Visit the Semenggok Nature Reserve of Sarawak to see the “man of the forest.” The facility acts as a sanctuary for orangutans that either have been rescued from captivity or are orphaned. These animals are trained or re-trained to survive in their natural habitat. They learn how to forage for natural food and build nests in the trees. Many have been returned into the surrounding area of the nature reserve. During the daily scheduled feeding times, you have the unique chance to observe these great animals moving up in the trees or enjoying their meals of fruits. One of the most heart-warming sights is when you witness an orangutan mother with young baby return to the feeding area. However, sightings of orangutans are not guaranteed due to the fact that they are roaming freely.
