Semenggoh Wildlife Centre

Tour Code: KCH3

Duration – 3 hours

Depart for the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre located a short drive from the centre of Kuching. The centre was established in 1975 for the rehabilitation of confiscated and surrendered wild animals. Observe the feeding of orang-utans requiring rehabilitation. Following feeding in the morning, the young Orang-utans will be let out of their enclosures for training /exercise. They will be brought to various locations in the forest. The aims of the centre are to rehabilitate confiscated wildlife which has been incapacitated or handicapped due to prolonged captivity by humans, with the objective of eventually releasing them to the forests; to conduct research on wildlife and captive breeding, particularly on endangered and game species for small scale farming; and to serve as an education centre for wildlife conservation for students, trainee teachers and the general public.

This tour to Semenggoh Wildlife Centre can be arranged at your convenience either in the morning or in the afternoon, to correspond with the feeding time of the orang-utans.
