Day 2

Orangutan Centre - Meet the "Man of the Forest"

22 km south of Kuching city lies the Semenggoh Nature Reserve of Sarawak. The entire facility occupies an area of 740 acres and acts as a sanctuary for orangutans (Malay for "man of the forest") that either have been rescued from captivity or young orphaned primates. These animals are trained or re-trained to survive in their natural habitat. They learn how to forage for natural food and build nests in the trees. Many have been returned into the surrounding area of the nature reserve. But there are few that will never completely re-learn their natural skills due to long association with and dependence on humans. During the daily scheduled feeding times, you have the unique chance to observe these great animals moving up in the trees or enjoying their meals of fruits. One of the most heart-warming sights is when you witness an orangutan mother with young baby return to the feeding area. However, sightings of orangutans are not guaranteed due to the fact that they are roaming freely within the nature reserve.

Duration3 Hours
