Semonggok Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is located south of Kuching and is a sanctuary used to rehabilitation Orangutans which have been injured or captured. See the Orangutans roaming freely in the wild and experience their feeding time in this unique setting in the rain forest.
The best place in Sarawak to view semi-wild orangutans, who have been rescued from captivity and trained to survive in the surrounding forest reserve.
The rehabilitated animals roam freely in the rain forest, and often return to the centre at feeding time. Thanks to the successful breeding programme at Semonggok there is a good possibility of experiencing one of the most heart-warming sights in Borneo - an orangutan mother with a young baby.
The centre is a 30 minute drive from Kuching and another 20 minute by foot into the jungle. 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 that can be incorporated into the tour.
