Semenggoh Nature Reserve reviews
A colleague and I did a side trip to the reserve. A group trip with bus pick up. Helpful guide sat us in the forest and the experience of being surrounded by the Orangutans was brilliant. Great for... more »
Gorgeous grounds and well worth a visit even if you do not see the orangutans. We stayed at the feeding platform area for almost an hour but they were a no show. This is good news which means that..... more »
As for now (July 2020), the route inside is been renovated /.. So, it's a brisk 2km (or more) walk till you reach the centre. Do come before the feeding time because that's the only time you may catch a glimpse of the wild rehabilitated orangutan that lives freely throughout the park. As they are focusing on conservation now, the orangutan are freed into the wild and there are around 35 of them recorded runs freely.
Love the fact that these orang utans live freely inside the jungle. I think the best moment is when the orang utan appear for the first time after the ranger calling for them. We manage to see 3 orang utans and they amazed me. One of them even do some crazy move on the rope, maybe it want to impress the female. Before you come, please check on the feeding time. There are 2 sessions everyday, so make sure you come at the right time. You can call them for more information and they will be happy to help (I did called). Staffs on the ground are friendly and informative.
