Impressions of Orangutan @ Semenggoh

I never seen so many Orangutans within 2 weeks. It was not intentional, but I happened to visit baby Orangutan in Bukit Merah’s Orangutan Island, and then the zen orangutan who was a Yogi Master in Taiping Zoo. Things gotten wilder this week. I ended seeing semi-wild Orangutan in Borneo.

Semenggoh Wildlife Centre is 20km from Kuching town, Sarawak. Visitors can witness the feeding of Orangutans in nature reserve.

The daily feeding time is on 9am and 3pm at the rehabilitation centre. It was amazing to see how many fruits one Orangutan can carry with its limbs and mouth.
