  • Beautiful Park and a great opportunity to see semi-wild orangutans up close! We were lucky to see two males and a female with baby! However since they're not captive there's no guaranty they'll show. ...  read more »

  • Extraordinary place...I would definetly advice to visit it! Never saw orangos from so close before (July 2013)...wonderful creatures!! 
  • A must visit place for nature lover. The orang utan is our closest relative and they are just so adorable but make no mistake because they are also wild, as wild as wild can be ...
  • Walked 25 minutes to see a freaking orang Utan. Spent 20 min been bitten by mosquitoes. Walked back in the rain. 😒
  • The park is a little way out of Kuching, about a 40 minute car ride, depending on the traffic. The set up is simple, there's an open area when you first arrive where there may well be some animals around. This largely depends on the time. Feeding times are at 1000 and 1500 and seem to be well attended by the Orangutans! The staff are knowledgeable and will probably be able to tell you the name of the animals you see. There's an interesting board showing all the inhabitants and how they're related. There are crocs here too.
  • Always visiting here and not to be disappointed with orang-Utans families around. Be careful not to visit during fruiting season
  • An amazing place to visit. Really incredible to see the orangutan so close. They come down to feed each day and it is really magical to see them. Try to get there a little before feeding time if possible to make sure you are ready. Also super important to follow the instructions of the park rangers as they are semi-wild animals and can be dangerous.
