  • Beautiful experience, well organized tour. Eventually but 2 Orang Utans seen on the feed place the other could find enough food in the wild (and that is ultimately intended)

  • We went to the Semanggoh Nature Reserve in February 2018. It was fruit season so, the orangutans are able to get food and fruits in the reserve. None of them came to the food platform when we went the...  more »
  • Lots of tourists along to see the 10.00 feeding. Of course, they may not turn up. Actually four did when we went, including a mother and child. Absolutely worth it.  more »

  • Was pretty lucky to be able to spot a mother and baby orangutan during the morning feeding time, but since we arrived pretty late the clerk originally refused to sell us the tickets, while in truth he was lazy to grab the tickets from the drawer in his desk. Minus 1 star because of this. Hope I don't meet such people again.
  • There's only 28 orangutans here. They live in their natural habitat. They might come out, or might not. I only saw 4. But that was good enough for me.
  • Very natural place, and well maintained, clean restroom. This is the place to get close to a tribe of Orang Utan without any barrier in between. But I didn't get to see one due to heavy rain.
  • Enjoy the forest and seeing the orang utan interact with each other. The caretakers display kindness and understanding, they really believe in what they are doing and care for nature. Worth going. Make sure you arrive early, before nine o'clock in the morning, or before three o'clock in the afternoon.

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
