State of Sarawak Off The Beaten Path Tips by DanielF
State of Sarawak Off The Beaten Path: 33 reviews and 73 photos
Borneo is one of the last places on Earth where the extremely endangered Orang Utan still roams free. The most famous Orang Utan Sanctuary is located in Sepilok, in the State of Sabah. But there is also a similar sanctuary near Kuching, called Semmenggoh. Orang-utans live in a semi-wild state while their acclimatation periode before their reintroduction into the jungle. You can visit the place at the feeding times, but it is not guaranteed that the orang-utans will appear on that particular day. As a matter of fact, we did not see any on the day we went there in spite of the desperate calls of the people that left the food for the apes.
We did see some gibbons and others species of apes, however. And, if you ask, the chances of seeing an orang-utan in the wild are virtually nihil.
