Sultans of Swing (Orang Utan) Full Day Trip - Semenggoh & Matang , Sarawak Borneo

Tour Description

Borneo’s most recognizable icon is undoubtedly the Orang Utan. The Malay word for ‘Man of the Forest’, the Orang Utan is human being’s ‘closest cousin’ sharing 96.4% of our genetic makeup.

Sarawak’s conservation efforts to rehabilitate orphaned Orang Utans are centered at the Matang Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre (MWRC) and previously the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre (SWC) now a wildlife sanctuary in the outskirts of Kuching city.

This special experience takes you to both these Centres and provides you with valuable insights into these amazing creatures.

You are guaranteed to meet ‘Aman’ the alpha male at MWRC in his enclosure and if you are lucky ‘Ritchie’ and his family at SWC might just drop by to pay you a visit.
