Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre -
Orang Utan Tour

Situated 30 minutes away from the city by road is the Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.

Animal lovers and outdoor enthusiasts won't want to miss out on this excursion, which features a 740 acres sanctuary for a number of Sarawak's indigenous wildlife including the original " Man Of The Forest" - the unique and gentle Orang Utan. Be there just before the feeding time to see the orang utan coming out from the forest to the centre feeding platform and get a close encounter with them. Feeding is done twice a day by the park rangers

Most of the orang utan have been taken from illegal captivity during the illegal logging activities and poaching of animals in the jungle . Therefore , there are not many of them left in the jungle of Borneo . In the centre , they are then slowly rehabilitated to go back to their natural habitat .

Matang Wildlife Centre

About 50 minutes drive away from the city, the Matang Wildlife Centre is part of the Kubah National Park where you can find some endangered wildlife in large enclosed areas of rainforest or in some spacious cages. The main attraction here is the semi-wild Orang Utans that can be seen coming out to the feeding area. The young Orang Utans that are either orphaned or rescued from illegal captivity, are trained here to survive in the wild so that when they are ready, they shall be released to their natural habitat.

At the foothills of Mount Serapi, the backdrop of the wildlife centre, is a recreational park with picnic areas, jungle tracks and a crystal clear mountain stream that is splendid for swimming after your trek.
