  • A lot of people! Sure 60 persons have been waiting for. Unfortunately, no monkeys seen. Well. (Space filler...)

  • If you're in Borneo, you go see the Orangutans. Simple as that. In Kuching, Semenggoh is the simplest way to encounter them. Cheaper and easier to access than Sepilok in Sabah, though maybe less devel...  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.
