Half Day Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Center - Kuching and Sarawak
Half Day Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Center: The best place in Sarawak to view semi-wild orang utans, who have been rescued from captivity and trained to survive in the surrounding forest reserve. The rehabilitated animals roam freely in the rain forest, and often return to the centre at feeding time. Thanks to the successful breeding programme at Semenggoh there is a good possibility of experiencing one of the most heart-warming sights in Borneo – an orang utan mother with a young baby.
The centre is 30 mins drive from Kuching and another 20 mins on foot. Along the way visitors pass by the ethno-botanical gardens, with their unique collection of rain-forest plants. Semengok also has a number of short collection of rain-forest plants. Semenggoh also has a number of short jungle trails and optional forest walks can be incorporated into the tour. Note : As the orang-utan in Semenggoh are semi-wild, sightings cannot be guaranteed. At certain times of year when sightings are less likely, the tour will revert to Matang Wildlife Centre, where captive animals are under-going rehabilitation
