Semenggoh Nature Reserve

Semenggoh continues to reign as one of the fabled natural jewels of Borneo.

Located just on the fringes of Kuching city, it spills into the virgin rainforests that rise with the great inland peaks of Sarawak.

Between its borders are towering teak trees and swinging jungle vines, all peppered with blooming papayas and banana trees.

Those are munched on by the resident pack of 25 orangutans, which are the main reason so many thousands of people flock this way each year! (There’s a famous reserve on the grounds of Semenggoh that allows some of the most up-close-and-personal encounters with these fascinating simians.)
