Kuching - Semenggoh Nature Reserve

Another interesting place to visit in Kuching is the Semenggoh Nature Reserve, which is located about 25 km from the Kuching town centre. There, you will also find the Orang Utan Santuary where you can see orang utans which have been left very much in their natural habitat. The feeding times are between 9.00 to 10.00 a.m. and between 3.00 to 3.30 p.m. 

There is no guarantee that you will see the orang utans, as they sometimes do not come out on cue, especially if they are not hungry. However, on my several visits to the Sanctuary, I was lucky enough to see the orang utans every time.

They are an amazing sight, and the baby orang utans are really cute ! This is really highly recommended for children, it is an experience they will remember for a long time.

As it's a nature reserve, you can also trek through the jungle to get a feel of the tropical rainforest. You will be able to see many of the indigeneous plant species native to Sarawak.
