you can observe the endangered orangutans found only in Malaysia and Indonesia as close As you can possibly get to them ever. The park has rescued orangutans that it has rehabilitated in the area. You can see the wild orangutans when they are fed twice a day. It is a once in a lifetime experience. Must visit place.
  • Back to nature. Those who love hiking, this is a perfect place. We saw monkeys, wild boar in close distance. All kinds of flora and fauna is just nearby you. They took us to see the rock which eroded by the sea water and the wind. They comes in many kind of shapes. Use your imaginations, you could see faces, animal, shapes... Nature lovers should go
  • Awesome place to see orangutans. A bit of a hike from the main road but well worth it. If getting a cab ask him drop you off at the top. They have about 45 being cared for and rehabilitated and on a good day you can see 5 to 10. But be warned if the fruits are in season you may see none as they just get food from the trees but most people in the week we were they saw 1 or 2 minimum.
  • We saw 3 orangutans within minutes of arriving. The oldest female and one of the largest males..... Both with in feet of us. People arriving later would have missed them.. good paths, informative guides and displays.
  • Absolutely amazing. These are wonderful creatures. Magnificent. If you go please be quiet, listen to the staff, do not provoke the animals (eg. Call them, snap your fingers, whistle). They are not your servant.
