Orangutan Sanctuarys in Borneo, Sarawak, Kuching – A Trip to the Mysterious Tropical Rainforest
Welcome to the Orangutan Sanctuarys at Semengok located in Sarawak, Borneo. One of the best Orangutan sanctuarys in the world. Semengok Wild life center is the best place in Borneo to view semi-wild orang utans, who have been rescued from captivity and trained to survive in the surrounding forest reserve. The rehabilated animals roam freely in the rain forest, and often return to the centre at feeding time. Thanks to the successful breeding programme at Semengok, 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 minutes drive from Kuching and another 20 minutes 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 jungle trails and optional forest walks can be incorporated into the tour.
